We offer fabulous company benefits and a fast-paced, highly motivated, enormously fun work environment — not to mention a career with tons of potential to grow within the company.

Our employees and leadership agree:

"Our heritage in open source software means we drive to give back at all levels. We are encouraged to do so and have great fun with it!"

"I like the focus on well-being coming from people/talent team and perks/resources to help us help ourselves - I feel like the organisation cares about employee well-being."

"I am proud to be working for a company that is open and honest, while supporting the community where possible. The company is fair, ethical and inclusive."

"Acquia has a great set of values that encourage ownership and allow for failure - this enables employees to do great things without fear of consequence - thus innovation is ripe."

"I think Acquia has a great balance between 'running a business' and being supportive of its employees. We have a fair benefits policy, good equipment to do our job, paid fairly and the team spirit is amazing. All of these combined, for me, make this a great place to work." 

“In order to create a world-class customer experience, you must first invest in your most important customers - your people," said Heather Hartford, Chief People Officer at Acquia.

Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place to Work® UK, explained: “Now in its fifth year, our 2022 list showcases the largest collection of Best WorkplacesTM in Tech that the UK has ever recognised. 

“These results are based on what employees working in the technology industry have anonymously reported to us about their workplace experience. In a fast and ever-evolving industry, these organisations are at the forefront of ensuring employees have the right environment to thrive, they are focused on providing positive work experiences, they value diversity, differences and better ways of doing things and, importantly, are investing in effective leadership to ensure continuous growth.

“A huge congratulations to Acquia for making one of our most prestigious lists."
