ATLANTA, September 16, 2014 – Cardlytics, an Atlanta-based advertising and technology company and the industry leader in Card-Linked Marketing, was named one of the top 20 Best Places to Work in Atlanta on September 12. The company was ranked #13 on the Best Places to Work list in the medium-sized business category. The coveted distinction is earned by Atlanta companies – small, medium and large – across a variety of industries.
The news was announced at the Atlanta Business Chronicle Best Places to Work breakfast event at the Georgia World Congress Center. Representatives from several hundred companies and some of the most influential business people in the Atlanta market attended. The keynote speaker, U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson, addressed the crowd, noting that a business’s environment and core principles have a direct impact on inspiring employees.
This is the first year Cardlytics has been ranked on the Best Places to Work list. The firm is among the winners included in a special section in this week’s Atlanta Business Chronicle.

Their level of excellence and commitment is the reason we lead the Card-Linked Marketing sector and continue to innovate in digital media.”
The nomination process, facilitated by Quantum Workplace, took place this summer. After receiving all the initial nominations, the employees of each nominated company completed a scientifically valid survey, and those organizations were then rated based on survey responses on work environment, people practices and other matrices. Atlanta Business Chronicle said that this year more than 300 companies and organizations participated in the surveys and more than 18,000 employees completed surveys.
