Printful has become an attractive employer not only due to its rapid growth but also due to its diverse internal culture.

Printful's CEO Davis Siksnans comments: ”We are experiencing major growth in the e-commerce industry, which is why we have to keep expanding our operations globally. We are honored to be recognized among the best startup employers in America, however, now more than ever, we need to keep in mind the importance of maintaining our company culture and take care of our employees.”

Companies for the Forbes America's Best Startup Employer 2021 list were identified by the market research company Statista. A total of 2,500 American businesses founded between 2011 and 2018 with at least 50 employees were evaluated. All companies were considered based on three main criteria. First, employer reputation was evaluated by reviewing content including phrases such as “corporate culture,” “diversity,” and “employee engagement.” Then the overall employee satisfaction was assessed, supported by the growth of the company, examining website traffic and head counts over a two-year period resulting in a final list of the best 500 employers.
