We are excited to announce that we rank #17 on Glassdoor's Employees' Choice Awards for 2019!

This is the third consecutive year DocuSign has ranked in the top 25 large companies. We're thrilled that our commitment to providing a work environment where employees thrive and where many say they are doing the best work of their lives.

"Something special about Glassdoor is that it's really from our people. And when they take that extra effort to go to Glassdoor and say the positive things they've said about DocuSign and what it's like to work here, it feels fantastic," says Dan Springer, CEO of DocuSign.

We want to extend a big thank you to all of the employees who have taken the time to share their candid perspectives about working at DocuSign. Their reviews on Glassdoor provide a better sense of what it is like to work at DocuSign for potential new hires and can help them decide whether or not to join our team.

"People have so many choices today when it comes to employment. That To be able to be held up as a gold standard – it just fills me up with pride, "says Joan Burke, Chief People Officer.

Don't just take our word for it, check out some of the words written by DocuSign employees on Glassdoor over the past 12 months:

"Dan and his team are doing a killer job. How do we know that? They give themselves "grades" every quarter at our All-Hands meetings. They follow up on the things they said that they would do and didn't do and keep everybody up-to-date on progress. Obviously, the company has been performing at a high level and when that happens, sometimes a leadership team loses sight of the "small stuff". Not this team. They care. They have increased benefits, they've been proactive about relevant topics i.e. equal pay, diversity, leadership pathways etc. If Dan's approval rating tells you anything, the company as a whole has a lot of confidence in what Dan and his C-Suite team are doing on a day-to-day basis as they lead our company post-IPO."

"Within engineering, I have had the privilege of being mentored and getting to work with some extremely bright people. Every conversation I have furthers my career and my ability to contribute as much as possible. On top of the incredible people the benefits are generous. DocuSign really cares about its employees."

"I have never been around so many people with such a high level of EQ in my life. It makes for a fun atmosphere on the Market Development/Sales Development floor. The team comes from super diverse types of work experience as well…which makes for interesting and engaging conversations with co-workers. Some people come from sales roles at other companies…but it seems that managers are willing to take a risk on "less traditional" backgrounds (i.e. military, technical program management, service industry, education, etc.)"

We'd also like to congratulate our fellow best place to work companies for 2019. You can view the complete list of honorees in the Glassdoor Best Places to Work in 2019 here. And if you'd like to learn more about career opportunities at DocuSign, check out our openings.

Our "Women in Tech" blog series places the spotlight on female employees in tech jobs who tell us about why they decided to start a career in software engineering, what they do at DocuSign, who their role models are and more. At DocuSign, we believe in the next generation of female leaders in technology and want to help them get on the right career trajectory. This week we sat down with Gal in Platform Architecture based in Tel Aviv to learn more about her career.

What is your current role at DocuSign and what do you actually do day-to-day in that role?

I am a software engineer on the DSA team. As part of my role, I fix bugs, code new features and attend status/design meetings.

What did your kids, friends or family think you do?

They think I code digital signature algorithms.

When did you choose to work in technology and why?

Growing up I was good at math, and I enjoyed spending time on my computer. However, I never actually tried programming until I was in university. My dad, who started out as a software engineer, thought computer science would be a good fit for me, and I went for it.

What excites you most about working at DocuSign and why?

I like being part of an innovative company that also cares about giving back to the community. I like getting the chance to collaborate with great people from all over the world. I like how approachable everyone is.

As a woman in tech, do you have any role models in technology that you look up to? Who are they and why do you look up to them?

I look up to local Israeli entrepreneurs like the founders of Waze, Mobileye, Wix, and Check Point that were able to realize their technological visions and found companies that are now global leaders.

What advice would you give women who might be considering a career in technology?

Go for it! Be passionate about what you do and be eager to learn. You don't have to be the loudest or most experienced person in the room for others to notice you and appreciate your work.

Women in Tech at DocuSign: Bree D.

Our "Women in Tech" blog series places the spotlight on female employees in tech jobs who tell us about why they decided to start a career in software engineering, what they do at DocuSign, who their role models are and more. At DocuSign, we believe in the next generation of female leaders in technology and want to help them get on the right career trajectory. This week we sat down with Bree in Engineering based in Warrenville to learn more about her career.

What is your current role at DocuSign and what do you actually do day-to-day in that role?

I'm a mid-level software engineer at the Warrenville office. My day-to-day generally focuses on code. Most of the time I'm coding a mixture of features and bug fixes. But I also work with my coworkers in a mixture of pair programming, designing features, and reviewing other's code. Another important part of my day is leading board game sessions. Every day at lunch my office plays competitive, team-based board games. It's been a great way for us to bond and backstab, and it's a highlight of the day.

What did your kids or friends and family think you do?

They think I do some magic and hard work to somehow makes a website where you can legally sign documents. Fortunately, it's a lot easier than magic, but still requires some hard work. But even my friends and family see my generous work-life balance and think it can't be too hard.

When did you choose to work in technology and why?

I decided to try out a Computer Science class as a freshman purely as an elective. I loved video games and was decently proficient with computers and phones, so I thought it would be an interesting class. It ended up being my hardest course. My professor taught fast, and I learned cripplingly slow. But I loved how challenging it was. It was bittersweet when I figured out bugs that were my fault, and it was amazing when I finally submitted my last project. I wasn't even a decent programmer by the end of the course, but I made something that worked! At the end of that tough semester, I decided a challenge was good. So I changed my major to Computer Science.

What excites you most about working at DocuSign and why?

My team loves to focus on being the best programmer you can be. We emphasize learning, taking advantage of opportunities, and being the best. Even when I was new and a junior software engineer, my team quickly helped me ramp up and immediately placed me on big projects. Now I'm a different programmer than I thought I would be; I help mentor, and come up with side projects that will help our codebase and team. I go for opportunities I thought I would never receive or even accept. And I love that DocuSign has given me these opportunities.

As a woman in tech, do you have any role models in technology that you look up to? Who are they and why do you look up to them?

I really look up to an old coworker of mine. He taught me that I should be the best team programmer. Others shouldn't have to spend time deciphering my code or fixing hidden bugs in it. Instead, it should be clean, maintainable and extensible. So now, I take professional pride in my code. Every day I analyze my code and try and make it better. It has helped me a lot at work since I can easily accommodate new features, or people can pick up where I've left off.

What advice would you give women who might be considering a career in technology?

Stick with it if you enjoy it, even if it's tough. It was a literal struggle for me to get in the programmer mindset. It took me 2 years before things "clicked," but I'm so happy I persevered.
