Mercatus celebrates making the 2023 List of Best Workplaces™ in Technology
Mercatus is proud to announce that it has once again been named on Great Place to Work’s List of Best Workplaces in Technology.
TORONTO – June 8, 2023 — Mercatus, a leading provider of eCommerce solutions for grocery retail, announced today that the organization has made it onto the 2023 Best Workplaces in Technology List. Mercatus has previously been on the list for 3 consecutive years from 2019-2021.
As a remote-first organization, technology plays a key role in creating a work environment where innovation thrives and teams feel empowered by the tools and resources Mercatus provides. The company uses 15Five, a performance management tool, to schedule 1:1 meetings with managers, prioritize weekly tasks, and recognize team member’s achievements through the High Fives program. Team members also have personal Udemy accounts where they can access over 25,000 development courses.
Mercatus has fostered an environment that encourages collaboration between diverse team members, an ideology supported by employee-led Culture and IDEA (Inclusivity, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility) Teams. All contributors are able to voice their ideas, share resources, and participate in the decision making process. In speaking about the benefits of working in the technology sector, Mercatus Platform Team Lead, Supriya Gownivari, expressed how, “being a part of a diverse team where everyone had mutual respect for each other created a safe space for innovation where I felt like I could contribute my ideas and feel valued. As I transitioned to my role as a people leader, I was able to learn and grow my skills to support my personal career development at Mercatus.” It is this inclusive approach that has led Mercatus to new heights of product innovation.
Earlier this year, Mercatus unveiled the next generation of mobile grocery shopping by announcing the launch of Mercatus mobile. Built with the latest mobile innovations in mind, Mercatus Mobile delivers a seamless shopping experience to help grocers increase mobile conversions, improve order frequency and retain online customers. The solution’s developer friendly architecture was created by a team of developers at Mercatus to allow for faster feature releases and innovation focused on customer convenience.
Mercatus greatly appreciates the dedicated team of passionate, growth-minded employees who have made the organization stand out as a Great Place to Work in Technology. The organization will continue to set new benchmarks for workplace culture in technology led by our core values:
