It’s official! Zappos.com made FORTUNE MAGAZINE’s “100 Best Companies To Work For” list for 2009 – and we’re actually mentioned on the cover!
To give a little bit of history, FORTUNE puts out this high profile list every year. Making this list was one of the most important goals that we set for ourselves during the early days of Zappos, and we’re all super excited to show up on the list for the first time in our company’s history! To qualify, a company has to be at least 7 years old and have at least 1000 employees. We came in at #23 this year, making us the highest ranking newcomer for 2009.

Thank you EVERYONE for helping shape the Zappos culture into what it is today. It’s hard to believe that within a 30 day period, we hit $1 billion in gross merchandise sales AND finally made FORTUNE’s list of “100 Best Companies To Work For”! We’ll be coming up with a special commemorative t-shirt celebrating both over the next few weeks!
