Best Places to Work in DC: Snagajob

Arlington and Glen Allen; 266 employees

On Fortune magazine’s list of 50 Best Small and Medium-Size Companies to Work For, Snagajob is headquartered in Glen Allen, Virginia—about two hours from DC—but recently opened an office in Arlington, where it’s hiring rapidly, up to 35 staffers. Snagajob is a service that connects hourly-job seekers with employers, and “Snaggers” say they like the mission of putting people in jobs. They’re happy to have snagged a job with this firm: “Working here is as fun and stress-free as work gets,” says account executive Jordan LaBella. A “culture squad” plans monthly outings such as an office Olympics (relay races, chair dancing) and a St. Patrick’s Day party with green beer and bagpipers, plus there’s a healthy work/life balance.
