And if leadership development is important to you, Elastic Path has you covered as they offer development programs for all employees. Annually, the company gives each employee five days off and a $1,500 annual budget to go towards things like conferences, workshops or coaching sessions.  This gives you the opportunity to strengthen your skills as a professional.
