Employer Summary

We’re proud of our benefits, because unlike some companies, they’re actually beneficial.

Medical – Full coverage options, and includes an employer-funded account designed to help you pay for uncovered, out-of-pocket healthcare expenses. Like deductibles. (Yes, really.)

Perks – Competitive salaries, ample vacation, 401(k) match, casual dress code, open office, beans bags, ping pong, full kitchen, and more.

Free food – Options include breakfast, weekly lunches, coffee (regular, espresso, lattes, cold brew), fresh fruit, healthy & sweet packaged snacks, and a constantly stocked fridge.

Location – The northeast corner of Assembly Row, with great water views, restaurants, cafes, bars, shopping, movie complex, bike and running paths, and easy access to mass transportation or parking.

Wellness reimbursement – Local gyms offer us deals periodically, but if you want to stick with your own place, we’ll get you 3 months or 20 classes free. We also offer a $75 reinburment toward any fitness/sports appreal or euqiptment.

Professional development – Development opportunities are available to all employees through our own internal learning portal for software training.

Commuter help – We all need to get here from somewhere. So you can take advantage of our pre-tax commuter benefits program, whether it’s local parking or taking the train.

Its better than people realize. Had a sickness in the family and the copays and medication was way lower than Ive had in the past. 401K is there but I dont think many people take advantage of it

Current Employee

Health insurance is good. There's a great (additional $30) option that lets you go to most gyms. 401(k) matches 50% but only up to 6%, so that could be better. Would be nice to also see tuition reimbursement.

Best: Snacks, Friday lunch, the PTO hours, athletic reimbursement. Bad: Salary and commission.

Standard benefits and perks. Most health plans have a deductible, but what stands out with SmartBear is that they cover that deductible! We also get to buy new sneakers every year which SmartBear covers as well.

They offered a very competitive benefits package and covered a majority of the healthcare costs.

No 401k match and health insurance was mediocre.

SmartBear response

Thank you for your review. I’m sorry to hear that our benefits package wasn’t conveyed correctly to you. SmartBear has a 401(k) match of 50% up to 6% of your salary, with no waiting period. As for our health insurance, we try to make our package as comprehensive and competitive as possible, but we are always taking suggestions on how to improve it.

After 5 years one accrues at the rate of 2.08 PTO days per month.
