Why Work at Very?
The health, happiness and long-term career growth of our team is a top priority. What does that mean in practice? We offer up to 21 weeks of maternity leave, 12 weeks of paternity leave, and 12 weeks for adoption or surrogacy. We have a $1,000 office stipend which allows you to make your battlestation somewhere you’re excited to work. Each employee will be reimbursed for approved conference registrations, continuing education, professional memberships, etc... We're a remote-first company, so you can work where you want (in a hammock on the beach, anyone?).
But a healthy company culture isn't just about perks. It's about creating an environment where our employees can lead fulfilling lives, both at work and at home. Working overtime for extended periods indicates a fundamental failure in planning or communication. If this happens at Very, it’s a sign that something needs to be reevaluated and corrected. If you’re looking around wondering why people aren’t in “crunch mode,” the answer’s pretty simple. The thing we work hardest at is hiring good people, so we want them to stick around and have a good balance between work and the rest of the important stuff in life.
How You’ll Be Compensated
We believe in a transparent, fair compensation structure and have developed our own open salary formula. Depending on your skill and experience, you can expect your base compensation to be somewhere between $10,000-$13,000 USD upon joining the company. We also offer performance bonuses, a generous maternity/paternity leave policy, and numerous other employee benefits (including eliminating the stress and cost of commuting each day),
We Fully Embrace Working Remotely
We are best practitioners of the remote-first movement and believe a great team shouldn’t be restricted by geography as long as applicants are willing to standardize their work day around a standard US time zone.
How We Operate
We are believers in transparency and openness. In terms of organizational structure and governance, we are a holacracy. It’s worked pretty well for us the last few years. We believe in hiring capable, responsible professionals. We don’t micromanage and trust everyone to work hard, experiment, learn from their mistakes, and contribute to each other and the company in a sustainable manner. We have no venture funding or external investors, which affords us the ability to be nimble and run our company in the best interest of our team as a whole.
