  • Internet + cell phone reimbursement – Up to $200 USD per month for your internet and cell phone plans
  • Co-working space reimbursement – Up to $300 USD per month for those times you’d prefer to work in a co-working environment
  • Learning + development – Up to $2,000 USD reimbursement per year to use on conferences, books, classes, or workshops – anything that will help you develop your skills
  • 1 month paid sabbatical after four years at Customer.io – to treat yourself to a vacation, or spend however you choose
  • Company retreats twice a year – we typically get together IRL every spring and fall, but most recently had an amazing virtual retreat!
  • Flexible schedule, work anywhere you want! – as long as you have a reliable internet connection and some overlapping work time with your manager, you can work where and when you want

All final candidates will be asked to complete an employment and education verification authorization form (which allows us to verify your job history and education listed on your resume) as part of our pre-employment process.

Customer.io recognizes the stifling impact of systemic injustice on diverse communities. We commit to using our influence to increase inclusion and equity within the tech industry. We strive to build an inclusive team culture, implement bias-free hiring practices, and develop community partnerships to expand our global impact.
