The Employer of Record, Remote, is finalizing the contract terms for Nigeria. Details to the benefits in Nigeria will be updated in the near future. In addition to country-specific benefits, Shared Benefits are available to all employees.
Annual Leave/Vacation Time
Employees accrue 20 days of vacation per year. Your vacation accrual increases to 25 days per year on your third anniversary at thoughtbot.
Employees accrue 12 days of sick time per year.
All thoughtbot team members are eligible for both paid and unpaid parental leave after the birth or adoption of a child. The paid and unpaid leave can be combined for up to 6 months of total time off. In some locations, team members are eligible for more time off. thoughtbot ensures 6 weeks 100% paid parental leave for all non-birthing parents and 12 weeks 100% paid parental leave for all birthing parents. In locations with their own system for paid leave, thoughtbot’s policy runs concurrently with the local system.
In Nigeria birthing parents are entitled to 12 weeks of leave paid at 50% of their average salary. Birthing parents may begin taking leave six weeks prior to their due date. This runs concurrently with the 12 weeks of thoughtbot birthing leave, and the 12 first weeks after birth will be topped up to 100% salary.
Employees may take up to 5 paid days off for the death of someone close. This includes pregnancy loss. We understand the deep impact that death can have on an individual or a family, so if you need more than 5 days off, you can also use your accrued paid time off, or unpaid time off.
