During our meet-up team time, we love to spend time learning a new skill together, and solving problems. Most recently this has taken on the form of a bread-making class and defeating an Escape Room. *Note*\_: we have paused our meetups due to COVID-19 and will resume when it is safe for everyone to attend\_ ### ### **Perks** 🏥 Great Health, Dental and Vision Insurance ⛑ Employer paid Life, STD and LTD benefits 💲 Competitive salary 📈 Stock Options 💰 401k 💸 Work from Home Stipend 🚀 We're a remote first company 🏝 Flexible vacation policy ### ### Inclusive Employer Routable welcomes employees from varied backgrounds and walks of life, and it’s reflected in our diverse community of Routers.
