Every year, Built In publishes a list of the best places to work in each major city across the U.S. First Mode has now been on Seattle’s list for three years in a row: Having been included on the Best Small Companies lists in 2020 and 2021, we graduated this year to the Best Midsize Companies list, which features companies with 101–500 local employees.

Built In’s ranking rates companies based on their benefits and employee-submitted compensation data, with a final rank determined by combining each company’s score in both categories. Other companies featured on this year’s Midsize list include Glossier, Moz, OfferUp, and PayScale.
