Headquartered in San Francisco and Denver, Gusto provides small businesses with the resources they need to take care of their teams. The online platform supply companies with full-service payroll, health insurance, 401(k)s, expert human resources and team management tools. The company's offices in Denver, San Fran and New York support more than 100,000 companies and their teams around the United States.
Gusto believes that work can be the cornerstone for improving your life. That's why to Gusto, it's so much more than just sitting at a desk or having a to-do list. Instead, the company focused on creating a culture that is inviting to anyone and everyone. One that the team is proud to be apart of. A culture that is driven and shaped by these values:
These values serve as a guide for the team in their work-life, as well as their personal life. The values are the foundation of any decision or idea the team makes. At Gusto, they truly care about solving meaningful problems and building amazing products.
Employee-driven, the culture at Gusto supports ownership and action. Despite being backed by some large companies, Gusto still has a cultural feel of a startup with the amount of career advancement and growth opportunities employees have. The company has teams that expand across engineering, marketing and people departments. Diversity within each of those teams is a very important belief of the company.
A committee of employees has been put together with employees from each department and the founders. This committee is dedicated to supporting diversity and inclusion within the company. Back when this committee was first formed they completed regular check-ins to collect and analyze data. The committee also took action where it was needed and served as a checks and balances system.
With the addition of this committee, the company saw the need to recruit more women to the engineering team. So that's exactly what it set out to do. Job descriptions were rewritten to remove gender bias and recruiters visited career fairs and technology conferences to explain how they could represent the company. Now, 1 in 4 engineers is female at Gusto.
In addition to making people feel welcome, the company believes in providing meaningful work because when people care about the work they're doing they excel. The company encourages you to seek projects that you're most passionate about and share your interests with the company. With engineering town halls, demo days, company-wide town halls, you're sure to reach your career goals.
The brag-worthy headquarters space in Denver is located in a former shopping center on the 16th St. Mall. Complete with a fully-stocked kitchen, cozy booths, bean bag chairs and a no-shoes policy, what more could you want out of a workspace? Yes, you can work from the bean bag chairs. And yes, the no-shoes policy is weird but the company uses it to show off their crazy socks and warm slippers.
Right outside of the cafeteria is a large balcony that employees use to enjoy patio lunches and soaking up the sun. The views from the balcony include the Daniels amp; Fisher Tower and the 16th Street Mall. And if you're into people-watching, the balcony is the perfect place.
The company believes in making sure employees feel valued, taken care of and appreciated. And it shows with the benefits package that is offered. At Gusto, you're valued above everything else. Plus, the company is constantly looking for new ways to improve the benefits to ensure you're getting the best care possible. As is everything else at Gusto, the benefits were drawn up with the company's core values in mind.
Let's start with the best benefit of all - the Little Bundle of Joy. This package is for parents who are expecting a new (you guessed it) little bundle of joy. It's complete with 16 weeks of paid maternity leave and 8 weeks of paternity leave. But it doesn't stop there. The new parents also receive weekly home meal delivery, house cleaning, sleep coaching and diapers. This way you can focus on your newborn without worrying about the other household tasks.
Another fun benefit that's provided by the company is the free roundtrip airfare ticket to anywhere in the world. This is available to employees after one year of service with the company. Then after that first year, you get an additional $500 to spend on activities like skydiving or a spa day. Talk about enjoying a vacation. Other benefits include:
It's true that the company believes that a better work environment leads to a better life. With this benefits package and the company culture, it's easy to see how your life could be improved by working at Gusto.
