"Happy employees equal happy clients, and vise-versa,” said Exbabylon founder CEO Alex Stanton. "We are confident in our model, commitment to clients and simple, modern solutions that solve complex issues— truly bettering the lives of those we work with.”

Headquartered in Newport, Wash., Exbabylon also operates offices in Sandpoint and Hayden.

Exbabylon is also the largest Apple Consultant Network partner in the Spokane metro region, and the only authorized ACN in North Idaho. Exbabylon’s deep commitment to the Apple and Microsoft ecosystems allows highly effectual solutions that solve for the needs of a modern workforce, company officials said.

Stanton said company officials and employees are thankful to be selected as the top place to work for the second straight year. He added the company sees it as confirmation that “human is greater than tech” works as Exbabylon continue to invest into the North Idaho and Eastern Washington communities.

“When you look at the INW Best Places To Work list these last few years, I’m proud to find multiple Exbabylon clients alongside us— that’s a testament to the aligned cultures of highly successful organizations in our region,” Stanton said. “Just be nice and kind to people.”

Exbabylon continually seeks to provide employees opportunities for professional growth and development. Company-wide efforts to engage employees include weekly team meetings, daily stand-up collaboration sessions and a hybrid work from home model.
