Cockroach Labs Benefits Overview

Flexible Working: You are free to arrange your work schedule to meet your individual circumstances.

Free Fridays: One day a week, focus on what drives and motivates you outside of your core work responsibilities. Dedicate time to a community project. Spend a day at home with the kids.

 and Outings: Once a quarter we enjoy some downtime as a team, whether it’s catching the latest blockbuster, picnicking in Central Park, or strolling through a museum for inspiration.

Team Trips: Twice a year we voyage beyond Manhattan’s shores. These might be trips to the Caribbean or to the mountains. The connections made in these environments build friendships and deepen the ties which make working together fun and productive.

Flexible Time Off: We care about productivity, not face time. Take time off when you need it.

Learning is Good: We provide $1500 annually to support learning and development through workshops, conferences, and networking events.
