What are Affirm Perks + Benefits

Affirm Benefits Overview

If your role is remote, you can set up shop anywhere in your home country. Generous time off enables you to take the time you need when life happens. Health benefits that include vision, dental, and mental health programs. We have a simple, flexible and transparent remote-first compensation structure so you can make the best decisions for yourself and your family. Our parental leave policy includes 18 weeks’ paid leave for birth and non-birth parents, and a 4-week return-to-work transition program, at full base pay.

An Insider's view of Affirm

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I was originally based in our San Francisco office and recently transitioned to our NYC office. I love the NYC office because it feels like a true start-up! I get the best of both worlds. A growing start-up with infrastructure and stability but with the excitement of a small office and team.

Jeremy

Software Engineer

What are some things you learned at the company?

I've learned that staying true to Affirm's consumer-first mission requires a nearly daily commitment to it from the whole company with respect to how decisions are made, which goals are set, & what we decide to build. Sharing this clear north star with my coworkers allows us to connect & align on a deeper level - we're all here for the same reason.

Niki

Group Product Manager

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The New York office combines the tight knit, friendly culture of a smaller startup start up with the huge projects of a scaled out company, all while located in the heart of the world's best city. People in NYC are generally hard working, laid back, and fun to talk to.
