Careers @ Torx

We’re not looking for “rockstars”, “ninjas” or “gurus”. But we ARE looking for ambitious and talented individuals who have an interest in all things digital marketing. It doesn’t matter if you’re fresh out of school or have been around the block a few times. If you are a web developer, an account manager, or if you have experience in other areas of digital marketing, we’d love to hear from you. Read on to learn more about working at Torx.

Benefits + Perks

1

Health Insurance

After a short 3-month waiting period, all full-time employees are eligible to participate in Torx’s group health insurance plan. Torx pays for 50% of the total cost of an enrolled employee’s health insurance premium.

2

Retirement Benefits

Torx’s Simple IRA retirement benefits begin after a 6-month waiting period for new team members. Our Northwestern Mutual representative will help employees determine how to best set up their contributions, and Torx will match a maximum of 3%.

3

Profit Sharing

When the business has a profitable year, so do our team members. Every December, we crunch the year’s numbers, and a portion of Torx’s profits get shared between everyone. It’s MUCH better than a one-year membership to the Jelly of the Month Club!

4

Performance Reviews + Pay Raises

It should go without saying that team members are compensated for the value that they add to the business. Contributions and achievements and recognized, and pay raises are determined during annual performance reviews.

5

Paid Vacation Time

All new employees immediately receive 10 paid vacation days per year. Additional paid vacation days are awarded EVERY year until the maximum limit of 20 days/year is reached at the beginning of a team member’s 7th year.

6

Paid Sick Leave

Our sick leave policy is quite simple. If you’re sick, don’t come into the office! Team members do not have a maximum number of sick days per year, and that policy will remain in place as long as it doesn’t get abused.

7

Maternity / Paternity Leave

Torx’s maternity leave policy consists of 2 weeks of paid leave + the option of up to 4 additional weeks of unpaid leave. Our paternity leave policy consists of 1 week of paid leave + the option of up to 4 additional weeks of unpaid leave. An employee’s health insurance premium remains uninterrupted during the optional period of unpaid leave.

8

Coffee

We have coffee… LOTS of coffee… all kinds of different flavors. It’s free. Come help us drink it all!
