Employee Referral Bonus

We will pay a $1,000 (£800) referral bonus when you refer someone in your social or personal networks who is hired to a full-time position.

The bonus is paid upon completion of the newly hired employee’s first 3 months of employment (or after promotion for Apprentices).


All employees of thoughtbot are eligible for this benefit.

The referral bonus is intended to incentivize us to refer people within our regular social and personal networks. Therefore it does not apply to people who are recruited through our regular outbound recruiting efforts.

You must still be employed with thoughtbot at the time it should be paid in order to receive the bonus.
