An Insider's view of Bounteous

What does your typical day look like?

Most of our work at Bounteous is team-focused so I spend a lot of time collaborating with my team. This entails strategizing with senior developers, working with our design teams and regularly checking in with the client. Fridays at the office are also a lot of fun. Each office gets lunch catered and we typically end the day with an in-house DJ ses

What are Bounteous Perks + Benefits

Bounteous Benefits Overview

Yes, we offer competitive paychecks and annual bonuses, but we also offer top-of-the-line healthcare, vision, dental, disability, and life insurance; flexible spending accounts, including transportation savings; 401(k) benefits; and a take-what-you-need vacation policy. At Bounteous, rewarding our people for a job well done is the most important job we do.

You could say our perks start with free craft brew (including Bounteous' own) at Beer O’clock or with the Friday lunches and snacks all day, every day. Offering flexible working hours and choosing from two comfortable offices in public transportation and restaurant-friendly locations are definite pluses. For some, it’s the shiny new Apple computers and displays. For others, it’s our annual Hackathon, lunch and learn sessions, a tech conference, or certification opportunity. Or maybe it’s simply the camaraderie during an annual 5K, a bunch of coworkers kicking back and playing games during happy hour, a competitive dodgeball tournament, or bringing a date to our annual holiday bash. No matter which is your favorite, Bounteous is never short on perks!
