has been ranked among Forbes’ “Best Startup Employers for 2020.” PeerStreet is included as part of Forbes’ inaugural list of America’s “Best Startup Employers for 2020,” which recognizes 500 companies in this class. To be selected, PeerStreet was evaluated across three main categories, including Employer Reputation, Employee Satisfaction and Company Growth.
“It is a huge honor to be recognized in Forbes’ first list of this kind. We have incredible talent here at PeerStreet and our goal has always been to provide the best working environment we can for our employees,” said PeerStreet Co-Founder and COO Brett Crosby. “We expect a lot out of them and our talented team members have allowed us to achieve the success we have today. We look forward to continuing our journey together.”
This award win comes at an exciting time for PeerStreet, through both the growth of their marketplace and the growth of their team. In 2019, PeerStreet announced a $60 million Series C fundraise, along with securing $4.25 billion in new capital commitments to purchase loans through PeerStreet’s proprietary platform. These funds are being used to continue to expand the company’s product offerings for investors and lenders alike. Culture has remained a priority for the firm throughout its growth, and PeerStreet has been recognized numerous times for its corporate culture, including being named among the “Best Places to Work in Los Angeles” in 2019 by Comparably, and among American Banker’s “Best Fintechs to Work For in 2020.”
The award is presented by Forbes and Statista Inc., a statistics portal and industry-ranking provider. Forbes and Statista analyzed more than seven million data points to identify the top Startup employers out of thousands of qualified organizations to select those recognized this year.
