Benefits at Blurb

At Blurb, you don’t just benefit from a competitive salary and equity options (and some seriously fun coworkers). Here are just a few of the perks we offer to our employees:


Blurb University

Blurb University

Blurb University offers all employees at Blurb ongoing educational and enrichment opportunities to build better career, people, and business management skills. Classes are delivered through both an e-learning module, called Harvard ManageMentor, and through specially curated in-person classes that cover a plethora of topics, such as managing your career, strategic communication, and leading through innovation and creativity.

Celebrating creativity

Are you in a band? We can’t wait to hear about it. Do you draw and write graphic novels? We’d love to see them. Got a great idea for an app? Bounce it off the team. We’re looking for real people with lives outside the office. Do what you love—in the office and out of it—and you’ll love what you do here.

Free catered lunch

We know you can’t work on an empty stomach—and we know that the team that eats together works well together. That’s why every Wednesday we order a fresh, delicious lunch for the whole office—a different global cuisine every time, from Jamaican to Japanese. We also have organic fruit deliveries twice a week. And we have cupcakes. Lots of cupcakes.

Onsite yoga

On days when we’re not eating the catered lunch, some of us turn lunchtime into fitness time with weekly onsite, heavily subsidized yoga classes. Get fit and have fun in a low-key, friendly environment that emphasizes stretching and balance.

Subsidized Massage

Work hard—but ditch the stress twice a month with onsite subsidized chair massages for $1 a minute. Set up your appointment in advance (or pick up a spot at the last minute).

Flexible Spending Accounts for medical, dependent care, and transportation expenses

$300 credit a year to create your own books with Blurb
