DigitalOcean Named to Wealthfront's Career-Launching Companies List for the Second Consecutive Year

NEW YORK, NY - October 26, 2016 - DigitalOcean, the cloud for developers, today announced that it has been named to Wealthfront's Annual List of Career-Launching Companies: https://blog.wealthfront.com/2017-career-launching-companies-list/. This is the latest accolade for the company. Earlier this year, DigitalOcean was named to the first-ever Forbes 2016 Cloud 100, the definitive list of the world's top-tier private companies leading the cloud technology revolution, and one of 25 cloud vendors to watch by InformationWeek.

Wealthfront Founder and Executive Chairman Andy Rachleff said: "We believe the companies we list each year are the ideal places for young people to start their careers because they are all highly likely to turn into large businesses, and nothing early in your career is more important than achieving success – and nothing signals success more than working for a successful company."

DigitalOcean VP of People Matt Hoffman said: "It's a great honor to receive this recognition from Wealthfront. We've been committed from the beginning to creating a work environment dedicated to growing and developing our employees because we know that is what attracts and retains the best talent and makes it possible for them to achieve their highest level of performance. We are proud of the scale of experience and opportunity we offer, and we know that people who join us learn and grow from the ongoing investment we make in their career development."
