About PerkSpot

We’re a team of thirty people working out of our office in Chicago’s River North neighborhood. We dress how we like, stock a good beer selection, boast unlimited vacation days and work to the background of our office Spotify playlists.

We work with America’s top employers to offer the best perks and discounts to their five million employees. These exclusive savings are a great recruitment and retention tool that allows their employees to take advantage of unique opportunities and feel great about their company. 

Most of all, we dig good people with lots of energy and enthusiasm. We work hard and expect a lot of one another, but we often find enough time left in the day to play a quick game of ping-pong or work on our dart arm.
