Why you should join the family. Mentorship with a startup feel. Paid time off: we encourage all employees to take the time they need for a vacation, to pursue their own interests, to volunteer, to stay healthy, and to spend time with friends and family. Medical, dental, vision, life, Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA), Qualified Transportation Account (QTA), disability, and parental leave benefits. Competitive pay, quarterly raises, and 401K with company matching. A flexible work from home policy. Catered lunch. Dogs, cats, turtles, goldfishes: we are a pet-friendly workspace.

What we value. Trust. Diversity. Passion. Ambition. Consistency. Ownership.

How we behave. Everyone has a seat at the table. By default, we’re inclusive, approachable, welcoming, and accessible. This is true both internally and with our customers. We believe the best ideas can and often do come from anywhere. We want everyone to have a voice. We believe in the power of diversity. At Anova, there’s a seat at the table for all of us. We’re radically open, transparent, and authentic. While we exercise empathy, we believe it’s important to tell people exactly what we think and feel. We have heart. We’re driven and ambitious. We’re scrappy and punch above our weight class. We’ve consistently heard people say they’ve never seen so much accomplished by so few. We’re competitive and have fun competing. We dive on the floor for loose balls. We care about our team and community and we’re driven to do the right thing.
