Security Operations leader recognized as leading cybersecurity employer
Great Place to Work® and Fortune magazine have ranked Arctic Wolf as #10 on the 2022 Best Medium Workplaces, making it the leading cybersecurity employer and one of the best places to work in information technology nationwide. Earning a top placement on this distinguished listing is a testament to Arctic Wolf’s talent, culture, and commitment to providing a thriving and collegial environment for its growing workforce.
To determine the Best Medium Workplaces list, Great Place to Work analyzed the survey responses of over 200,000 employees from Great Place to Work-Certified™ companies with 100 to 999 U.S. employees. In that survey, 98% of Arctic Wolf’s employees said Arctic Wolf is a great place to work. This number is 41% higher than the average U.S. company.
“Arctic Wolf’s incredible team and the workplace culture we’ve created is the driving force behind our success as a business. This recognition from Fortune magazine and Great Place to Work® further indicates our reputation as an industry-leading employer,” said president and chief executive officer, Nick Schneider. “The passion that our people have for Arctic Wolf and our mission to end cyber risk make working here a truly special experience every day. We celebrate and thank them for all they do to earn this incredible honor.”
Arctic Wolf is committed to its “Pack Unity” culture, built on respecting, listening and empowering employees to reach their full potential inside and outside the workplace. When hiring, Arctic Wolf places an emphasis on seeking talented

Some of the unique programs and benefits that make Arctic Wolf an employer of choice include:
- Placing culture at the forefront of Arctic Wolf’s mission to end cyber risk has fueled significant growth for the company.

Arctic Wolf’s focus on nurturing employees’ careers and advancement is core to its employee retention rates, one of the strongest in the cybersecurity industry.
- Making community engagement a key cultural tenet by providing employees with the resources to become difference makers in their communities by encouraging employees to take paid Volunteer Time Off to assist their favorite charitable cause. All Pack members are also encouraged to further their growth through online courses and reward their colleagues with gift card awards through a peer-to-peer recognition platform.

Arctic Wolf is committed to building external partnerships with technology advocacy organizations that support women, minorities and LGBTQIA+ groups that play a critical role in giving back to local communities and broadening the diversity of Arctic Wolf’s employee base.
The Best Medium Workplaces list is highly competitive. Great Place to Work is the only company culture award in America that selects winners based on how fairly employees are treated. Companies are assessed on how well they are creating a great employee experience that cuts across race, gender, age, disability status, or any aspect of who employees are or what their role is.
“It’s not the size of an organization that makes it great, but how the organization treats its people,” says Michael C. Bush, CEO of Great Place to Work. “And these medium workplaces have proven that the inspiring cultures they’ve created go head-to-head with those of any large corporation. Leaders at these companies put their people first, and in return, achieve stronger business results than the average workplace.”
This 2022 Best Medium Workplaces™ win is a reflection of Arctic Wolf’s continued commitment to cultivating a collaborative and productive work environment that welcomes a diversity of backgrounds, cultures and ideas. In July 2022, Fortune magazine ranked Arctic Wolf as the third Best Workplace for Millennials™ and in 2021, Great Place to Work® named the company as a Best Workplace for Parents™.
