    • Freedom to work with modern technologies in a greenfield environment. We care that you get your work done, but you will get to help decide on how we can leverage modern technologies to solve our challenges
    • Unlimited time off. No one is tracking your time here. You'll be treated like the professional we know you are and left to manage your own time and work load
    • Four months of parental leave. We want new moms and dads to have an opportunity to tend to their new or growing family
    • Nice perks like 401(k) with generous company match, Toyota vehicle discount, gym membership reimbursement, game rooms, free food, team activities and happy hours
