What are Scorpion Perks + Benefits

Scorpion Benefits Overview

Work should feel like a home away from home, so, we treat our employees like family.

This means enough free breakfast and lunch to kiss meal-prepping goodbye forever. It also means a dedicated cafe available throughout the day, beer on tap, and as much filtered water you can drink. If you want to get active, meet us on our on-site court for a game of pick-up ball or come in for a few pumps at our gym. After your workout, feel free to unwind over a few arcade or billiards games at our game station.

Outside the office, Scorpion offers a free phone plan after 90 days, full medical, dental, vision, and life insurance premiums for full-time employees.

At Scorpion, we believe happy employees create a happy work environment, and happy work means good work. If you want to work for a company that puts your needs first, apply today.
