    I have been working at Lithium Technologies full-time (Less than a year)


    Technology stack is modern, common and well-designed.
    Work/life balance is fantastic and the employees are friendly and inviting.
    Outstanding career development through weekly new-hire presentations about a range of topics ranging from career choices to technology-centric discussions.
    New office in Austin is very nice. Amenities such as a private gym, showers, and kitchen that is kept well stocked multiple times a week.
    Catered meals twice a week, personal trainer three times a week. Weekly chair massages from a masseuse.
    Great benefits package, all standard. $50 monthly stipend towards fitness related expenses.
    Employees are given freedom to work from home as long as the job gets done.


    There's a bit of a disconnect between Austin and San Francisco where the HQ is located.
    Lithium has been acquired by Vista Equity, which means there's less control over major decisions. This has yet to become an issue but it's definitely something to consider.
    The only downside to the benefits is no 401k matching, but this is offset by other benefits honestly.
