Our Benefits & Perks
  • Focus on well-being

We provide full health coverage for you and your family. That means that Stack Overflow pays 100% of your premiums. Additionally, we provide supplemental benefits such as telemedicine options.

  • Work where you want

We have a remote-friendly culture. Before the pandemic, we were 40% remote. Today, we’re fully remote through at least July 2021. So long as your timezone works for your team, work where you want.

  • Work how you want

While we’re fully remote, we’re supporting all employees with home office reimbursements and internet stipends. We also encourage employees to set their working hours on their calendar and in Slack to encourage flexibility.

  • Take care of loved ones

We offer paid parental leave, a meal stipend, and the primary caregiver has the option to come back to work part-time for up to one year. We also have a special caregiver policy due to the pandemic.

  • Keep learning & growing

Access to a personal and professional coach on a 1:1 basis to help develop your career. Additionally, all employees have an annual professional development budget of up to $2,500 for continuing education, conferences, and memberships, in order to advance their skills and knowledge.

  • Stay fit & have fun

We provide employees monthly fitness reimbursements as well as host regular yoga and meditation classes during the work day. That’s in addition to regular virtual cooking classes, “bev bashes” (what we call happy hours), and more.
