OUTSIDE’S Best Places to Work 2017 for Seventh Year in a Row


Seattle, WA (November 7, 2017) – Geocaching HQ has been selected as one of OUTSIDE’s Best Places to Work 2017. Not only are the winning companies great workplaces for employees, but they respect the environment and encourage a balance between work, and enjoying life in the great outdoors.

“Geocaching HQ is honored to be recognized in OUTSIDE’S Best Places to Work for the seventh year in a row,” said Bryan Roth, Cofounder and President of Geocaching HQ. “We’ve worked hard to co-create a workplace that embodies the adventurous spirit of the global geocaching community, and these awards are a wonderful acknowledgement of our continued progress towards this goal.”

“Companies from across the country entered a rigorous two-part survey process to make the winning list,” said Jonah Ogles, Articles Editor at OUTSIDE Magazine. “The Best Companies Group evaluates each nominated company's workplace policies, practices, philosophy, systems and demographics. There’s also an employee survey to measure personal experience.”

The winning companies are those that value productivity in combination with an active, eco-conscious lifestyle, for a fulfilling experience inside and outside the office. This is OUTSIDE’s tenth year providing the Best Places to Work.

Landing #21 on the overall list, Geocaching HQ and its passionate 80+ employees support the global game of geocaching and focus on bringing more discovery, exploration, and adventure into the lives of millions of people worldwide.  In addition to highly-encouraged geocaching outings with teammates, employees enjoy a variety of benefits including a stocked outdoor gear closet, communal eating space with catered lunches and endless snacks, unlimited ski lift tickets, global travel opportunities, healthy work/life balance, and comprehensive health coverage.
