Culture and Benefits

Good people + Great benefits = Amazing work

Above all, our employees are what make Gates great. Ask anyone who works here, and they’ll say they love the people they work with. To us, we see this as the highest compliment possible, since happy, collaborative teams create amazing things.

Much like a big family, we invest in one another, working to embrace our diverse skills and talents to power the progress of our company. We believe our collaborative culture is what sets us apart from others within our industry and helps us thrive in a global economy. It’s also why people love working here and doing some of the best work of their lives.

"It's exciting to mentor my team and watch them grow."
