What you’ll get out of the deal
In addition to getting to work with friendly people in the in a small town a few blocks from the beach,, we offer a wide range of professional perks.
Simple IRA (after 1 year)
Competitive Salary based on experience/performance
Various National Holidays
FREE LUNCH 1/MONTH
We treat the team to an in-office lunch once a month...we eat, talk, and then eat again.
SNACKS, BEER & HOT SAUCE
The kitchen is well-stocked, and anything not labeled for personal use is fair game. The beer is almost never labeled.
The world was made to be hacked, and our hack day is one of the most beloved SEM Geeks traditions. Every so often, we pause all our usual work and break into small teams. Then we spend all day (and all night) creating something that makes the world a better place. The next morning, everyone presents what they’ve made. It’s something you’ll never forget.
