Unfortunately, the company does match, but it only vests
20% every two years.


You need to recheck the vesting schedule.

To my knowledge employer contributions to a 401K deferral plan are either on a 5 year vesting schedule where 20% of contributions vest each year or a 3 year cliff vesting schedule where all employer contributions vest after 3 years.

There can be some limitations regarding when the employee is first eligible. Check with HR.
