Total Compensation Philosophy

At LabKey, we are proud of our total compensation package and philosophy. We combine strong base pay, outstanding benefits and incentive pay with a healthy, flexible, supportive workplace culture to ensure our employees’ success in the workplace and beyond.

Compensation and Flexibility

In a world of 12 hour days and workplaces that punish you for taking vacation and taking care of your family, we value your time AND respect your life. And we will put our money on it – all employees are paid overtime for hours worked in excess of 40 per week. Team members respect each other’s time and schedules. In addition, we provide Paid Time Off to fully help you recharge and relax. We understand this model is a little unique, but so are you.

Incentive Pay
At LabKey, we support your long term success. That is why we provide ongoing Stock Option Grants, based on company and individual performance as well as a target bonus. LabKey also provides a 401(k) with an automatic company contribution with 100% automatic vesting, starting after one full month of service. Your contributions, your shared success.

Your Future

We are committed to your professional growth and development which is why we provide 5 hours per month of paid training or professional development time to help you become even better at what you do. We also offer access to online learning and classes through a membership in, have an ongoing Brown Bag series on technology and science, encourage employees to participate in our annual User Conference, and provide some support for conferences.
