I don’t think the benefits could be better - unlimited vacation policy, flexibility, 15% 403b contribution, amazing medical (rarely paid anything out of pocket). Simply incredible.

Superb company perks and benefits including unlimited PTO, employer paid insurance, automatic 15% match on 401k, and a culture that supports family (to include 6-month PAID parental leave for both mothers and fathers after a little one comes into the family). Even through the pandemic, the leaders have been mindful to provide substantial stipends for ALL, regardless of title, to support the additional costs of working from home. Furthermore, this organization acknowledges working parents, and specifically publishes guidelines requesting coworkers extend grace to those with interrupting children/animals/family in the background. The Foundation truly sets the tone for being an employer of choice and embracing work/life balance!
