For more than a month we’ve been collecting hundreds of nominations for our 6th Coolest Companies Competition presented by Applause. It’s our way of honoring the most impressive Boston tech companies with the best culture and most interesting day jobs.

Per usual, our judging committee found it near impossible to go from 500+ submissions to only 150 finalists. We did have a couple takeaways in doing so. This city has no shortage of ping pong tables, unlimited vacation, in-office slides and snack walls. Also, Bostonians aim high! From robots to podcasts and VR to cybersecurity, Boston tech leaves no stone unturned.

From now until August 2nd we are officially opening up Reader’s Choice Awards voting. We’ll crown companies this year for five superlatives; Best Perks, Most Re-Tweetable, Most Athletic, Best Office Space, Top Travelers. We will also announce the five All Around Coolest winners chosen by readers’ votes.

Take a look at the finalists below and make sure to grab a ticket to BostonFest on August 9th, at The Lawn on D, to check out the BIG reveal of the top 10 Coolest Companies presented by Applause.
