We have paid vacation (sick time till 1 yr of employment), health, vision & dental, and a 401k or IRA contribution. If you have to relocate, talk to us and we’ll see how we can help. Bonuses are given based on performance, quarterly if things are going well, and can be up to 10% of what folks make in a year. We offer a somewhat flexible daytime schedule with 15 min breaks.
