Benefits at GitHub
GitHub provides a remote and flexible workplace, unlimited pto, healthcare benefits and 10 other employee benefits and perks.
A remote and flexible workplace
We encourage Hubbers to build amazing things with a high level of autonomy and self-direction. Work/life balance is important to us, which is why we offer flexible work schedules. We believe that if a job allows for it, people should work wherever they’re happiest.
Learning and development budget
Everyone at GitHub receives an Amazon gift card to buy the books they need. We’ll also send you to one work-related conference per year of your choice, anywhere in the world. If you’re invited to speak at a conference, we’ll cover you to get there.
We cover gym memberships and offer fitness classes in our onsite gym, the OctoDojo. In the Zen room, Hubbers can recharge through meditation or complimentary massage.
All full time employees enjoy 100% coverage of health insurance premiums across our Medical, Dental and Vision plan offerings, including coverage for dependents.
