Here at "VR" we're constantly striving to do more for our small business and non-profit customers, our employees and our community. How do we do it? It's simple; we just listen.
Small businesses are at the heart of helping our economy grow, and we're dedicated to providing tools to get them going! We often get in front of our customers, the local shop owner, the online publisher, even the dive bar down the street and we listen. We listen to how they run their business and how we can help them make it better.
Our VR people want to grow, they want a career, and we give them that. A whopping 40% of our people have been promoted over time, and many a few times!
Our employees want to learn. We offer them new opportunities within VR to learn new skills, hell even a new job! However we can make our people better at what they do or better yet, what they want to do, we strive to do that.
Oh, you're an engineer? We provide a start-up working environment with the security of a company that has been cash-flow positive for the past six years. We also work with the latest version of Rails, test-driven development, paired programming and database sharing. We're always looking to the very latest technologies to drive our competitive advantage.
Families come first here and although we work hard and smart, we don't work until we crash and burn. Many of our significant others and children are honorary VR volunteers and we like to get the kids in the office on "take your kids to work day" – grilled cheese on the house!
Strap your feedbags on, we've got 'Bagel Mondays', organic fruit deliveries, quarterly employee-run lunches and end of week libations to name a few. Every quarter we have offsite happy hours at places like the Thirsty Bear, Supper Club, Nova, Infusion Lounge, Temple, and Golden Gate Park.
We offer full medical, dental and vision coverage for employees and 40% coverage of dependents. We also offer 401(k) matching, pre-tax commuter benefits, FSA, LTD, STD and life insurance. We also offer health and wellness programs such as acupuncture and chiropractic coverage, subsidized gym memberships, and the occasional on-site guest massage therapist.
We also think it's important to give back to the community. Every quarter everyone is invited to participate in a volunteer event. Past events include Homeless Connect, San Francisco Food Bank, and Hands on Bay Area projects. We also match employee donations to non-profits of their choice and 'drink and donate' by holding regular donation drives at our parties. See our sustainability page for more details.
