Some super things about working here

Zero commute time

The only traffic you’ll ever get stuck in is a series of tubes.

Six weeks paid vacation

With one month of personal time off plus ten paid holidays per year, you can finally test that model rocket.

Really good health insurance

Once our fountain of youth is finished, we hope to save a bundle on healthcare.

401(k) with matching contributions

Our plan administrator thought we were nuts to do a match. He also thought he was a squirrel. Kinda awkward.

Flexible spending account

We’re not saying you’re accident-prone, but we do want to make sure all those first aid kits won’t lead to bankruptcy.

Dental discounts

With all the sweet things you’ll be doing, our dental plan makes sure the sugar won’t rot your teeth.

Weird facial hair? Sure!

Our dress code is whatever you can stand to look at on yourself in the mirror.

Flexible hours

You’re the boss of your time. For your own sake, I hope you’re not a bad boss.

Do what you love

We are, of course, referring to developing amazing Web apps. We don’t really need a lepidopterist.

A family you’ll actually want to talk to

With their spectacular wit, intellect, and good looks, SitePenners are one of the best reasons to work here.
