Careers at Select Star Media Group
We proudly offer our full-time US employees a robust benefits offering, including:
Fully paid medical insurance
For employees in our New York Office, we cover 100% of the premiums for our standard level of medical insurance plan, including coverage for domestic partners, spouses, and families. Outside of New York, we cover the great majority of coverage for all groups.
Life insurance and short/long term disability insurance is 100% covered by Select Star. Employees can choose to purchase dental, vision or supplemental life/disability insurance.
Time off when you need it — and a sabbatical after four years.
PTO, Personal Day, Sick Days? Doesn't matter: we don't formally track time off — take time off when you need it in consultation with your Manager.
After four years of continuous employment, employees are eligible for a sabbatical — one month paid time off, in addition to whatever time off you'd otherwise take that year.
401k with 3% contribution
We'll help you save for the future with a 401k plan. And after one year, we'll contribute 3% of your entire compensation, on top of any contributions you make.
Brand new gorgeous Bushwick office with weekly breakfast and lunch and regular staff events
