We’ve Been Nominated for Four 2016 Work Local Awards!

We’re stoked to announce that we’ve been nominated for Best Co-Workers, Best Employer: Education, Best Employer: Startup, and Most Fun Place to Work for the 2016 Work Local Awards, a celebration of the best local employers in the Bay Area.


Update: We’re finalists! In the category of “Best Employer: Education” 😀




The Work Local Awards shines a spotlight on the boutiques, cafes, nonprofits, startups, and all the local employers that make our communities thrive. We were beyond excited to hear that Magoosh was nominated in these four awesome award categories (we definitely agree that we have the best co-workers who make it the most fun place to work!), and that we’re being recognized alongside such an amazing group of employers in our community!

The awards are presented by Localwise—the local job community in the Bay Area—in partnership with the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, Kiva Zip, and more. Localwise is a mission-driven organization focused on helping local businesses hire great local people.

If you live in the Bay Area and would like to join the fun, be sure to RSVP for the celebration event on April 28th. And keep your fingers crossed for the award results. 🙂
