Work Hours

We work hard, but there are no “death marches”.  Except for critical “all hands on deck” operational issues that cannot be resolved by DevOps.  You will not be expected to work nights or weekends as a normal occurrence. 

Work-life balance is a core value of the engineering team.  We want everyone to enjoy a rich life experience that includes family, friends, hobbies and just plain relaxing.

That being said, we work intensely and collaboratively 9-10 hours a day, Monday through Friday.  Our team will always be in startup mode, no matter how many years we work together.

We are also flexible when life gets “real” and requires your focus on something other than your profession.  Doctors appointments, special events with the kids, family commitments and etc.   No problem.
