We’ll be honest — we get a LOT of applications. We don’t hide what a great place this is to work. Our people are our best asset, and we only accept the best.


Also, our benefits are CRAZY good.

Here are just some of the perks you’ll get as a member of #TeamVital:

 

Unlimited Vacation Time

Yup, you read that correctly. Unlimited vacation time. Without proper vacation breaks, the health, happiness and imagination of our team suffers. The absence of down time leads to burn-out, poor engagement and lack of innovation. Our people are trusted, responsible, driven professionals; they aspire to travel, to explore, to fulfill hopes and dreams. They also truly love their work and arrive inspired to come to work every day — and part of that is taking time to recharge as needed. Freesponsibility.

 

Gym Membership

Your offer letter comes with a gym membership, paid for by Vital. Bodies in motion are happier, healthier and more productive. Access to the local gym facilities, including a wide variety of group classes, is only where the perks begin. It’s up to you where you take it from there. Whether you’re training for your next marathon or strengthening your core while catching up on your favorite podcasts, we empower you to take proactive charge of your health.

 

Gym Days with Personal Trainer

Twice a week, Vital drops everything and heads to the gym as a team, where our personal trainer leads us through group cross-training. This high-cardio workout is something that all members of our team can participate in at their own level. The friendly competition and support helps us all achieve our personal best, and return to the office reenergized to tackle the day’s work.

 

Vital Fun Days

Four days each year are allocated as “Vital Fun Days.” These team no-work days range from beach days in Rye to hanging out on the slopes of the White Mountains. We actually have a whole “Fun Committee” that’s in charge of planning these quarterly excursions, as well as planning other frequent initiatives and breaks to ensure that our team is always having fun.

 

Weekly Catered Lunch
Once a week, our team gathers in the Alley (well, weather-permitting) and chows down on lunch catered and cooked for us by a professional chef. Don’t worry, we’ve got vegetarians, vegans, gluten-free and paleo folks among us, so there are options to suit all diets. Did we mention it’s always SUPER delicious? Getting extra hang time with the team is the cherry on top. Want to hear about weekly catered lunch directly from the Vital team? Watch this video.

 

Vacation Stipend of $500
Uh, yeah, so in addition to giving you whatever time off you need, we’ll also give you some spending money to help you really enjoy that vacation. That’s like a week of Air BNB, a good chunk of your plane fare or LOTS of commemorative photos with Goofy. Because we want you back happy, k? ☺

 

Work in Downtown Portsmouth
This is where it’s all happening — the bustling downtown famous for its vibrant arts & culture scene and zillion great restaurants and bars. Vital started as a downtown company and will always be a downtown company — it’s part of the culture of Vital to hit the town as a group at the drop of a hat, for lunch or celebratory drinks. And there’s just no substitute to being in the heart of the city, surrounded by all of its creative energy.

 

Snacks!
Brains need fuel to keep working all day. We’ve got a steady supply of munchies on hand for those moments when you need to get your creative juices going with some mastication action. You don’t need to wait for a client meeting for us to bust them out, either. They’re right there in the kitchen, ready to pair nicely with your 3 o’clock coffee break.

 

Macs
I mean, I’m sure there are SOME design studios that use Windows, but … yeah, nope. We’re an Apple office, and you’ll get your own Mac to work on here. We’ll set you up with a second monitor or whatever you need to be the most productive.

 

Awesome Clients
We’ve worked really hard over the past 15+ years to get where we are today. The result of that hard work? We are now in the fortunate position to be selective about what types of clients we take on. Therefore, we have an enviable roster of awesome clients that we love working with — and they love us back. Not only will you love who you’re working WITH, you’ll love who you’re working FOR.

 

Awesome Office Environment: Desks (stand up!)/Chairs/Music
“Going up!” is heard pretty frequently around here (you don’t HAVE to announce your transition to standing, but it sure is fun). Yup, we’ve all got desks that transition to standing workstations at the push of a button. We all put in some serious hours at our desks, so the ability to stand up, move around, or groove to some in-the-zone tunage is encouraged. We also have some collaboration stations around the office for a change of scenery, and some quiet rooms for quick meetings or to clear your head. And you gotta check out the elevator room!

 

Continuing Education (Conferences, UXPA?)
It’s important that we are all on top of what’s going on in our particular area of expertise. Vital wants you to stay sharp, to stay ahead and on top of your career. Part of that is on you — to keep current via the blogosphere and social media, etc. — but part of it needs an investment of time and money for specific training. So if there’s a conference or course or class that will make you better at your job, we’re totally behind it. We’ll send you there.

 

GOOD Health Benefits
Sure, we’ll give you health benefits — but not just the bare-bones health plan here. We want you (and your family, if applicable) to be covered with a really great plan. We offer a comprehensive and affordable health benefits package with optional dental and vision coverage. And our benefits rep is right down the hall, so if you have any questions, you’ll get a quick answer.

 

IRA — Simple IRA 100% Match, up to 3% of salary
Okay, so talking about IRAs isn’t the sexiest thing in the world, but that shit’s important. Vital offers a Simple IRA with a 100% match to your contribution up to 3%. Basically, Vital is doubling your investment in your own future. We may not be thinking of retiring any time soon, but make smart choices now, and you’ll be taken care of when the time comes.

 

Handbook
So, it’s important that we get to know YOU as a potential member of #TeamVital — but it’s equally important that you get to know US. Like, really know why we do what we do, what our values are and how we run our day-to-day work lives. We’ve put a lot of that into our Vital Handbook — check it out to see why Vital is such a special place to work.

 

Paid Holidays
We shut down the office on the major holidays — Thanksgiving, Labor Day, Memorial Day, etc. — but we don’t take it out of your pay. These are days to be spent with family and friends. And we think it’s pretty cool to be paid for doing cannonballs into the lake/ocean/margarita pool.

 

Office Closed Christmas – New Years

Yeah, we already mentioned unlimited vacation time and paid holidays, but it’s worth mentioning specifically that we also totally close up shop from December 24th through January 2nd each year. With a rare critical exception, it’s “see you next year” and offline for everyone! Remember when you were a kid and you got the whole end of year holiday vacation? It’s like that, except you can totally stay up as late as you want now. #adulthood

 

The Best Coworkers Around
You know how like 90% of people say “uh, my eyes, I guess” when asked for their best feature? Well, 90% of Vitalians agree that it’s the people we work with every day that make it such a great place to be. Which makes sense, because the eyes are the window to the soul, and Vitalians are the window to the soul of Vital. We support each other, laugh together, work hard and give and get lots of high-fives. It may sound corny, but we’re a family.

 

We Trust You.
It’s as simple as that. We hired you for a reason — you’re at the top of your field, and you don’t get there by being micromanaged. You got this. It’s up to us to empower you — which is where the Macs, standing desks, vacation time, healthcare and snacks come in — but ultimately your work will stand on its own. Do you. Hustle. Work hard. We trust you.
