We offer you career development guidance and planning, including an annual learning and development stipend so you can enrich your personal and professional growth. We also have a leadership development program, LEAD@theSkimm, geared toward creating strong and effective leaders and an internal mobility program designed to give our employees opportunities to explore different career paths.

We have a vibrant, collaborative, and supportive culture

We celebrate and we like to have fun — whether you’re at HQ or you’re working remotely! We come together weekly to share company-wide updates. We have clubs and activities like Employee Resource Groups, book clubs, new hire buddy programs, rooftop lunches, off-sites, and wellness focused classes. We host events that enable our entire organization to come together IRL at our headquarters. We provide rewards for work anniversaries and have employee awards ceremonies to celebrate accomplishments.

We prioritize flexibility and your well-being

We offer a hybrid working model with flexibility for remote work, unlimited vacation, generous holiday observances, and a one month paid sabbatical after your five year anniversary. We provide comprehensive insurance plans across medical, dental, and vision and access to support resources to help promote your well-being. We also provide memberships for One Medical and Eden Health to make your access to healthcare even easier. We truly honor Sacred Time in our workplace so you can set aside time for the things that matter most to you.

We support our parents at all points on their journey

We’re proud to offer 18 weeks of paid leave to all parents (adoption, fostering, and surrogacy included) and bereavement leave for pregnancy loss. We also have additional leave for parents whose newborns are in the NICU — their 18 weeks starts when their baby comes home. Additionally, we offer access to family building and fertility benefits through Kindbody, as well as a flexible and broad scale childcare and tutoring support program through our partners at Vivvi. Plus, we promote working flexibility based on parental schedules. Check out more about our support for paid family leave here.
