Parental Leave

Becoming a parent, especially for the first time, is as amazing and fun as it is overwhelming and stressful. We at XMTP want to do what we can to provide the support needed to help our working parents have the time they deserve to bond with their new child, as well as transition back to work.

We offer a competitive supplemental parental leave for all parents and flexible schedules for new parents transitioning back to work.

Here’s what is most important to hear from us about parental leave: Flexibility. Here’s some guidelines about how we see parental leave at XMTP: (these are just guidelines, everything is flexible)

  • Our flexible parental leave is 3 months, which can be taken at any time within the first year of birth.
  • Equal bonding time for all new parents (birth parents, spouses & partners, adoptive & foster parents)
  • We provide additional disability leave for birth parents with flexible return to work plans that are agreed to by all stakeholders.

New parents don’t know what to expect or how to plan for life with a new human. We want to provide just enough structure while ensuring flexibility.
