Company Benefits Highlights

  • Capless PTO | Sustained growth is impossible without the sustained tenure of our staff; we don’t measure people by how many hours they work, nor do we aspire to achieve short-term growth at the expense of burning anyone out. Rather, we do what we can to help our folks find work-life balance via a “take what you need” PTO policy that is offered to each and every team member from Day 1.
  • Remote-First Culture | A lot has changed in the world over the last couple of years. While many other organizations are now forcing their employees back to the office, progressive companies, such as ours, learned firsthand that we can be just as productive in an office as we can when we offer our team complete and total location flexibility & independence. ViralGains is today a remote-first culture on a permanent basis, where our folks can work from anywhere in the world that they choose. For those that do want to have an office, we have an HQ location in Boston, as well as a paid-for membership available for all of our staff that gives them access to a coworking facility called Spaces, which has 436 locations around the globe. To see if there is a Spaces near you, please visit https://www.spacesworks.com/locations.
  • Ownership Opportunities | Stock Options are provided to all staff as we collectively grow the enterprise value of the company, giving you the opportunity to be a future owner of the organization as your stock options vest over time.
