How YOU Work is a program of policies, practices, and perks to support your whole human experience as an employee at Oyster.

In addition to people-first policies, you’ll receive Juno points each month that you can apply to anything that helps you show up as your best self at work, whether that’s your internet bill, therapy, a gym membership, or houseplants.


🌍 Our differences make us stronger

🌐 One of the most beautiful things about Oyster is the fact that we come from so many different places, from all corners of the world. Our diverse experiences, backgrounds, and ideas make us a better team.

🦪 When we think about how to support our team, and the experience we want people to have when they work here, we have to consider the diversity of our team. A one-size-fits-all approach to benefits and perks isn’t right for us.

🧘 Different countries have different statutory benefits, different cultures have different norms, and different people have different needs. In order to best support and encourage our diverse team, we’ve created a program to support how you work, not just how we work.

🏛️ Core Principles

🕰  When it suits you: Flexible working hours and Paid Time Off

<aside> 💡 Work should fit into your life, not the other way around.


With the exception of roles that may require specific hours (generally, externally-facing roles such as sales or customer support), you are in charge of your schedule. As long as your work gets done on time, and your team has the support they need, we don’t mind when you do it.

🏕  Where it suits you: It doesn’t matter where you are, as long as you have what you need

<aside> 💡 Our flexible policy means you can apply funds towards your home office, a co-working space, or your neighborhood coffee shop—wherever and however you need to work.


Apply your Juno points towards Headspace, Calm, a gym membership, massage therapy, a home-workout subscription, a new tea kettle, a candle, or whatever it is that helps you feel centered, healthy, and able to do your best work.

❤️‍🩹  How it suits you: Be selfish about your health and well-being

<aside> 💡 How you take care of yourself is just as important as your office setup. We encourage you to support your mental, physical, and emotional health in the way that works best for you. ****


All Oysters have access to Plumm , a mental well-being tool that has globally accredited therapists, chat therapy, on-demand guided meditations, and courses on mental well-being and self-development. Included in your free membership are four therapy sessions per month, and we encourage you to take advantage of them.
