Nova Credit Named to Forbes - America's Best Startup Employers 2024

Nova Credit, the leading credit infrastructure and analytics company, has been named to the Forbes - America's Best Startup Employers list for the third consecutive year.

NEW YORK, March 5, 2024- Nova Credit has been named to the Forbes list of America’s Best Startup Employers for 2024, marking the company’s third consecutive appearance. This recognition comes weeks after Nova Credit was named a Great Place to Work®, also for the third consecutive year.

Informed by an in-depth analysis of over seven million data points collected from 3,000 qualified companies, the Forbes list of Best Startup Employers criteria is based on: 

  1. Employee Satisfaction: Employee retention, compensation & benefits, workplace flexibility, diversity, and inclusion initiatives are factored into consideration.

  2. Growth: Indicative data such as headcount growth, job openings, headcount totals, and website traffic are evaluated.

  3. Employer Reputation: Relevant workplace aspects and search terms were defined and tested (e.g. employee engagement, company culture, company strategy, etc).

“To be recognized as one of America’s best startup employers in 2024 is a testament to the people who power our mission every day,” says Misha Esipov, Co-founder and CEO of Nova Credit. “We’ve set out to accomplish our most ambitious launch roadmap since the company’s inception, and we wouldn’t be able to accomplish it without the backing of a strong cross-functional company culture.”

"Receiving this accolade for the third year running is a profound honor and a testament to the remarkable synergy within the Nova Credit community," states Vanessa Kowalski, Manager of People Operations at Nova Credit. "Our guiding principles—building bridges, challenge without ego, chug like a train, and make it your mission—serve as the cornerstone of our success. This recognition underscores our relentless pursuit of global financial inclusivity and emboldens us to continue striving for excellence in everything we do."
