What kind of offer would appeal to you to work in house rather than remote?

I’m having trouble finding anyone to take in-house software engineering positions. Since Covid, everyone is pretty comfortable working from home, understandably. The line of works requires certain positions to be in house due to physical equipment that needs to be worked on. Not constantly, but enough where in house is needed.

Here’s the current offer I usually throw out to someone with intermediate experience.

Full benefits


14 days PTO excluding weekends

Creative Incentives, limited royalties on completed projects and bonuses

Compensation is usually 95k – 145k

This still hasn’t worked, so what would appeal to you to work in house and come into the office everyday?
