So i should kiss this dream goodbye:/

It's hard to measure "Google-like 20%" of the time but your best bet is probably a Series C start up.

Not the same but heard Spotify has Hack Weeks and other things that in effect are similar. Prolly less than 20% time though.

can confirm we do have hack weeks as a formal 20% proj, the program is well structured and projs do get alot of attention esp in the R&D org. but also generally speaking, spotify has a flat org so everyone works tgt for most proj. culture promotes taking initiatives with people around you to build something new. its also how ppl get promoted so it’s the norm to always do smth “innovative” in addition to your day to day. can be good and bad depending on how u see it we also have mentorship program where they match you with a ‘’spotify mentor’ based on your interest/ skills you wanna develop. imo its a good way to explore other career paths and most folks i see end up transferring to mentors’ teams to do smth new!

Question for sisters from a brother: when married or if you’re already married, do you plan to contribute financially for big things like mortgage?

This is only for the peace of mind it would give us. Also wouldn’t make sense if my wife was in a time consuming high stress career but not contributing in the home or financially. Make sense?
