    How does Momentum celebrate success?

    We're bigger than just our team and we celebrate wins with our students at our Demo Days. It's a day where students share the fruits of their labor and it's always amazing to see them realize what they've accomplished.

Benefits & Perks

  • Dog friendly environment
  • Downtown Parking (Raleigh & Durham)
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield HSA Plan
  • Competitive Salary
  • We offer 15 vacation days a year plus holidays. These days are for you to take a vacation and unwind away from work. We will be diligent in not contacting you while you’re on vacation. Enjoy your time off! We believe it’s healthy for you to take it and encourage employees to take all their allotted days. (Due to the nature of the work, vacation time may be limited during the duration of a course and advance notice will be required to allow us to plan.)

  • Our team interacts with students daily. If a student has to miss a day because they are sick, it is a big deal. If you are sick, we need you to stay home. Sick days are not considered vacation days, and we have not assigned a limit. We trust our employees to know when they need to stay home to get well and not spread illness. 

  • We also have parental and medical leave policies.
