Perks & Benefits

Unlimited
Paid Time Off

We also offer unlimited paid time off to all salaried employees, with a general recommendation to take at least 3-5 weeks off each year. We trust our employees to be communicative and accountable, and we’ve had a lot of great experiences with this model of PTO.

DPC
Healthcare

Fox Robotics also offers fully-paid Direct Primary Care (DPC) healthcare coverage for employees through Decent. DPC is a premium model of healthcare that’s similar to having a doctor on retainer, and our employees enjoy a personalized, highly-responsive relationship with their providers, as well as access to a large, national network of specialist providers.

Additional
Wellness Coverage

In addition to industry-leading healthcare, we also offer life insurance through MetLife, vision through VSP, and dental insurance through Delta Dental. All of our medical insurance providers deliver premium features, access, and customer care.

Potential Office
Flex Time

Given the hands-on nature of robotics as a discipline, very few of our roles can be performed 100% remotely, but we encourage each employee to find a unique balance between remote and in-person work that works for their job duties and personality.

401k
Investment

Our employees have access to 401k investing through Human Interest, with thousands of investment portfolio options available. We contribute 3% of each employee’s income into their 401k, even if they choose not to contribute. We want to help our employees prepare for the future.

If you were in a very large company, you would probably be working on a small, tiny feature. Here, we get to see the actual robot go through manufacturing, integration… Everything is in house, so we get to dabble in all these fronts. And that’s something that really excites me.
