Since Killer Visual Strategies was founded, CEO Amy Balliett and the company’s leadership team have prioritized employee satisfaction and quality of life by offering flexible schedules and generous benefits packages to all employees. All Killer employees also enjoy a four-day workweek. 


Killer has worked to create an office environment conducive to both work and play, a place where team members can bond and form real friendships. To this end, Killer is a pet-friendly office furnished with local craft beer and kombucha on tap, a snack bar, a coffee and tea bar, a La Croix fridge, and cold brew coffee. To smooth the journey to the office, every employee receives a monthly $100 Commuter Benefit.


Killer also hosts quarterly team parties and activities. We’ve gone bowling, attended Mariners games, and sung karaoke. Once a year, Killer offers a high-end holiday party for its employees; this year, the entire team will travel to Woodinville wine country for a wine tasting and a nine-course private meal at a James Beard award-winning restaurant. During these gatherings, we reflect on our successes and communicate how much we value each other’s work.


Employees’ health and wellness is Killer Visual Strategies’ top priority; we consider it the foundation for a happy and productive team. That’s why we offer comprehensive health insurance, dental, and vision package, in addition to a monthly stipend toward medical expenses, Flexible Spending Accounts, and Dependent Care Accounts. What’s more, we offer $200 per year toward League Lifestyle Spending Accounts, and we host bimonthly Health@Work events, which have included meditation and mindfulness exercises, in-office massages, professional coaching, nutrition advice, and financial advising. Every employee’s desk can be converted into a standing desk with the press of a button, and we have ergonomically designed chairs as well as alternative seating options.
