WELCOME TO THE CF CREW

At Connect First, we strive to maintain an open culture in which everyone contributes and feels comfortable sharing ideas and opinions. Our organization is designed to promote interaction across different teams and between all employees. We believe that this free-flowing environment sparks conversation and promotes innovation.

UNLIMITED VACATION

Yes we said it – unlimited vacation.  We believe that playing hard helps you work hard.

FREE LUNCHES

Every Wednesday we get together and eat at no charge to the employees.  Doesn’t that sound delicious?

GYM MEMBERSHIP

Sitting at a desk all day is hard on your body, so we like to pay for ways to take care of it!

FRIENDLY ENVIRONMENT

Connect First is full of friendly people! From Nerf guns to beer to birthday parties, we support each other as well as our customer support team helps customers.

BENEFITS PACKAGE

Healthcare is a necessity to take care of you and your family.  Here we like to make it easy by paying for 75% of your health insurance….And yes we have vision and dental too!

PET FRIENDLY

It’s common to see a four-legged friend roaming the halls of Connect First.  The CF Crew would be incomplete if it wasn’t for our fuzzy companions, it’s why we also offer them health insurance too!
