G5 Loves the Outside (and Outside Magazine Loves Us)


We don't get to toot our horn as often as we'd like but today, G5 has some great news we're happy to share with the world.

Outside Magazine has named us to their 50 Best Places to Work in America list.

Why? We would say why not.

The company goes out of its way to make sure we play as hard as we work. Examples include shortened work hours on Fridays during the summer months, paid participation in various athletic events, flex time for powder ski days, work hours devoted to volunteer time for charitable organizations and company-supplemented gym memberships.

When we say we work hard and play hard together, we mean it.

Our CEO Dan Hobin said it best: “Our employees are committed to delivering the best software platform and services in the marketplace. But they’re also committed to passions outside the company – family, friends, outdoor activities, the community and environmental causes.”

And team members agree.

"Flexibility and respect for family and lifestyle played a strong role in my decision to join the G5 team,” said Aaron Warnock, Director of Product Mangement. "G5 is a company that wow-ed me with their unique local businesses marketing platform and then won me with corporate values that highlight life-work balance."

A debt of gratitude is also due to our partner in playing: beautiful Bend, Oregon – where we all live, and work.

This is such a great spot that another company here in town, Ruffwear, is also on the list. Congratulations Ruffwear!
