Next Jump – Why Work For Us?


Become a better person as a result of where you work. We use business as a platform to build people of higher character. 

Better Me: We believe that in order to make the world a better place, you first need to focus on bettering yourself. Next Jumpers work on cultural initiatives designed as safe places where we can practice to improve areas where we struggle both personally and professionally, such as some of the examples below:

10x: Next Jumpers present on their contributions to revenue and culture. Presenters receive on-the-spot coaching from our executives, and the entire company participates.

Talking Partners: Next Jumpers are paired off and meet daily. These partners develop relationships of trust and help each other grow through advice and support.

Next Jump has been recognized by the Harvard Business Review of one of the 3 companies in the world specifically designed to help their people grow. 


Better You: As we grow, we become better equipped to better help our clients and community. At Next Jump, we call this Better You, and it's built into our DNA as a company. Some Better You initiative examples:

Code for a Cause: The best way to give back to the community is by sharing in your area of expertise. Next Jumpers are given two full weeks to work on projects for a non-profit organization.

Adopt a Non-profit: Imagine if every company gave office space to a non-profit for $1 a year. Next Jump provides full access to our office and perks to our adopted non-profits.

Next Jump Academy: We're changing the world by changing workplace culture and we're sharing how we do it with interested executives and heads of HR of other companies. Past Academy participants have included Zappos and Whole Foods. 

Next Jump helps take care of your employees and their families by offering exclusive employee pricing and rewards on the things they care about most.

We manage exclusive perks, benefits, rewards and recognition for over 70% of the Fortune 1000. Working with thousands of benefits departments worldwide lets us pinpoint the biggest challenges companies are facing and share the best solutions for all. 

Our ONECart technology lets users purchase from a variety of merchants in a single transaction. 


SUPER SATURDAY

Next Jump's full day recruiting event. It's a two way street: we want you to know if we're the right fit for you and we'd like to see if you're the right fit for us.

    I have been working at Next Jump full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    • People are really smart and care about each other.
    • I genuinely have a lot of fun with the people I work with and the work is not boring.
    • I have stayed for the tremendous growth opportunities and countless times the company has personally helped me beyond what a normal company would do.
    • The recruiting process continues to bring in talented, humble and coachable new team members as the company grows and as a more senior person - that is really rewarding and fun to build teams.
    • Diversity in people (not all white dudes).
    • Good leadership of the Co-CEOs - it's a very transparent company, and the evolution of their personal leadership style is inspirational.

    Cons

    • If you want to just do your job - this is not the place for you. You will be stretched in unexpected ways, and ways that may sting for a while (direct feedback), and sometimes annoying but minor ways (like running to answer the door because there is no receptionist and the doorbell keeps ringing). You can own a lot of things and have a lot of responsibility – but can sometimes feel like you’re not making progress on any one thing and requires constant prioritization and communication.
    • The work hours are much better than even a few years ago as the company is maturing and ppl having families - but it's not a norm to leave at 5 if that is an important criteria for you.
    • It's a pretty open company and there isn’t anything like “you can’t bring that up at work” – it’s not a con, but that isn’t for everyone.
