Perks and Programs

We asked NewsCred to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • College Loan Pay-down: We partnered with Gradifi to help pay-down your insane college loans. $50/month for your 7-12th months, $100/month for your 13-24th months, $150/month beyond that.
  • Same Day Medical Appointments and Health Care Navigation: NewsCred uses Eden Health to be your concierge for the medical world. They can get you same-day appointments and have helped save employees thousands of dollars on insurance claims.
  • Unlimited Paid Child Care Leave: Women and men both get unlimited leave for new children to bond and simply survive through a tough time. Most people take 12-16 weeks, and we'll figure out how to give you the time you and your significant other need.
  • Workplace Giving and Volunteer Opportunities: We work with Raised.By.Us to hold volunteer opportunities and support contribution to charities. The NewsCred charity fund that most of us donate to includes National immigration Law Center, Americans for Responsible Solutions (gun violence), "I Have a Dream" (higher education in low-income communities), the Committee to Protect Journalists, and Teach for Bangladesh.
  • Education Matching: We match up to $2500/year for education, including things that don't relate to NewsCred.

  • Bottomless Snacks, Cold Brew, and Friday Team Lunches: We eat very well, and we like our coffee. Current coffee on tap: Stumptown.
  • Training and Career Development: Maybe the greatest perk is the opportunity to learn from experts in content marketing, data analytics, the SaaS business model, etc. Each new hire gets a customized on-boarding and training plan to make sure you are ready to do amazing things.
