Dayton, OH – Parallax Advanced Research has been added to Purpose Jobs’, the largest community of purpose-driven startup and tech professionals, list of best places to work in 2024. The list covers companies headquartered and hiring in emerging tech hubs such as Detroit, Cincinnati, Columbus, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, as well as remote first companies.

Companies across emerging tech hubs (and those hiring remotely) were evaluated on and selected for a variety of criteria: positive culture, robust benefits, learning and growth opportunities, flexibility, and purpose.

“We are thrilled to be included on Purpose Jobs’ list of the Best Places to Work in 2024,” said Olivia Kriel, Human Resources manager, Parallax Advanced Research. “We are always committed to offering a great work experience for our employees, putting their growth and health first, and creating a space where employees can bring their authentic selves to work every day.”

With the rise of inflation, economic uncertainty and layoffs across the board, the job market has been turbulent and making people rethink their careers and purpose. Professionals are reprioritizing what’s important to them in a job and a lot of it has nothing to do with the job itself. They’re looking for great cultures, growth opportunities, flexibility, and the chance to work in a purpose-driven environment.

“No matter the market, purpose and people are a priority for top talent,” said Ryan Landau, founder, and CEO of Purpose Jobs. “We’re proud to have so many companies in our community that put those things first, providing excellent places to work in emerging tech hubs, and beyond.”

As hiring has drastically slowed down in the tech sector, finding opportunities at these purpose-driven companies has become increasingly harder. This list features over 130 top companies, vetted by Purpose Jobs, and most of them are actively hiring today.
