Odessa, a global leader in asset finance software, today announced receiving the 2020 Timmy Award for Best Tech Work Culture in Philadelphia. For Odessa it’s more than “perks” that make up a rewarding team environment; it’s about a shared mission, meaningful recognition and promoting innovation, learning and technical creativity.
Odessa is an asset management platform that helps equipment leasing and auto finance companies bring efficiency to their operations. To power ongoing innovation on the platform, Odessa fosters diversity of thought and critical thinking through internal hackathons including an annual Launchpad innovation program.
“We are dedicated to creating a positive and collaborative culture where team members are free to challenge the status quo, be relentlessly curious and seek innovation,” said Madhu Natarajan, Co-founder and CEO, Odessa. “From the very beginning in 1998, company culture has been built on the intrapreneurial spirit – we apply this way of thinking to not only solve problems, but to create work that is truly transformational for our customers.”
“It’s an honor to be selected, particularly in a year marked by unprecedented uncertainties. We have an exceptional team who has flexed, adapted,” says Keelie Fitzgerald, SVP Marketing. “We are thrilled to be acknowledged for the unique, rewarding culture we have created.”
Industry notables from Netflix, Slack, Pipe, and PayPal, lined the panel of judges who named Odessa a winner of this year’s Best Tech Work Culture awards.
“More than ever, it’s important to recognize the strong cultures companies have established,” says Mandy Walker, Director of Marketing at Tech in Motion. “The Timmy Awards allow the community to highlight the companies building a team worth joining and a culture worth working for.”
