What’s Omni Like?

The Omni Group is a rewarding but nontraditional place to work, and our compensation packages reflect that. We offer the usual range of traditional benefits to employees:

  • Competitive salaries.
  • Bonuses, based on our revenues and profitability for the year.
  • Stock options. (Note that we are not aiming to become publicly traded.)
  • 401(k), with company matching.
  • Vision and dental coverage.
  • Life and disability insurance

While our entire team has transitioned to working remotely, Omni is located in rainy Seattle, possibly the most beautiful city in North America and where we look forward to seeing each other in person again one day! The air here is still clean, the people are still friendly, local brands are still more popular than national brands, and music festivals still feel like they are for the people.
