    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. 


    We love to reward our employees for all the hard work they do. That’s why we offer some of the most comprehensive benefits packages around. Our goal is to create a positive, healthy work environment where our people come first, and everyone thrives.

    What we stand for

    Gates was built on five core values: accountability, collaboration, tenacity, curiosity, and dedication. These values continue to inspire our drive for greatness, and it is seen both in our products and our employees.
