We standardize our pay, meaning we pay for the role and level, not for any particular individual’s ability to interview or negotiate well.

  • Unlimited PTO

All regular salaried team members enjoy unlimited PTO. We want team members to grow with us and a big part of that is making sure our team has the opportunity to rest and recharge. We also observe 12 holidays every year.
