AvidXchange was named in LinkedIn’s “Top Companies 2021: Charlotte” list, a new list that looks at the best workplaces to grow your career in 10 emerging cities throughout the U.S. This list is intended to be used as a go-to resource for professionals at every stage of their career journeys at a local level.
To compile the list, LinkedIn examined unique LinkedIn data specifically in the Charlotte metropolitan area. They measured seven pillars that have been shown to lead to career progression: ability to advance, skills growth, company stability, external opportunity, company affinity, gender diversity and educational background. Companies must have at least 50 employees in the city to be eligible for this list.
AvidXchange, a Charlotte “unicorn,” has become one of the most well-known, high growth fintech companies in the payments industry. With over 1,500 employees supporting 7,000+ customers across North America, AvidXchange processed approximately 53 million transactions with over $145 billion in spend under management in 2020 and has paid more than 700,000 suppliers through its network over the last five years. But more importantly, AvidXchange puts as much focus on its business development as it does its talent.
Over the past year, AvidXchange has continued to distinguish itself from other rapidly growing technology companies by offering unique benefits with employees’ health, wealth, and self-care in mind like paid volunteer hours, on-site COVID-19 vaccination opportunities, short vesting 401k plans, and tuition reimbursement. These opportunities are offered through AvidXchange’s new “My Wellbeing” benefit framework, in addition to social and mental/emotional-focused opportunities like AvidXchange’s “Mental Health and Self Care” meetup group that’s open to all employees to join.
Additionally, AvidXchange shifted to a flexible work environment in light of last year’s transition to remote work to create the best experience for employees and fit today’s new, unique set of work-life balance needs. Lastly, AvidXchange offers personal and professional development opportunities like the company’s “Real Xchanges” sessions – curated for employees to speak on race, LGBTQ, and gender (and more!) topics and educate fellow teammates.
Information about AvidXchange’s location and headcount is mentioned in the feature, as well as the most common skills among its Charlotte employees including, process Improvement, SQL, and Customer Satisfaction, and the company’s most common job titles in Charlotte which are Payment Specialist, Supplier, and Customer Care Analyst.
