Create good work for good clients and enjoy the process. 

We realize our mission by:

  • Helping good companies with our talent. Good companies are respectful, treat their customers well, are financially competent, and are doing something positive for the world. 
  • Cultivating the best opportunities for us and our clients to work together. 
  • Operationalizing business practices to be fast and nimble and to free our brains for creative and good work.

Ethics

  • We believe in doing excellent work for a fair price.
  • We believe in using our talent and time for good companies.
  • We believe in supporting each other and our community.

+

Salary & Benefits

Salary

Most crew members start with the same salary, and salary is a transparent discussion at work. We currently have a salary cap to ensure that everyone makes a fair amount of money and executives aren’t lining their pockets.

Benefits

  • Revenue sharing, split euqally among all employees 3 times a year
  • 30 hour work week
  • Summary Fridays off (shift work hours to M-Th)
  • Safe and sane company made of kind humans
  • 3 weeks paid vacation
  • Unlimited additional days off (be reasonable)
  • 15 paid company holidays per year
  • 401k with 5% company match
  • Life Insurance

  • Top-tier healthcare coverage through SelectMed (company pays 100% for employee, 50% for spouse/dependant)
  • Dental and vision coverage
  • Choice Plan covering Plan-B and Plan-C

Total Compensation Package

When we created Anchor & Alpine we wanted to create a company that takes good care of employees and covers all the benefits. We have opted for shorter working hours. At just 30 hours per week we work 75% of a normal 40 hour work week or 50% of a typical tech/startup 60 hour work week. We also believe in a lot of days off—we offer 15 company holidays plus three weeks off per year. In order to make this a reality we opted to be lean on salaries and to make revenue sharing, benefits, and other perks be the main focus. 

Your base salary is a percentage of your total compensation package (also called fully burdened cost). It accounts for about 80% of your compensation package.

Candidates that pass the phone screening and second interview will be able to review the employee handbook.


Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion

We value diversity and believe the best ideas come from different places. We support a group that is diverse in age, sexual and gender orientation, race, and religions. 

We are a company that values progressive social issues, we believe in and support the rights of women, LGBTQAI+, indigenous peoples, historically marginalized races/groups, people of determination, and all human beings. 

We value input as well as output and listen carefully to lived experiences of individuals and the cultures they come from. We build better when we work together with a diverse team. 

Anchor & Alpine, Inc. is proud to be an equal opportunity employer and provides equal employment opportunities (EEO) to all employees and applicants with regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, or genetics. In addition to federal law requirements, Anchor & Alpine, Inc. complies with applicable state and local laws governing nondiscrimination in employment.
