Our Benefits
As we ask you to enable our customers to do their best work, we think it’s right to do the same for you.

We don’t accessorize our offices with fire poles and slides, but we do ensure everyone at Stratus gets support, inside the office and out, that’s second to none.

What’s most important to us is growing with great people.

Are you seeking purpose-driven work, and your expertise doesn’t appear to match any of the listed positions? Send us a note. We’d rather start talking and work through a few weeks to get aligned than miss out on years of partnership and growth.

We look forward to hearing from you.
