BombBomb, a Colorado Springs-based video software company, has grown dramatically over the past decade. Even through periods of rapid growth, the team’s worked hard to maintain a positive, collaborative culture based on a clear mission and core values. This November, that commitment paid off, as BombBomb was named the Best Medium-Sized Company to Work For in Colorado (100-250 employees) by ColoradoBiz Magazine.
To qualify for the “Best Company to Work For Awards,” ColoradoBiz sent each nominee through three steps. First, company employees were asked to fill out a culture and engagement survey (BombBomb’s participation rate over 85% exceeded the average). Companies with high participation scores were moved onto the second step, which was direct evaluation of those survey scores. On a scale of 1-100, BombBomb’s survey scores were consistently in the high 90’s across survey themes and topics. Finally, ColoradoBiz Magazine held a poll on their website where people could vote for the top contenders.
“The BombBomb team actively promotes a collaborative culture and fosters our core values of relationships, service, flexibility, humility and fun. These values are more than just signs on the elevator; we interview and evaluate performance based on them,” says Sandra Martinez, Talent Management Director at BombBomb. “We have a dedicated People Team comprised of rotating members who serve as ambassadors of our culture. Career development and training are a priority and we have many employees who are promoted to positions from within. We have fun and aren’t afraid to have the tough conversations!”
In August of 2016, BombBomb was ranked number 665 on the INC 5000 Awards for America’s fastest-growing private companies. In 2017, BombBomb experienced 71% growth in full-time employees. The company was also awarded a “Colorado Companies to Watch Award,” which honors companies who have: had success in the marketplace, show strong potential for growth, contribute to quality job creation, continue to innovate products and processes, show powerful economic impact, encourage community enrichment, promote philanthropic actions, and have pioneered corporate culture.
The BombBomb employee total count is currently 121. A main portion of those employees work at their headquarters in the Wells Fargo building in Colorado Springs, CO. In 2016 Colorado was one of the fastest growing states with most of that growth occurring in El Paso County (Colorado Springs) and Colorado’s State Demographer’s Office is even predicting that Colorado Springs will outgrow Denver population wise by 2035 (KRDO News). According to a report by Brookings Institution’s Metropolitan Policy Program, Colorado Springs has the highest young adult growth rate in the U.S. On top of that, Colorado Springs is rated #2 Best Place to Live in the U.S. by U.S. News.
Along with the growth of Colorado Springs, BombBomb has continued to grow in 2018. This year alone, the company’s total revenue has increased 48% year over year. In addition to a constructive, intentional culture, evaluation and improvement in benefits packages help attract and maintain-top tier talent.
