Perks of the Job

🏠  Fully remote work setup

We’re a remote-first company and thrive on this working dynamic. When the pandemic concludes, we’ll still be mostly remote, with occasional in-person gatherings. No need to endure Metro Manila traffic, or long lines at ATMs during payday... because that’s literally one of the things we're solving!

🍃  Minimum and unlimited paid time off + HMO

Our team works hard which is why it’s important to take time off to rest and energize. Or sometimes, you need that quick trip to the doctor (or the vet). Either way, you get full HMO and unlimited paid vacation days with a MINIMUM days off requirement.

🚀  Grow with a kickass team

We’re a company that knows how to build great customer-centric products. That means we value quality work, creativity, collaboration, and continuous growth. We make sure that our team members feel challenged and valued while continuously building on themselves and their careers.

📈  Employee Stock options

While a standard in Silicon Valley, we’re one of the very few companies in the Philippines that want you to own a part of the company. This way, we all win together.

🐈 We have team pets!

Pets are a vital part of the team. We love animals, and have a variety of them show up during our meetings and grace us with their cuteness. Say hello to the NextPets!

🍟  Foodie Fridays, equipment, and allowances

You get Foodie Friday vouchers to enjoy with the rest of the team, as well as equipment and wifi allowance to help you do your best and tastiest work. Are you #teamcrispyfries or #teamsoggyfries?
