Very has been a remote company since before it became normal — 2011, to be exact. We’ve built a collaborative, tight-knit team that thrives, whether we’re hanging out in person at our annual retreat or coordinating work across time zones. The results show that we’re doing something right. In 2020, we were named one of Inc’s Best Workplaces, Parity.org‘s Best Companies for Women to Advance List, and Fatherly’s Best Places to Work for Dads.
Clients like Vizio, Clear, iHeart Radio, Complex Media, Shopkeep, and more come to us for answers to their thorniest questions. We bring them a world-class product team that delivers end-to-end IoT solutions.
Why work at Very?
Our top priorities are our team’s health, happiness, and long-term career growth. What does that mean in practice? We offer up to 21 weeks of maternity leave, 12 weeks of paternity leave, and 12 weeks for adoption or surrogacy. We have a $1,000 office stipend that allows you to make your battle station somewhere you’re excited to work. Very reimburses employees for approved conference registrations, continuing education, professional memberships, etc… We’re a remote-first company, so you can work where you want (in a hammock on the beach, anyone?).
But a healthy company culture isn’t just about perks. It’s about creating an environment where our employees can lead fulfilling lives at work and home. Working overtime for extended periods indicates a fundamental failure in planning or communication. If this happens at Very, it’s a sign that something needs to be reevaluated and corrected. If you’re looking around wondering why people aren’t in “crunch mode,” the answer’s pretty simple. We work hardest at hiring good people, so we want them to stick around and have a good balance between work and the rest of the important stuff in life.
Your contract with Very will be as an independent contractor for an indefinite period.
This type of contract carries some additional responsibilities for you – you’ll have to save some money to take care of taxes and you’ll have to pay for public social security (Health and Pension) out of pocket.
That being said, we’re confident that our competitive compensation and benefits package (see below) will still mean that you are happy with your take-home amount at the end of each month. For more information about Very and the contract type, see here.
