Fortune Magazine held its Great Place to Work conference last week at the Sheraton Austin Hotel aimed at celebrating the nation’s best small to medium sized businesses.

And it named a Georgetown-based software company, AgileCraft as the number one best place to work out of 50 small businesses in the country.

Three other Austin-based companies made the list including AcademicWorks at the number three spot, BP3 Global, at the eighth spot, Square Root at the 16th spot.

And Cirrus Logic ranked No. 54 on the list of 100 best medium sized companies to work for in the U.S. Companies with fewer than 100 employees compete for placement on the 50 Best Small Workplaces list, and companies between 100 and 999 employees compete for placement on the 100 Best Medium Workplaces list.

The companies landed on the list, not because of perks, but because of “a sense of mission, trust from managers, autonomy for workers and a culture of teamwork and communication,” according to Fortune.

“That’s what emerges from 52,000 surveys of employees at small and medium-size companies, conducted by our partner, Great Place to Work,” according to Fortune.

AgileCraft, founded in 2007, earned the top spot when all of its 20 employees surveyed reported 100 percent positive feedback on the company. The software company helps large companies simplify software at scale. Its customers include Southwest Airlines, Principal Financial and AT&T.
