What they do: Ocrolus helps businesses modernize their back office with an AI-powered automation platform that analyzes documents — like pay stubs, bank statements and tax forms — with over 99-percent accuracy.


Coolest perks: At Ocrolus, we strive to empower our employees to lead the lifestyles they want, both inside and outside the office. Inside the office, Ocrolus offers customizable catered lunches, a full snack bar, periodic massages, and shortened hours during the summer. Outside the office perks include subsidized transportation, gym membership, and Citi Bike reimbursements. Our unlimited vacation and work from home policies, plus perks such as three months paid maternity and paternity leave, enable our employees to do their jobs without sacrificing the things that matter most to them.

 “Our first office space in Long Island was connected to a barbershop and a store for home-brew beer hobbyists,” said VP of Engineering Zoheb Sait. “Last month, we closed our Series B round with $24 million in new funding. We’ve long since moved out of that $15-a-cut plaza into an office that’s around the corner from the New York Stock Exchange. But the tight-knit community that we formed in the first lean days of our company still persists. Some things never change. Although, these days, nobody accidentally wanders into our office looking for a haircut.”

What they do: Zipari’s customer experience and CRM products are designed to streamline and improve interactions between health insurance carriers and their customers. 


Coolest perks: Zipari aims to make their team’s time in the office as enjoyable as possible — and they’ve got the perks to prove it. The company provides monthly unlimited MetroCards, generous vacation and leave policies and plenty of snacks. In fact, they keep a Slack channel open for the team to suggest new snacks they’d like to see around the office. Zipari knows company culture can be a pretty important perk too, which is why they work hard to foster a collaborative environment where everyone is encouraged to contribute their ideas and talents.

“As a female engineer by training, I’m very excited that Zipari is actively looking to bridge the gender gap in engineering,” said VP of Customer Engagement Products Jyoti Mokal. “We noticed the imbalance in female engineering candidates applying to our jobs and discussed solutions with our executive team. We’ve taken a few steps to get to the root of the issue, including attending job fairs for female engineers and working with companies like Tech Ladies, which is dedicated to connecting us with more female engineers. A lot of people are surprised by the fact that we have a culture committee. We have had this committee since there were 15 of us. We have regular check-ins with people to understand how they are doing, what’s working, what’s not working and what improvements we can make as a company to make this a better place.”

Coolest perks: Snap understands the importance of work-life balance — particularly for those with families — and great perks are one way they support that. Employees enjoy benefits like unlimited PTO and family-friendly events like Bring Your Kids to Work Day and the company’s Summer Pier Party in LA. They also help people who want to start families with stand-out perks like surrogacy and adoption assistance.

“Our Council program — small gatherings of people from different teams that bring us together for conversation, fun activities and more — is a unique part of Snap’s culture, and it's even integrated into our onboarding program,” said Lead Business Recruiter Ed Boyd. “Council fosters this amazing environment of openness and transparency in a safe space. I was surprised by the program but also by how much I love it! I've had the opportunity to learn about my colleagues on a deeper level which makes connections so much stronger.”

What they do: Bread’s fintech platform helps retailers drive sales and empowers customers by offering flexible pay-over-time solutions that make larger purchases more affordable. 


Coolest perks: At this NYC startup, it’s not just about making bread. They offer some pretty unique perks, too. From day one, each team member gets “desk credit” to create their own custom desk setup that helps them do their best work. Through the company’s “BreadFit” wellness program, employees can also take advantage of perks like monthly guided meditations, bi-monthly yoga classes and bi-monthly chair massages.


What's one thing about your company that would surprise a lot of people? 

“If you're wondering if we have bread in the office all of the time, yes, we do,” said Sales Operations Manager Kristin Fretz. “Our conference rooms are also named after different types of bread, such as Pita, Sourdough and Baguette. It's a small detail that is one of many ways Bread's strong culture and values are built into every aspect of the company.”
