Sila Inc., a fintech software platform that provides payment infrastructure as a service, today announced that it has earned the distinction of being named one of the 2021 Best Places to Work in Financial Technology by Arizent, publisher of American Banker, The Bond Buyer, National Mortgage News, and other leading business-to-business publications.
“We are very honored to have been recognized in such a way,” says Shamir Karkal, CEO and co-founder of Sila. “Creating a stimulating work environment is a marathon, not a sprint. Everyday actions matter. As the CEO, I am very proud of our team.”
Sila has currently around 43 employees with about half of employees living in Oregon, in and around Portland and Corvallis where the firm has offices. The other half of employees are distributed all over the United States. Being a remote workforce has allowed Sila teams to prioritize their wellness and work/life balance, while staying connected through regular check-ins and virtual team events.
“Study after study shows that happy employees make a difference to a company’s bottom line,” added Marissa Arneson, director of human resources, Sila Inc. “Sila has managed to create an exceptional corporate culture that is inclusive, innovative and professional. And, we are hiring!”

Best Companies Group conducts a simple yet thorough company assessment designed to gather detailed information about a workplace. Employers will complete an in-depth questionnaire and employees will have the opportunity to offer their honest feedback by taking part in a company-wide survey. Both portions of the assessment must be complete in order to be considered for the “best” list. Once both portions of the assessment are complete, Arizent analyzes the data to determine if the organization has what it takes to be the “best.” From there, Arizent will use the data to rank each participating organization.
