We work hard, but we also know you have a family, friends, hobbies, and a life outside of work. That’s why we offer a great benefits package, not just a competitive salary.

Unlimited PTO

We’re huge advocates of you taking time off to spend with your family, travel, relax, and re-energize, so take the vacation time that you need.


Medium offers a range of plans from Anthem BCBS, Kaiser, Aetna and MetLife. We cover 100% of the premiums for you, and 70% for your dependents, spouse, and domestic partner.


While we encourage everyone to live mindfully in the moment, we also encourage our employees to plan for the future. You'll have the opportunity to participate in our 401(K) plan through Vanguard with no waiting period.

Fitness Reimbursement

Exercise has been proven to help you stay healthy and relieve stress. Medium will reimburse you up to $120/month towards your fitness class or gym membership.


We strongly believe that having the space and resources to pursue your interests and explore a passion are incredibly important to cultivating a growth mindset and a sense of play. Medium will reimburse you up to $1,000 per calendar year to help cover the cost of anything that supports your career development.

Home Workstation Bonus

$500 bonus (post-tax) for items you need to outfit your home workstation.
