Why work for us?

We provide a competitive compensation and benefits package. Due to the coronavirus, our team is remaining remote through the summer of 2021, and we have moved to a hybrid workplace where you can choose your best working environment.

When at the office, you will be equipped with a standing desk, a monitor, and any other tech you need to feel productive. Oh, and you can bring your dog to work. We're animal lovers here!

In addition, we offer a stocked fridge, any snacks you want, and (once we’re allowed outside again) two all-expenses-paid company trips with the team to the local Sheraton—just kidding: last year, we went to an all-inclusive resort in Costa Rica; you can check it out here.

At AppSumo, we treat all of our teammates like adults and trust that you'll get it done when you have something to do. Need to run an errand, hit the gym, or meet a friend for lunch? You are encouraged to do so. You can work from home as often as you need to, and you’ll have unlimited vacation days to go on adventures. (Everyone says it, but we mean it: We expect you to take time for yourself.

We’re committed to crafting a diverse, encouraging, and collaborative working environment—every person we bring onto the team helps cultivate a culture that we’re proud of.
