At Pocket Gems we believe in making sure that all of our employees have a meaningful stake in the company’s performance. We offer competitive salaries, retirement plans, and comprehensive benefits packages.
We plan programs that put Gemmers and their families first, like hosting little Gemmers at Bring Your Kids to Work Day. We also work closely with new parents to help them plan their time off and return to work.
We’re strong proponents of maintaining a healthy work-life balance. As such, we offer generous vacation and holiday time for Gemmers to rest and recharge.
We throw killer parties – from our annual Halloween bash where everyone dresses up, to building boats made of cardboard to our quarterly team outings, we love having fun together!
Choose your gear
Trick out your computer and workspace – Mac, PC, one monitor, two monitor, red monitor, blue monitor. Want a bean bag chair and a standing desk? That’s a weird combo, but go for it!
Contribute to the office
Every new employee gets $100 to contribute to the new office. Past purchases include 3D printers, massage chairs and floating sharks (don’t ask).
