Our Principles

A diverse and inclusive workplace

At GitHub, we think that a diverse company is a strong company, and we work hard to foster a supportive and welcoming workplace. Learn more about our commitment to diversity.

Work happier

Build amazing things with a balance of autonomy and collaborative teamwork. Set your own work schedule and make use of a flexible PTO plan when you need to recharge.

Lead from any location

GitHub is a remote-first company with offices located throughout the US, Europe, and Asia. Whether you live near an office or not, GitHub believes you can do your best work wherever you are. You will receive annual reimbursements to outfit your home office and ensure you have what you need so you are set up to do your best work.

Put your health and family first

Employees in the United States enjoy 100% coverage of health insurance premiums across our medical, dental, and vision plan offerings, including coverage for dependents. We also offer five months of paid family leave to all new parents with the option to use it all at once or throughout the baby’s first year.

Lead a balanced life

GitHub provides an annual Wellness and Lifestyle reimbursement designed to cover anything from gym memberships, massage, meditation apps, tax prep and financial wellness services, and even petcare.

Invest in your future

At GitHub, you’ll have a stake in the future success of our platform with equity grants. For full-time employees in the United States, we offer competitive 401k planning with a 50% company match up to the IRS 402(g) annual limit.

Keep growing

Learn how you learn best. From books to conferences, you’ll get a yearly budget for your individual learning and development goals.

Give back to your community
