Glitch is for everyone, and we’re focused on helping millions of people (not just professional coders) rediscover the fun parts of the internet with our friendly community of creators. It’s an ambitious undertaking for our small team, so we’re hoping you can help us!

Open Positions

All Benefits, No Perks

The compensation and benefits package at Glitch is thoughtfully designed to implement our core values - to put people first.

  • Comprehensive health care for you and your family with 100% of premiums paid for by Glitch.

  • 20 vacation days each year - and encouragement from your coworkers to use them!

  • Unlimited sick days, plus additional caretaker days for when a family member is sick. We don't think you should have to use vacation time for these unexpected circumstances.

  • Fully paid parental leave of up to 16 weeks, with the option to work part-time or with more flex-time upon returning to work.

  • 401(k) retirement plan with a matching plan (Glitch will match the first 3% of contributions at 100% and the next 2% of contributions at 50%).

  • Monthly wellness stipend of $150 that can be used for a gym membership, nutrition counseling, yoga or meditation classes, or any other wellness activity of your choice.

  • A learning and development budget of $3,500 along with 3 conference days annually. We also offer tuition reimbursement.

  • Your choice of technical set up and equipment. Remote workers receive a $100 monthly stipend toward home office expenses.

  • All NYC employees receive a free unlimited monthly MetroCard & lunch every day.

Working at Glitch

Here are a few things you won't find at most other companies:

  • No endless meetings. We don't have very many meetings, but when we do, they're well-organized with a specific agenda. Every meeting is remote-first, with every person in the meeting joining on video chat — even if they're based in our NYC headquarters. That way, nobody is stuck feeling disconnected or forgotten. Each person on the team takes turns keeping notes because we don't want women or other underrepresented team members to feel unduly obligated to handle such tasks, and every meeting with more than 2 people has notes shared to the entire company so that everyone knows what's going on.

  • Almost no email. Most people at Glitch get fewer than a dozen email messages in a week from their coworkers. We use email for especially urgent company-wide alerts, and to work with people at other companies. For ordinary chat, we prefer to use Slack, and for lengthier conversations, we write out our ideas in full and share them for feedback and comment. It's common for people to come to work in the morning at Glitch and have no new emails in their inbox, and Inbox Zero is common enough that nobody even talks about it.

  • We respect working hours. Our office is usually empty by 6pm or earlier each day, and remote workers leave their home offices on the same schedule, too. At Glitch, your coworkers won't even @ mention you in Slack when it's outside of working hours, and if something is shared during non-work times, there's no expectation that you'll respond until you're back at work. There are exceptions for roles where people are on-call, or special cases like events or unusual circumstances, but on a day-to-day basis, we are enormously productive by letting people live their lives and have their downtime.

  • Comprehensive healthcare. From day one, we've offered complete health insurance for every employee. We set you up with great health insurance with a really high deductible — and then we pay the entire deductible for you. And of course, we offer unlimited sick days and have generous policies if you need to take care of a sick family member, too.

  • Our inclusion efforts aren't just a bunch of platitudes. Like most tech companies that have been around for two decades, we used to be a really homogenous place. Unlike most tech companies, we admit that we screwed up and we're not making any excuses for it. Instead, we're making real changes to build a more inclusive culture. It starts from the top — we have a CEO who's been one of the most prominent and vocal advocates for underrepresented workers in tech, and we've changed everything from our recruiting and ally skills training to the way we design our products, all with a goal of ensuring we're a place that's welcoming and supportive to everyone. Most other tech companies seem to be full of everything from daily microaggressions to overt discrimination, and we're committed to Glitch being a respite from those stresses.

  • We put the important stuff in writing. When new issues impacting employees emerge, we don't just say “trust me, it’ll be okay.” Taking care of employees and protecting workers means putting down our commitments to them and their families in writing. Like our Climate Leave policy, for example.

  • We've built a social platform on the Internet that will never tolerate hate speech. This isn't actually complicated.

Glitch Handbook

If you want a more in-depth look at how our company runs day-to-day, we encourage to take a look at our employee handbook. You can find out exactly what it's like working at Glitch: this is the actual handbook we use to help new employees get up to speed and what our employees refer to every day when they want to know about company policies. We place a very high value on honesty and transparency and want every candidate to be confident that Glitch is the right place to be!
