Flex-ish schedule: As long as the majority of your hours take place between 9–5 on Mon–Fri, you should be all set.
Hybrid-ish work environment: The majority of your week will be spent in office, but if there are some days where that’s just not going to happen, that’s chill. Overall, we treat you like a human. But, a human we want to be able to talk to and collaborate with on a consistent basis.
