The Zebra recently marked the one-year anniversary of their move to a tricked-out penthouse suite in one of Austin’s most desirable downtown office buildings, complete with expansive patios. The space is an addition to the long list of employee perks, including an in-house barista, daily smoothies, ergonomic desks, unlimited paid time off policy, monthly personal maid service and a “Treat Yo’Self” allowance for employees to pursue their interests or unwind — be it with a Netflix subscription, rock climbing, or even calligraphy lessons. The company espouses values that make the office a space of collaboration, respect and innovation.
The Austin Business Journal unveiled the list of 2017 Best Places to Work at its annual awards luncheon on June 23.
