Insurance: We offer excellent group health insurance plans for you and your family, as well as life, dental, and vision insurance options.

Fitness: We encourage all of our Llamas to take care of themselves both inside and outside of the office by reimbursing up to $25 per month for gym/fitness memberships.

Food: Llamas love food. So naturally, we have food-related perks. We have built relationships with several local farmers that provide fresh, locally-produced milk, meat, eggsetra (see what I did there). We also have an onsite catering company for easy access to healthy meals (It’s incredible!) delivered right to your desk.

Gadgetry: We provide our Llamas with MacBook Pros for both in-office and home use. If you’d like, we also provide convertible standing desks. Don’t want the gadgetry perk to stop there? We also are able to extend our discounts at the Apple Store and Staples to our Citizens.

Financial: We also offer a 401k savings plan.
