becker&mayer! Halloween 2013

becker&mayer! (along with our educational toy division, SmartLab Toys) has always fostered an exceptionally creative, fun, and collaborative company culture. You won’t find any reserved parking spaces or business suits here, but you will find an enthusiastic group of people who truly enjoy our jobs and the products we create. Our biggest event of the year is our day-long Halloween celebration, which includes pumpkin carving, costume and decorating contests, and trick-or-treating (yes, for adults!). We’re also a dog-friendly company, exemplified by the leadership position of our CCO (Chief Canine Officer), Scout, and her four-legged advisors. And we should mention that our founder, Jim Becker, wears socks with his sandals.

We strive to provide our employees with a broad range of high-quality benefits, including full medical, dental, and vision coverage, long-term disability, flexible spending accounts, subsidized ORCA cards and vanpools, group life insurance, and an excellent 401(k) retirement plan. We also have a very generous vacation plan, and we encourage employees to make use of it!

Our office is located in Bellevue, Washington, just across Lake Washington from Seattle and within walking distance of major bus lines. For those who drive to work, we’re right off Highway 520, with ample free parking.
