You'll also look critically at what we're building and how we're building it, and you'll originate ideas and activities that advance our craft.

We promise all employees that they can have meaningful work AND a full life, and we provide a work environment geared toward enriching your body, mind, and spirit. How do we do that? Well… * You're guaranteed to be given "work that matters." If you ain't feelin' that, let us know. We'll fix it. * Twice a year you can take a "sprint sabbatical" - 2 weeks to work on a project of your choosing, so long as you learn something along the way. * Your health insurance premiums are 100% paid by Bandwidth. So are your dental insurance premiums. So are your life insurance premiums. It's pretty nice. * When you're on vacation, nobody is allowed to contact you. No calls, texts, emails… Enjoy your time off. * We provide you with a gym membership, a lunchtime shuttle to the gym, and give you 90 minutes for lunch if you work out. * Not enough time to hit the gym? There's a locker room and cardio equipment on the second floor. Bandwidth Rochester NY
