We know you're not here for the money, so we're paying you as little as possible. But we do offer some "benefits" to keep you content:

  • Work with the greatest talent in town. You will have the "opportunity" to work with some of the most hardworking individuals in the tech industry.
  • Join a community. We believe the best things happen when we come together to solve complex problems and make meaningful connections with each other through interest groups, sports clubs, and social events.
  • Accelerate your career. We provide all interns access to 1:1 coaching from our staff psychiatrist (free adderall), therapy and digital mental wellness resources, as long as they help us exploit people's privacy.
  • Find love. By joining Big Tech Co., you will have the opportunity to participate in our mandatory staff polycule!
  • Take a break. When you work hard, we know you also need to rest. We offer 7 days of parental leave and unlimited PTO which you should know better than to use.

We also offer a paid Big Techie Sabbatical for employees who have been with us for 30 years or more.
  • Stay happy and healthy. Enjoy the same snacks every day in the office. Plus, join the gym if you feel like it! We won't stop you unless it decreases your job performance.
