Here at Stack Overflow, we know how important it is that we can be our whole selves at work. We’re committed to policies and benefits that support people, and to managers who foster an open and inclusive culture. We lead by empowering and inspiring people to do their best work. We hire skilled and productive people, set them up for success, then get out of their way. Trust is key, and our employees have the flexibility to structure their day in a way that allows them to do their best work.
We also have a large network of Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) to support employees from a variety of backgrounds, interests, and identities. Our ERGs are a fundamental part of our culture at Stack Overflow. They provide education and professional development opportunities to members as well as thought leadership on strategic initiatives for our Diversity and Inclusion program. Some of our ERGs are: Moxie, LGBTQIA+, Black n Brown, Asian Pacific Islander, Mental Illness and Neurodiversity, and Allyship. These are all developed by our very own Stackers who want to continue to build spaces for people to feel like their authentic selves.
Balance is a vital part of ensuring our team feels supported. Commitments outside of work are encouraged, and employees also find ways to celebrate and share their interests within Stack Overflow. Our benefits also support this, including 16 weeks of paid parental leave for primary caregivers with the option to return part-time for up to a year, a generous vacation policy that employees are encouraged to use, and we offer a month-long sabbatical to all team members entering their fifth year.
Stack Overflow cares for the employees well-being offering various options of support:
"The regular communication, open involvement in ERG groups, frank answers during all-hands meetings, and more. I've been exceptionally happy with how the leadership team continually exudes the company's values."
"There is a good work/life balance. Management and team members trust us to do our work. We are encouraged to use our unlimited sick time to care for ourselves physically and mentally. There are resources for professional development. Overall, it's a very relaxed and professional workplace."
"People genuinely care about each other and are able to have fun while working hard. Secondary to that, I love how connected I feel to my colleagues even though I'm working remotely."
