Job Hunting in North Carolina? Discover 10 Companies Women Love

And find out which ones are hiring right now

Good news for the Tar Heel State! In 2020, North Carolina’s two largest hubs, Charlotte and Raleigh-Durham, were among the 15 cities with the highest number of hires and average open jobs in the country. That means, in addition to the state’s other venerable accolades—the third largest U.S. banking city, the country’s largest private residence, two highly contested barbecue styles, the filming location for both Dirty Dancing and The Last of the Mohicans, and, on average, 213 glorious sunny days a year—NC is also a place where people want to live and work. In fact, the state boasts about 110,000 new residents every year, the majority of them flocking to bank-centric Charlotte and the techie Triangle region.

Full disclosure: InHerSight is among those Triangle converts. We’ve been in Durham since 2015, and we love it. Clearly. But we also work with companies in our area or just down I-85 that offer stellar benefits amid these subjectively perfect lifestyle conditions.

These 10 InHerSight partners are based in Raleigh-Durham and Charlotte, and more good news—they all want to move the needle for gender diversity.

Companies based in the Raleigh-Durham (Triangle) region

1. Adwerx

Highest-rated InHerSight metrics

The People You Work With, Social Activities and Environment, Paid Time Off

About this partner

One of Adwerx’s core values is “We leave a positive wake,” meaning they “inspire teammates by working hard, staying humble, and making those around us shine.” You can see that spirit reflected in the company’s scores, where they’ve earned 4.0 stars for The People You Work With and 3.8 for Social Activities and Environment. The Durham-based firm spun out of ReverbNation in 2013 and has since been focused on providing digital marketing tools that are effective and accessible to everyone.

4. The Looma Project

Highest-rated InHerSight metrics

Ability to Telecommute, Employer Resources, The People You Work With

About this partner

The Looma Project, a marketing and advertising company, produces product videos for grocery stores to give certain goods that farmers market feel. Think: a short video showing how Josh wines come to fruition positioned next to the Josh wines display. We think this very satisfied rater explains the company’s culture best: “Looma needs to continue growing into all of these areas as an early-stage company, but I'm encouraged by the commitment leadership demonstrates toward creating a welcoming and equitable workplace.”

5. New Kind

About this partner

New Kind is new to the InHerSight platform, so they don’t have ratings just yet. But what’s interesting about partnering with us during a pre-review period is that it shows a company is open to feedback employees and being transparent themselves—New Kind definitely is both of those things. A brand strategy and marketing firm that works with B2B tech companies, this org is 57 percent women and has 43 percent of leadership positions filled by women.
