Better together Architects and designers work side-by-side in SKB’s studio.

RAMP UP YOUR résumés, Seattle. We live in one of the world’s great working metropolises—home to groundbreakers like Boeing, Microsoft, Starbucks, and Amazon. To find the latest crop of innovators, Seattle Met solicited nominations from more than 1,000 local executives and managers. We asked which Seattle businesses burn brightest when it comes to sweet perks, inspired work spaces, inclusive management style, family-friendly policies, and visionary bosses, and combined the responses with our own research. The result: 14 top companies where staffers actually (gasp!) enjoy spending their days. From local boutique agencies to mega tech firms, these are Seattle’s best places to work.

So draft your cover letter and send your best suit to the dry cleaners: You could be next in line to land a job at one of these cutting-edge businesses.
