Highest-Rated Cloud Computing Companies to Work For in 2021


Battery Ventures, the global investment firm, recently published the 25 Highest-Rated Public Cloud Computing Companies to Work For and the 25 Highest-Rated Private Cloud Computing Companies to Work For During the Covid Crisis. Battery’s annual list of the highest-rated cloud firms was based on data provided by Glassdoor collected between March and August 2020, the first six months of the COVID19 pandemic.

Zoom, the videoconferencing company, topped the list in the public companies list, while Dataiku, an AI and ML company, took top honors in the private companies list.

Key Facts
  1. 1

    The qualification criteria for private cloud companies were an employee strength of 200 or more, at least 20 employee reviews on Glassdoor, and should have raised funding since 2016.

  2. 2

    The qualification criteria for public cloud companies was an enterprise value of at least $500 million by the end of Q3 2020.

  3. 3

    8 of the 25 highest-rated private cloud computing companies are going through a hiring surge. These companies are Dataiku, Couchbase, Fivetran, Mavenlink, Freshworks, Sprinklr, MoEngage, and Unity Technologies.

  4. 4

    6 of the 25 highest-rated public cloud companies are going through a hiring surge, including Zoom, RingCentral, Zscaler, Ping Identity, Coupa, and Datadog.

  5. 5

    Florian Douetteau, CEO at Dataiku, and Zoom Founder & CEO Eric Yuan are the highest-rated private and public cloud computing CEOs.


The companies on both the public and private list are those where employees reported the highest levels of satisfaction at work on Glassdoor. Battery Ventures had last released its list of highest-rated cloud computing companies in the spring of 2019.

Since then, 13 of the top 50 private companies in the 2019 list have either been acquired or have gone public. These include Zoom, Asana, Sonatype, Sprout Social, Segment, nCino, Looker, Slack, Health Catalyst, ThousandEyes, PagerDuty, Snowflake, and Cumulus Networks.

Amidst the global pandemic, business leaders believe adopting cloud platforms and applications is the ideal solution to protect employee health and provide them with the necessary tools to remain productive. Despite challenging times, cloud technologies helped created hundreds of new jobs.

Gartner forecasts global public cloud end-user spending to grow by 18% in 2021 from $257.5 billion in 2020 to $304.9 billion in 2021.

We knew that any data collected before the pandemic would not be very consequential, since the virus has turned most companies upside down. So, we delayed the release of our list and focused on how employees rated companies from March through the end of August when the culture was particularly critical.
