Does DigitalOcean offer unlimited time off?

Pros

The atmosphere is very casual and laid back, like you'd expect from a tech company. The people are fantastic - hardworking, super knowledgeable, and all are chill and welcoming. There's a lot of emphasis on communication and how it can be improved throughout the company and a lot of work is put into ensuring the employees as well as the customers feel supported, happy, and valued. Also, free lunch and unlimited vacation.

Cons

The company is growing VERY quickly and there has been some struggle to accommodate the growing number of employees/adjust processes around a larger team. I think this is a growing pain and will resolve itself, but the days of small tech startup life are definitely behind DigitalOcean.

Also, free lunch and unlimited vacation.

What is paid time off like at DigitalOcean?

Pros

I worked in tech for years, but went fully freelance after hitting a window of burnout (following a depletion of work/life balance, wearing all the hats, and having no true time off to travel). I was self-employed for more than two years after that and established the geographic independence I'd long dreamed of when I was presented with an opportunity at DO. But, I was hesitant to accept a full-time offer with a tech company. I didn't want to burn out again. After talking to countless folks across various teams, the sense of happiness and work/life balance was evident. And the role could be remote. So I accepted. Since starting, I have nothing but wonderful things to say about DigitalOcean: — a great salary — amazing benefits (healthcare, 401K, stock options, unlimited PTO, wellness stipend) — wonderful perks for remote employees (coffee/snack deliveries, the ability to work in NYC if you'd like, corporate apartments for those visits, internet/coworking reimbursement) — the ability to attend one conference a year, or continue your education with a learning stipend — a very supportive and comprehensive onboarding process — teams that truly care about your happiness and well-being — a Slack channel for the digital nomads, dog lovers, and even us crystal freaks — an amazing office in NYC (kombucha on tap, incredible views of the city, a space for yoga) — management that values your work, dreams, and wellness

Cons

I can't think of a single thing.

— amazing benefits (healthcare, 401K, stock options, unlimited PTO, wellness stipend)
