A great work environment, competitive compensation, choice of hardware/software (Windows, Mac, Linux), good benefits (health, food, commute, sports, 401k, on-site services, etc. etc.), lots of social life/company paid activities (hiking, soccer, skiing/snowboarding). We respect your work-life balance. On top of paid vacation, we are offering personal days. Flexible work schedule, home office any time (but not all the time). And many good things more.Joel test: 11.5
