A College Station software company recently landed at the top of the list of the best small companies to work for in Texas.
FrogSlayer, a software development company with slightly more than 15 employees, was chosen as one of Texas Monthly’s Best Companies to Work for in Texas 2014. The annual list is a project of Texas Monthly, the Texas Association of Business, Texas SHRM and the Best Companies Group.
Ross Morel, the president of Frogslayer, said his company did not attend the award ceremony in Austin at the beginning of April, but he and his employees were pleasantly surprised to win in the small business category. The company has been in operation since 2005.
“Probably the biggest thing that makes our environment attractive, especially for the type of people we’re trying to recruit, is the fact that it’s all results only,” Morel said. “That means if you don’t want to come in or need to leave during the day, or even if you’re done with everything for a project, you don’t have to come in, so if you’re three weeks ahead and you just don’t want to come in for three weeks, you can do that.”
Morel said Frogslayer searches for people who can learn and work quickly. The company is selective, though, and only hires about one in 230 applicants.
