Blackbaud Named to Built In’s List of Best Places to Work in Austin for Third Year in a Row

Blackbaud is honored to be recognized on Built In’s list of 100 Best Places To Work in Austin 2021. Built In determines winners for Best Places to Work based on an algorithm that uses company data about compensation, benefits and cultural programs. To reflect the attributes candidates are searching for on Built In today, this year’s program weighted criteria more heavily, like remote opportunities and programs for diversity, equity and inclusion. 

“These companies raise the bar for cultural excellence and the ability to adapt to meet changing needs of employees,” says Sheridan Orr, Chief Marketing Officer, Built In. “The 2021 winners show a commitment not just to creating meaningful cultures but to delivering talent needs as they change in a dynamic landscape. We’re thrilled to extend our congratulations to the winners.”    

“Blackbaud is proud to be represented on Built In’s list of Best Places to Work in Austin for the third consecutive year,” said Kyle Crager, deputy head of Human Resources, Blackbaud. “Our mission is to help good take over, and we are continually looking for top talent to help us power social good and make a difference in our communities.”
