A few benefits

  • We pay you to quit

    If for any reason you don't absolutely love your job at TurnCommerce, the company will pay you $2,000 to quit/resign within the first 6 months of employment. Life is short. If for any reason you don't feel TurnCommerce is the perfect fit we will pay you to leave the company (credit goes to Zappos for originally coming up with this perk.)

  • State of the art gear

    You tell us what hardware you like to roll with and we will make it happen! Most people in the company use 4 monitors. Some even more. Our development rigs are extremely fast. You get the point. We believe three monitors in a development environment is the minimum but you can request as many as you like.

  • Very few meetings

    Don't like meetings? Great. We hardly have any planned or structured meetings. Why? Because we would rather be hard at work solving important technical problems. When we need to discuss project requirements or a new technical implementation, we gather in an informal setting and just start working towards the solution to that particular problem.

  • Commitment to learning

    TurnCommerce is committed to development and the enrichment of all employees and has a process which facilitates ongoing learning opportunities. We believe you will learn more at TurnCommerce than most other companies.
