What it’s like to work at Winnie

  • We use Slack and video calls to facilitate communication with remote employees

What we offer

  • Generous equity package and a competitive salary 
  • Excellent medical, vision, and dental coverage for employees and their families

  • Generous vacation policy (and we use it)
