Our benefits enable our employees to do their best work and create a life they love

Supporting you and your family’s health

Taking care of our team goes beyond the office with health, vision, and dental benefits for employees and dependents. Umbra provides fully paid coverage for employees, as well as 70% paid health coverage and fully paid vision/dental for dependents. Umbra pays for employee life and long-term disability insurance with the option for additional out-of-pocket coverages.

Supercharge your skills and your career

Our knowledgeable and accessible leadership team is committed to helping you grow in your career. We provide a supportive onboarding experience, as well as access to countless professional and skill development opportunities. From sponsored trainings to educational assistance programs and more. It’s important to us to help you create a career that is inspiring, challenging, and uniquely yours.

Take time off when you choose

We love our work, but taking time off is necessary to maintain a healthy balance. We encourage our team to take time off when needed. We offer flexible time off, paid sick leave, and paid medical/family leave. So give yourself a wellness day anytime or go on that spontaneous trip. Seriously, we love when you’re at the top of your game.

Plan for your future

Our success is directly related to the results of the team’s efforts. That’s why every full-time employee is eligible to enjoy ownership of Umbra stock options. We also provide a 401k plan with a 3% non-elective employer contribution to all our employees, including interns, to help you save for your future.
