Perks and Benefits
Code for America is invested in the well-being of our employees. In addition to competitive salaries, we offer comprehensive health, dental, and vision insurance with 100% premium coverage for employees.

The environment at Code for America is designed to be supportive and flexible. Employees are required to take at least one mental health day per month and we offer free access to a suite of mental health apps. We also have specific resources for parents, caretakers, and pet owners. Every employee has access to a wide variety of professional development resources for continuous learning and growth, including a yearly $1,000 professional development budget.
Code for America is committed to building a team as diverse as the nation we serve. We’re made up of people-centered problem solvers: technologists, advocates, storytellers, and organizers from many different backgrounds and communities around the country. We merge the best parts of technology, nonprofit, and government—so our collaborative culture is constantly evolving with the ideas of each new member.
We strive to be inclusive—a place people can grow and freely share their ideas. For example, our product development teams use pair programming, daily stand-ups, blameless post mortems, and user research to ensure our teams are on track to do their best work. We come together to learn from each other at our lunchtime speaker series, our quarterly off-sites, and our Weekly Wins meetings. We also have a number of employee resource groups, including our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion committee, a monthly LGBTQIA meetup, our Earthtones group for BIPOC employees, a justice-themed book club, and more!
Welcome to our loft-style work space in San Francisco! We have an open floor plan and conference rooms so you can work solo or in a group. There are plenty of snacks and drinks to keep you fueled and a bike room for those who choose to cycle to work. Our space is fully accessible for people who use wheelchairs or require other disability accommodations. We work hard to ensure that our office space is comfortable, collaborative, and inclusive.
We work hard, but we also prioritize work-life balance. Our flexible schedules allow you to build working hours that fit your needs. We try to set meeting hours between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Pacific Time, have company-wide “No Meeting Thursdays,” and allow employees to block off time for childcare or caretaking responsibilities. We are a growing remote team and welcome applications from people outside the San Francisco Bay Area for most roles.
