What you’ll get

⚖️  Work-life Balance: We’re all looking to strike the right work-life balance so as a remote-first company, you’re able to work flexibly from home or our co-working space in New York City. We also offer a substantial vacation package in addition to federal holidays, which you can switch to any day of your choosing.  We also offer an Adjusted Hours initiative where on every Friday, every Prolifico ends work 2 hours earlier than usual. 🏡 Family Life: We offer generous maternity, paternity and shared parental leave. Need to pick your child up from school? No problem. Our flexible working gives you the childcare flexibility you need.  🧘 Well-being: We care deeply about our employees well-being so that’s why we offer healthcare/medical insurance including vision and dental. We also offer a 401(k) and a taxable monthly remote stipend of $150 that you can spend on whatever improves your wellness and remote working experience. 

Having a healthy working environment is crucial and so we offer a $1,000 home office budget when you start and a $200 annual top-up. Every new joiner also receives an Apple laptop.

📚 Learn & Grow: Development is important to us and we want to give all our employees the opportunity to learn. We offer a $1,000 yearly budget for education, growth and training to use at your discretion. There are also many personal growth and career progression opportunities available at Prolific, as well as mentoring. 💙 Culture: We’re a friendly bunch at Prolific; open, transparent and inclusive. Although we’re a remote-first company, we still love to hang out with each other so we run collaborative company-wide meets up and team socials (both virtually and in-person), all paid for.  Alongside this, we offer a yearly budget for discretionary team meet-ups that cover travel, food and accommodation. 

🌳 Carbon Offset: As a business, we’re also committed to carbon offsetting so each month we donate money in your name to plant trees. Being a remote-first company means we’re doing our bit to offset travel as well!
