The Employer of Record, Remote, is finalizing the contract terms for Zambia. Details to the benefits in Zambia 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 10 days of sick time per year. Sick time is to take care of yourself or a loved one.
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.
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.
