Rakuten Kobo Benefits
- All Employees
- Full Time
Kobo is a fast-paced workplace with a strong commitment to a healthy work/life balance. We know that for our people to be innovative, creative, and passionate, they need to have healthy minds and bodies. With that in mind, we offer one of the most comprehensive and competitive benefit plans, as well as gym discounts and a personal spending account for expenses related to fitness.
We promote a healthy lifestyle with an annual Wellness Day and regular Lunch-and-Learns, and provide complimentary fresh fruit and other healthy snacks daily. And our new Pooch program is a hit--dogs in the office make everything better.
Booklovers are thrilled to receive a free eReader upon joining the team. We encourage daily reading time as well as host a monthly Kobo in Conversation series with celebrated authors. Check out our photos of some past guests like Chris Hadfield, Alan Doyle, Douglas Coupland, and Ann-Marie MacDonald.
We believe in rewarding all our employees with competitive salaries, performance-based annual bonuses, stock options, and training opportunities. For our growing Kobo families, we offer a maternity/paternity leave top-up, as well as time off for the non-childbearing parent.Kobo’s many other benefits and perks can be found below.

very flexible work life balance
You have to pay towards the benefits and then also have to pay the 20% difference for anything that isn't fully covered.
