The compensation for this full-time position in the US is $95,000.00 - $120,000.00 + discretionary bonus.

As a member of the FAMily, you'll be eligible to participate in our amazing benefits package.
First and foremost, we value work-life balance, so you'll receive vacation and sick time to use as needed. We also offer personal holidays, because everyone needs a break now and then. And in light of the current pandemic, we've added COVID time off to give you the opportunity to rest and recharge. Additionally, our office is closed on weekends and after 6:30 PM during the week, so you can have some quality time with friends and family.
But it's not all about time off. We also prioritize the health and well-being of our employees, which is why we offer comprehensive mental health services through Talkspace. And for physical health, we provide Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance coverage for medical (PPO and EPO), as well as UNUM dental and vision insurance. Plus, we've got you covered with company-paid life and short/long-term disability insurance. And if you're looking to save for the future, our 401k plan has matching and immediate vesting.
But wait, there's more! As a member of the FAMily, you'll also have access to Nationwide Pet Insurance and a variety of UNUM supplemental insurance policies, including life, critical illness, accident, and hospital coverage. And if you have medical or dependent expenses, you can use our flexible spending accounts to offset the cost.
But that's not all. We also offer an onsite gym with instructor-led workout classes, a stocked Everytable fridge, and of course, free Starbucks coffee to help fuel your workday.
