Rackspace Austin Is One Of Austin’s Top Workplaces

For the second year in a row, the Rackspace office in Austin has been selected as one of the Austin American-Statesman Top Workplaces. We’re thrilled to have moved up six spots to No. 25 in the midsize category for 2012!

The Top Workplaces are determined based solely on employee feedback. The survey is conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, a leading research firm on organizational health and employee engagement. WorkplaceDynamics conducts regional Top Workplaces programs with more than 30 major publishing partners and recognizes a national list of Top Workplaces.

Our Austin Rackers are treated to perks such as an on-site gym (with free workout classes three days a week and yoga twice a week), and healthy lunch vendor options throughout the week. In addition, a free Wi-Fi-equipped shuttle takes Rackers daily, back and forth, to Rackspace’s San Antonio mother ship. Events such as Sumo wrestling to raise money for the Capital Area Food Bank; all day hackathons; monthly rookie mixers; “Racksgiving;” Earth Day, where you can bring your dog to work; and our annual holiday soirée keep up the fun and weirdness in the office.

While working, Austin Rackers enjoy an open, collaborative environment. Known as one of the Rackspace Innovation Centers, our Austin Rackers are working on cutting edge technology and are constantly innovating on ways to provide Fanatical Support to our customers.

In the Austin office, we have a group of leaders (managers and non-managers) who are committed to making this a great place to work. Throughout the year, they work tirelessly on committees with functions ranging from communications to office logistics. Our improvement year over year is a testament to the hard work and dedication of these awesome Rackers.
