WHY JOIN THE EQUILAR TEAM?
Rapid Growth . We’ve been recognized repeatedly as one of the fastest-growing private companies in America by Deloitte, Inc. magazine, the Silicon Valley Business Journal , and the San Francisco Business Times. With our new ExecAtlas service and expanding international opportunities, we expect our growth rate to accelerate even further in the near future.
Financial Strength . Our business is built on a profitable, subscription-based model with high client retention rates. We’ve had 11 years of consecutive growth, with no down years or layoffs. We take pride in our disciplined fiscal approach and have consciously avoided the financial irresponsibility that has taken down many startups in Silicon Valley. We do not have any outside investors (nor do we seek any), and maintain full control of our company’s future.
Performance-Driven Culture. We come from diverse backgrounds and top universities with proven track records of success. We seek top-quartile performers who strive to be the best at everything that they do. We are 100% employee-owned and reward our top performers with a unique profit sharing program.
Great Career Opportunities . As a rapidly growing market leader, we offer plenty of opportunities for those passionate about career advancement and developing a broad skill set. When opportunities arise, our preference is to hire from within and train a top performer with a high career ceiling, rather than bringing in someone from the outside.
In Summary . We offer the energy and ambition of a startup and the stability and benefits of a publicly traded company. We are growing rapidly and looking for exceptional talent who share our values to join our team and help take our business to the next level.
Equity Ownership and Profit Sharing . Our pay-for-performance culture gives top-performing employees the opportunity to take part in a unique profit sharing program. To the best of our knowledge, we are the only company in Silicon Valley that offers a broad based S-corp equity ownership structure that pays out annual cash dividends to its employee shareholders. Providing equity ownership opportunities and profit distributions is our way of sharing Equilar’s success with you.
401(k) Match Program . We generously match up to four percent of salary in our 401(k) plans, and have never reduced, eliminated or capped our matching contribution. All matching contributions are immediately vested for you to keep.
Health Benefits . Employees and their dependents receive medical, vision, and dental benefits. We have several flexible benefit plans to choose from, including HSA and PPO plans.
Training and Development . Equilar promotes a culture of continuous learning and strives to offer top training and development opportunities. We offer tuition reimbursement for employees taking courses relevant to work or graduate-school preparation and have long-term training programs in place to develop business, leadership, and management skills.
Onsite Company Gym. We are committed to keeping employees happy, healthy, and productive. Our fully-equipped onsite gym is open to all employees so you can come back to work refreshed and energized.
Free Caltrain Passes . Our office is within walking distance of the Redwood City Caltrain station. All employees who choose to take public transit are provided with a free Caltrain pass.
Time Away . Time to recharge is an important part of life at Equilar. Employees receive up to 28 paid days off in their first year. This includes vacation days, sick days, holidays, and a company-wide "Holiday Week," which gives all employees who have been with us for one year paid time off for the week between Christmas and New Year's.
As part of our commitment to a safe work environment, we require authorization to conduct pre-employment drug testing.
