Our benefit offerings vary by country and these described below are representative of the perks offered to our U.S. employees.  However, our flexible work happy environment transcends borders!

bullet Flexible Work Environment - For most positions, you control where and how the work gets done. Of course, there are some jobs that do require more structure, particularly those that directly interface with our customers, but our overall philosophy is that you control your work dynamics, the results are what matter most.
bullet Flexible Office Environment - All of our offices have an informal, casual environment. You choose the appropriate attire. It's not uncommon to see your coworkers in jeans, tennis shoes, shorts, or flip flops while playing foosball, darts, or other activities. For those of you that work from home, feel free to wear your jammies!
bullet Flexible Paid Time Off - Flexible, because you decide how much PTO time you use each year, not the company. Take as much as you like, just ensure your job gets done and your customers, coworkers and managers are not negatively impacted - all without the formality of accruals and tracking!
