Compensation and Benefits

  • Salary—Hourly

  • Hours—20-40 hours/week with flexible scheduling.

  • Fun—Millions of people go to work, punch the clock from 8 to 5 and hate every moment of it—that’s not the case here. We have an indoor slide, a game room that includes shuffleboard, a pool table, foosball, a Ping Pong table and more. To put it mildly, we’re serious about having fun.

  • Miscellaneous Benefits—Not all benefits are about the Benjamins, baby. Some of the things you’ll enjoy while working here include unlimited soda, tea and beer (only if you’re of age of course). And don’t worry about your duds—business-casual is the dress code here. Still looking to make your cubicle-shackled friends jealous of your new gig? Our company-wide social and recreational activities are sure to do just that.
