What makes your company unique?
At Akamai, we believe in giving back to the communities where we work and live. The Akamai Foundation is dedicated to encouraging the next generation of technology innovators by supporting STEM education, with a focus on the pursuit of excellence in mathematics in grades K-12. Grants focus on equal access to quality STEM education with grants supporting programs designed to attract more diversity to the technology industry. In addition, the Akamai Foundation provides disaster resilience, relief and humanitarian aid globally; and enables volunteerism by connecting employees to the communities in which Akamai operates.
Sustainability is also key to our growth. We focus on software and hardware efficiencies, responsible e-waste management, and the use of attested renewable energy wherever possible, in partnership with data center providers. Akamai also secures net-new renewable power to offset our global electricity load. We are committed to using all resources as efficiently as possible.
