We take care of each other at Foursquare. Our highly competitive benefits package includes premium medical, dental, vision and advanced fertility coverage including egg freezing. We offer three benefit plans, including two which are 100% company paid for employees and their dependents. We also offer paid parental leave for all employees and flexibility upon return to work from leave. We believe wellness is an important part of health, so we offer discounted gym memberships and reimbursements for those who join gyms or take classes as well as onsite massages, yoga, and acupuncture events.
Real Ownership: Each employee of Foursquare contributes to one another’s success and we want everyone to benefit from that. Employees are part owners in the company and are granted an equity stake as part of their total compensation package.
Flexible PTO: We know that employees who are passionate about what they do work hard, so recharging is a must. Every full time employee is eligible for our flexible time off policy.
Learning and Development: Learning & development is not only important to our employees, it’s important to our business! We have a growth mindset and believe learning from each other, and pushing ourselves to expand our horizons makes us all better inside and outside of the office. Foursquare offers both internal and external training programs for managers and individual contributors. As an employee you can participate in things like manager training led by leaders in the field, 1:1 manager coaching with external coaches, our regular speaker series, and Foursquare University.
Good Eats: We have great coffee, healthy snacks, catered lunches, and subsidized dinners make it easy to stay energized at work.
Good Times: We like to have fun together! Employees participate in regular company happy hours, our annual summer company event, or the best night of the year: Foursquare’s infamous Talent Show! We also like to have fun at external outings like glass etching, wood working, or bread baking! We love to be a part of events that bring us together to create an inclusive environment.
