Notes from an insider: “We think of ourselves as being people-first,” said VP of Business Operations and People Robert Charming. “We look for teammates who are strong communicators and who enjoy collaborating. Our Krew is building a better customer experience that focuses on personalization and support — a mindset that begins with our team.”

What they do: HyperScience provides companies with AI solutions that automate manual processes.

Coolest perks: Employees receive daily catered lunch, subsidized gym memberships, and 30 days of PTO each year. Employees are also encouraged to take advantage of family-focused perks, including six months paid parental leave, a child care and education stipend and free travel for any person accompanying a breastfeeding mother and her baby on a business trip.

Notes from an insider: “Our aim is to hire people who can be the CEO of their own function,” said CEO and founder Peter Brodsky. “We believe that ownership of one’s work and decisions is hugely important and allows talent to flourish.”

Coolest perks: Revolut offers employees a 401 (k) matching program, unlimited PTO and catered meals. They also have a flexible work policy and give employees the ability to work remotely.

Notes from an insider: “We are not afraid of doing new things — that's what entrepreneurship is,” said CEO Nik Storonsky. “We'd rather try and fail rather than wait, analyze, think and don't do anything. There is a good term for that — paralysis through analysis. We are not that type of team.”
