Our perks & benefits
We support our team personally and professionally by creating a workplace that’s both stimulating and enjoyable.
Flexa-certified perks and benefits.
We support our team both personally and professionally with a remote-first company policy, as well as offering creativity-stimulating, dog-friendly office environments for those who prefer a hybrid approach. That also means that we don’t limit our team to people based in the UK. In fact, we have a presence in Bulgaria, Boston and beyond!
Our benefits aren’t put in place to make us look good, but to make a genuine difference to people’s day-to-day lives – both during and outside of work hours.
Although different benefits apply to our international teams, for our UK-based team we offer 28 days of holiday plus bank holidays. Work-life balance is very important to refresh and ensure you are fully rested.
We understand that not one approach fits everyone. Whether they are working from the office or home, we fully support our team in whichever way they prefer to work.
Our parental policy offers enhanced maternity, paternity and adoption pay above the statutory amount. This encourages new parents to take more time off work to bond with their children and be with their families.
It’s important that people have the insight and education to overcome their financial concerns. Bippit is the UK’s #1 provider of professional financial coaching and gives our team access to dedicated support from qualified experts.
The wellbeing budget is for everyone to spend on whatever helps them relax, refresh and switch off. Our team’s wellbeing days and budget could be used for anything from hobbies to counselling, physical activity, holistic therapies, nutrition, fertility support or female health.
The Bupa cash plan covers UK employees claiming cashback for many common health expenses, including dental, optical and prescription charges.
We encourage continuous learning and development. Each team member has a wellbeing budget plus 4 wellbeing days which renew every year to help them grow, whether that’s used for attending conferences, workshops or training courses relating to your role.
As well as pay day socials each month, we like to celebrate important cultural milestones here at the lab. From sip ‘n’ paint to pumpkin-carving, boardgame nights and pancake-making, we host a range of laidback and enjoyable social events for our hedgehogs.
Everyone has the chance to support a cause they’re passionate about. The team is entitled to one day off per year for a volunteering cause of their choice.
All current employees are encouraged to help with the recruiting process by recommending potential candidates to the People team.
All our staff are entitled to the cycle to work scheme to save money and spread the cost on a new bike and accessories.
Each team member is provided with a brand new Apple Mac as part of their onboarding at the lab. All equipment is set-up and provided before starting.
Diversity & inclusion.
We’re a family-friendly company backed by enhanced parental and adoption policies. And we never discriminate based on race, colour, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, nationality, genetics, disability or age.
From menopausal support to neurodiversity adjustments, our rainbow hogs and Inclusion Cheerleaders – we’ll continue to foster an open, caring, empathetic and supportive environment where everyone’s free to let their authentic selves shine.
Mental health support.
Mental health is paramount to us. Our partner, Spill, is a Slack-integrated therapy app available to all our staff at no extra cost. With a current 86% FlexScore®, we’re learning as we go. By listening to our team and always asking for feedback, we can continue to improve and offer a working environment worthy of attracting the most creative and dedicated people in technology.
