iolo Tech: One of Top 25 Places to Work in L.A.

For the third year in a row, award highlights iolo’s creative culture, open communication, and its many opportunities for innovation, growth and professional development

LOS ANGELES, CA – August 30, 2011 – iolo technologies, a world leader in PC performance and tune-up software, was once again named one of the Best Places to Work in LA by the Los Angeles Business Journal. The award marks the third time iolo placed among the top organizations selected from more than 10,000 companies operating in Los Angeles County, and complements its recent recognition as the fastest-growing company in the U.S. and Canada by International Business Awards.

The distinction, based primarily on employee feedback in a process coordinated by Los Angeles Business Journal and Best Companies Group, placed iolo at #25 this year, 5 spots higher than last year and 21 spots higher than in the first year it was included on the list. For the third year in a row, iolo was praised for achieving great successes over the last 13 years while maintaining an entrepreneurial and collegial environment. As the Los Angeles Business Journal describes in its special Aug 15 awards issue, “iolo technologies is committed to fostering and building new talent, with ample opportunities for education, growth and professional development. Not a “revolving-door” sort of place, iolo is interested in getting and keeping good people around. The company’s open-door policy and flat organization structure are among the things that keep people around – ideas or suggestions are not only welcome but often implemented by top management.”

iolo technologies, maker of System Mechanic®, the #1 best-selling PC tune-up software in the U.S., Canada, U.K, France and Benelux countries, presents unrivalled opportunities for career advancement and continued learning. iolo also provides an energetic and exciting professional culture, with a variety of flexible working arrangements and lifestyle and environmental perks. The company is repeatedly praised for balancing a challenging set of technical innovation and business goals with company-wide social events and celebrations of major milestones and successes.

“iolo’s technical excellence and continued significant growth have been recognized this year by a record number of industry analysts and technology media worldwide. iolo’s executive team has also been honored with multiple Management Team of the Year accolades,” said Noah T. Rowles, iolo’s founder and CEO. “But being acknowledged as one of the Best Places to Work in LA by our very own employees – for the third year in a row – is by far the most important measurement of our success. This award once again affirms iolo’s culture of creativity, innovation, teamwork and competitive energy, and recognizes the tremendous talent and continued commitment of all our employees.”
