Compensation & Benefits
At Noble, we believe it’s important that our highly-diverse staff is able to lead a happy, healthy life and have a sustainable career with us. Though salary is a main driver of being able to do this, we think it’s important that the holistic ways we provide compensation and benefits are impressively supportive too.

After working for Noble for six months, parents receive 10 paid parental days for birth, adoption, or foster placement. This is used prior to any days in employees’ personal sick and/or PTO banks during FMLA or unpaid personal leave. Upon return from leave, new parents are gifted five additional parental days.
