Funny how I like my job so much more now that I get to work from home. I guess I just don’t like the people/corporate culture.

I was much happier when I switched roles and went from 26 weeks of travel a year to 10 nights out of town and 90% WFH. Been in this roles almost 10 years and have no desire to change or look for another job. Sure I could make more money but I get at least 10 hours a week in commute time back.

Big 4 Audit Quality Role. Engagement team support. No clients, no billing, no direct reports.

I work in a fast growth population (300% in the last year) that does not have a unified approach to work habits (remote work, flexible hours, etc.)

All roles can be done remotely, but there is a strong in house culture for the revenue teams.

My gut tells me this is a pivotal time for executive leadership to take a soft stance on working expectations - but unsure how realistic that is.

Has anyone been in a similar situation, how did you approach it, and what was the outcome? Thanks!

Hello FinTech community!
Currently looking to fill 3 headcount in my team at a London based Series D Unicorn FinTech startup.

Specifically I’m looking for experienced Application Security Engineers.

The team, including these roles are 100% remote, although you must be based in the UK.

If working in an office is more your style, we have the option to book desks on an ad-hoc basis.
We’re currently moving to our brand new office, near London Bridge.

Hope to hear from you!
