Great Benefits ? We?re as good, or better than most companies our size.
Free onsite snacks and drinks; Free Friday lunches ? The food comes to you so that you write lots and lots of good code (at least we?re honest).
Bonuses 2x per year and Stock Options ? Because you like to be rewarded and recognized for your hard work.
Open Ended Vacation Policy ? You?re an adult and can manage your own vacation time. Work hard; play hard, and don?t bother counting the days.
Family ? We don?t believe that you should miss your child?s play because you have to attend a meeting. The CEO even sends a handwritten card and gift to your child on their special day. How many CEO?s do that?
