Boston Globe: Tamr is Number One Small Company In Boston

There is something special about Tamr. As technologists we focus on things like their ability to help organizations make better decisions through smart, differentiated technologies. Results are what matters in enterprise IT.  The savvy enterprise leader knows this. Really great firms deliver results long term. How can you know if you are dealing with a firm like that? You have to get to know the spirit of their people.

We have found the Tamr team to be mission-focused leaders who really care about customer outcomes. And on top of that they are great people. So we were so excited to learn that the Boston Globe has just awarded Tamr with the prestigious selection of Number One Small Company in Boston.

From the Boston Globe:

At Tamr, employees invariably have to stop and think when asked their job titles. The hesitation, they explain, comes from the company’s focus on what its workers do rather than on their particular positions. When chief executive Andy Palmer launched the Cambridge database cleanup and unification company in 2014, he wanted to create a meritocracy, not a rigid hierarchy. Today, this philosophy is part of every decision made at Tamr, Palmer says.

Thoughts from the top: “The role of a manager is to work for the people who work for them,” Palmer says.

Congrats Tamr!
