This is a fantastic opportunity for someone passionate about the perks and rewards space who is motivated by the rush of finding new business relationships and is excited by the prospect of a high-paced, autonomous environment.

  • Excellent communication skills and ability to think on your feet

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.

 

A day in the Life

Benefits

PerkSpot offers the full suite of benefits you’d expect from a profitable, established company. We offer complete health and dental insurance, commuter benefit and 401k program. We have in-office bike storage and a shower on-site. We offer an open time-off policy. The beer is free and we’re pretty obsessive about our premium coffee.
