Jackpocket has been included on Built In NYC’s list of Best Places to Work in 2022! The annual awards include companies of all sizes, from startups to major enterprises, nationally and in the eight largest tech markets.
Our NYC headquarters was recognized in the following categories:
“Jackpocket has grown immensely over the last year and we’ve truly doubled-down on making sure our culture and benefits would not only fully support our team, but also set an example for others,” says Peter Sullivan, founder and CEO of Jackpocket. “We’re honored to be recognized for the company culture we’ve worked hard to build — an egoless, collaborative atmosphere where people can create and grow."
Built In determines the winners of Best Places to Work based on an algorithm, using company data about compensation, benefits and companywide programming. To reflect the benefits candidates are searching for more frequently on Built In, the program also weighs criteria like remote and flexible work opportunities, programs for DEI and other people-first cultural offerings.

- Most Fridays the entire company logs on for our virtual Friday Wins, where we celebrate the team’s successes from the past week—complete with Seamless meal delivery for your lunch of choice.
- We have several employee-led resource groups that foster a diverse, inclusive workplace. Last year Jackpocket team members launched a Women’s Employee Resource Group and an Asian Pacific Islanders Plus Employee Resource Group to provide support and create a safe space in the workplace.
- Jackpockeeters can sign up to be paired with random teammates for a digital Meet and Greet. They get matched with a new teammate each week for a chance to connect with teammates across regions and job roles.
- Plus, we love shoutouts! Our Kudos system enables us to publicly recognize our teammates for their creativity, hard work, and performance.
We’re excited for new initiatives rolling out this quarter, including an employee mentorship program and an Employee of the Month recognition program.
