Employee Benefits

We offer employees competitive compensation and a wide array of benefits designed to be aligned with local reward practices and competitive with those offered by companies with whom we compete with for talent. In the United States, these include health insurance, unlimited vacation, retirement benefits, a generous parental leave program, emotional well-being services through our Employee Assistance Program and a variety of additional resources to support employees’ overall well-being. While the philosophy around our benefits is the same worldwide, specific benefit offerings may vary in other countries due to local regulations and preferences. Read about how DigitalOcean supports employees on our Careers page and on our blog.

Employee Engagement

Employee engagement is key to helping us understand the employee experience. We conduct anonymous global engagement surveys regularly to measure the effectiveness of our people and culture initiatives.

These surveys are managed by a third-party vendor to encourage candor. The results are reviewed by senior management, who work with their teams to determine which actions to take based on survey results.

Talent Development

We believe that employee growth is essential and provide a number of resources and programs to support that commitment. We facilitate employee review cycles on a semi-annual basis when employees have development conversations with their managers. In addition, we offer our employees more than 250 courses and videos covering a wide range of topics from departmental specific skills to leadership and management training.
