Here’s Exactly How Much Our Company Spends on Perks & Benefits

Buffer’s People Team spends a lot of time thinking about perks.

One of our biggest and most important perks is maybe the toughest to quantify: The freedom to work whenever, wherever, and however we like.

Being a diverse, distributed team impacts our perks philosophy deeply. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach; we all work differently and are motivated by different drivers.

So over the years we’ve built a robust catalog of benefits, focusing on a customizable approach.

Buffer has a "People Team" who makes sure that their team is feeling great (what!).

Although the biggest benefit of remote work is already built into it – work from home or anywhere else in the world – there are more awesome perks that Buffer provides. How cool is that:
