Who we are
"Independent contractors, part-time employees, and freelancers deserve the same access to affordable benefits that full-time workers have, and we've built the world's first portable benefits platform to make sure that happens." -Noah Lang, Co-Founder & CEO
Inspired by independents
We admire independent workers. But we know it’s not always easy. Everything we do is thoughtfully designed to meet the unique opportunities and obstacles they face.
Built to scale
The independent workforce continues to grow and we're growing with it, backed by world-class investors who believe in our mission as much as they believe in us.
Driven by values
We’re a diverse team that works together, holds ourselves and each other accountable, and builds sustainable solutions tailored to independents.
What we believe
Our core values are at the heart of everything we do. See what shapes our team, impact, and aspirations.
Diversity fuels us
We grow stronger as a team by respecting, celebrating, and empowering our unique backgrounds and perspectives.
We take the time to build meaningful connections to support each other, our partners, and our customers.
Built to last
We build teams, products, and relationships with a long-term perspective while investing in delivering value today.
We learn fast by embracing risks, making fast, high-quality decisions, and holding ourselves mutually accountable.
We win by collaborating as a team, listening to understand, intentionally speaking, and embracing honesty.
Benefits at Stride
Taking great care of independent workers starts with taking great care of our team.
Health care benefits
At Stride, we believe in taking care of your total wellbeing. That’s why our health care benefits extend beyond the standard offerings. We offer a comprehensive selection of world-class coverage, including health, dental, and vision insurance — paid for in full by Stride.
Family and work-life balance are important. That’s why our flexible parental leave policy lets you take the time you need to welcome a new family member. All Stride employees are eligible to take parental leave after their first day of work.
Your health and wellbeing outside of work matter, too! We provide a monthly stipend to help cover the expenses of activities or services that support your physical and mental health (like gym memberships, yoga classes, acupuncture, etc.) so you can live a balanced life.
At Stride, we not only provide an environment for growth — we actively invest in your continued learning and development. Accelerate your career trajectory with our yearly professional growth stipend, which you can use to enhance your skills, stay up-to-date in your field, and more.
Life isn't just about work — it’s important to take time to recharge, relax, and take care of yourself. That’s why we offer unlimited vacation time. Work-life balance is a priority at Stride, so we want to make sure you have the freedom to enjoy your personal time.
Teamwork is essential at Stride. Our annual in-person retreats provide a unique opportunity for the entire company to come together, connect, and build relationships. These retreats strengthen connections, foster collaboration, and generate innovative ideas (and they’re a ton of fun!).
