Location: Encinitas, California
Number of Employees: 130
Digs: Offices are in a wood barn built in early 1970s. It’s Encinitas, so of course there’s a rack for surfboards and an outdoor area to dry wetsuits—plus showers to rinse off in after a lunch surf session.
Culture: Dogs lying around the office, surfboards and bikes scattered about, professional surfers and skateboarders (who come in for product assessments) roaming the hallways, and not a tie in sight—that’s Nixon. Of course, staff members work hard and put in long hours to get the job done, but are rewarded with a flexible schedule that allows them to fit in real life too.
Sweet Perks: Free concert tickets; discounts on surf, skate, and snow equipment; and the occasional ski resort trip each year. But there are also Ball Park days, where the staff BBQs at company HQ, then hops the coaster train to a Padres game.
Now Hiring: Customer service representatives, product managers, designers, and merchandisers, among other positions
