Managed mobility services (MMS) provider MOBI received the Company Culture of the Year award during TechPoint’s 17th annual Mira Awards honoring the best of tech in Indiana.
MOBI is a fast-growing managed mobility services (MMS) company located in new 60,000 sq. ft. headquarters on the Northwest side of Indianapolis. They recently promoted 65 of their own software developers and other rockstar employees internally so they need to hire 70-90 top performers this year to keep up with the 150 corporate customers they already have, as well as capitalize upon opportunities for significant global growth.
The Mira Awards judges were impressed by the way MOBI navigated remarkable growth — from 20 people to hundreds — at the same time that the company merged its operations and staff with another company. Some companies break down when faced with such adversity, but MOBI thrived and used its bootstrapped/startup legacy culture to create a common cause, a “we’re all in this together” mentality that endures today.
Employees at MOBI follow a passion-based career path and create lasting connections and friendships within the company through MOBI Connect, an initiative that links employees to those with similar interests to their own. More than 91 percent of MOBI employees report that they would recommend working at the company to friends and family. Plus, everyday at 4 p.m., the beer is flowing at MOBI.
TechPoint, the growth initiative for Indiana’s tech ecosystem, honored Indiana’s best companies, entrepreneurs, educators, and other leaders for their technology excellence and innovation at The Westin in downtown Indianapolis during the 17th annual Mira Awards gala presented by Angie’s List, Interactive Intelligence, and Salesforce.
A total of 17 award winners and seven runners-up were chosen from the 98 outstanding companies, organizations, and individuals who were selected as nominees this year out of the 168 applications received highlighting achievements during the 2015 calendar year.
Forty independent, volunteer judges spent more than 700 total hours reviewing and ranking applications, interviewing nominees, and selecting this year’s winners. Judges included company founders, CEOs and presidents; CTOs, CIOs and software developers; professors and chancellors from Indiana universities; design, human resources and sales professionals, and a variety of other subject matter experts.
The Mira Awards — named after a variable star thousands of times brighter than the Earth’s sun — represent the best of tech in Indiana each year.
