Virtualitics, a Pasadena-based AI and data exploration company, has been named one of the best Los Angeles startups to work for on Built In’s 2023 Best Places to Work List.

“Virtualitics takes pride in being a place our employees are proud to call home,” Michael Amori, CEO and co-founder of Virtualitics, said. “This recognition in particular means a lot because of its focus on companies that truly value their employees. Our team is the backbone of our work and we are thoughtful about cultivating desirable work conditions for them.”

Built In is an online community for national startups and tech companies. Each year, Built In recognizes companies of all sizes, honoring both remote-first employers and companies in large tech markets across the country.

Built In’s annual Best Places to Work List is developed with an algorithm created using company data about compensation and benefits. The list also takes into account remote and flexible work opportunities, programs for DEI and company culture.

“It’s my honor to congratulate this year’s Best Places to Work winners,” Sheridan Orr, Chief Marketing Officer at Built In, said. “These exemplary companies understand their people are their most valuable asset, and they’ve stepped up to meet the modern professional’s new expectations, including the desire to work for companies that deliver purpose, growth and inclusion. These winners set the stage for a human-centered future of work, and we can’t wait to see that future unfold.”

This is not Virtualitics’ first time being recognized on Built In’s Best Places to Work List. 

Last year, it was named one of the 100 Best Places to Work and one of the Top 50 Best Small Companies To Work for in Los Angeles last year.

Last November, the Air Force Global Strike Command (AFGSC), a major command of the U.S. Air Force, expanded its partnership with Virtualitics to establish a Center of Excellence and deliver AI-enabled software solutions for the bomber and missile weapon systems to increase aircraft availability and mission readiness.

The USAF has been working to improve mission-capable rates, the principal metric that indicates the health and readiness of an aircraft fleet. AFGSC will deploy AI to predict aircraft failure with Virtualitics. 

Technicians are matched to the right job and can proactively address critical issues during routine maintenance and avoid unplanned downtime while keeping mission-critical aircraft airworthy through Virtualitics.

Amori, the founder of Virtualitics, has a MBA in finance from Harvard Business School and obtained a MS in Applied Physics from Caltech. Before co-founding Virtualitics, Amori was Managing Director at Deutsche Bank for over seven years, starting and heading a data-driven trading desk in London, New York, and India focused on the insurance and pensions markets.

“This recognition means a lot to me and I’m extremely proud of the culture that we have built here at Virtualitics, Inc.,” Amori said in response to Built In’s recognition of the firm.
