6 Reasons Why DataXu Was a Coolest Companies Finalist


Each year in Boston, BostInno hosts the BostonFest Coolest Companies competition. This culture-focused competition recognizes companies who offer their employees more than free snacks and unlimited paid time off. The competition celebrates companies who have mastered the idea of employee happiness and engagement. This year DataXu was a finalist, and here’s why…

  1. We work together.

DataXu fosters an environment of collaboration and cooperation. Most companies would claim that their employees work together and share ideas, but that is an understatement when it comes to us. Spend one day at DataXu (I suggest a Wednesday), and you will be astonished by the teamwork that exists amongst XuKeepers. It’s inspiring to be a part of, and it’s quite remarkable how people come together to achieve a common goal: client success.

DataXu Teamworks


  1. Our offices are pretty sweet.

Productivity is highest when employees are happy and engaged. DataXu offices around the world are workplaces that people want to come to each day. The Boston office, for example, is full of inspiring people… and also really great snacks. We have a fully stocked kitchen, plenty of coffee, and a good looking beer fridge. DataXu equips employees with the tools they need to be successful, as well as plenty of collaborative work spaces throughout the office. If you need a moment to relax, you can pop into the Zen Room or attend an afternoon yoga class. Bring your dog to work day, foosball, corn hole, bean bags, standing desks and giant Jenga all make DataXu a fun place to work.

  1. Free food + drinks.

We suggested you visit DataXu on a Wednesday for a reason: free lunch! Every Wednesday, XuKeepers enjoy catered lunch from the best local restaurants. Every other Thursday, a DataXu team hosts a themed happy hour. These fun activities are a great way to break up the week.

  1. We give back, together.

Most companies encourage community service, but not all make it so easy to get involved and give back. DataXu has created the program DataXu Cares and invites employees to participate in various community service projects across the city each month. Giving back feels good, but it feels even better when you can simultaneously bond with coworkers while dedicating your time to the greater good.

  1. We’re appreciated.

It feels good when hard work is recognized. DataXu shows appreciation for its employees by rewarding XuKeepers both with monthly awards and appreciation outings. DX hosts events for employees both in the office and outside of the office. Company outings, department outings, and onsite events are always happening at the ‘Xu. This year, DataXu’s Boston summer outing included a lobster bake, water guns, and outdoor sports on Boston Harbor’s Thompson Island.

  1. DataXu is an inspiring place.

Working at DataXu is truly exciting. We are a leader in the industry and are currently experiencing sustained success and growth. The energy is palpable. We’re obsessed with our clients, our product, our people and innovation. Which is why twice a year, we host Innovation Day when employees stop working on everyday projects to partner with coworkers around the globe to better our company through Big Ideas.
