At AppSumo, a company that offers awesome products for entrepreneurs, you’ll start and end the week on a high note. Monday morning, the team blasts through some calisthenics. Friday afternoon, AppSumo’s CTO whips up drinks for happy hour.
The good times don’t end in the office. Each year, the entire company jets off to Las Vegas for some team bonding—trust falls not included.
AppSumo’s employees are pretty vocal about how much they love each other.
“Noah, I heart you, Chad, and the whole team,” says Jamie Hiyama, who works in customer experience. “This is 99.2% the best job I’ve ever had.”
The team also isn’t quiet about the flexible vacation policy. Monday-through-Friday, 9-to-5? Not at this company: You’ll set your own hours. You can also work remotely (which those of you in a committed relationship with your sweats will appreciate, we’re sure).
“I LOVE coming to work. I love working on something that's actually changing the world with people who are insanely smart and who teach me something new every single day,” says Anton Sepetov, business development. “Oh, and the fully stocked bar downstairs and flexible vacation policy don’t hurt either.”
One of the other huge perks about working at AppSumo: You’ll get access to all of the company’s awesome deals, and you’ll also get a monthly budget for “self-improvement”—which can be interpreted pretty loosely. Origami, cooking, or guitar classes all count.
