Want work that works for you? Here are 5 tech companies with remote and hybrid teams to give employees flexibility and choice.

Working from home is a norm these days for many professional roles. In 2020 the pandemic forced the world into lockdown, and remote working became the only solution for companies to keep on keeping on.

Today, we can see that loads of roles can thrive successfully regardless of where the work is actually done.

Some people prefer the office to keep their work and life separate; maybe they’ve got a cool workspace that motivates them or they enjoy being social with their team. Others might prefer to work from home because they live far away, have personal commitments, or simply because they work better in their own space. The bottom line is that you know how and where you work the best!

At Hatch, we don’t believe that one work arrangement is better than the other, but if you are looking for a job with a company that gives its employees flexible work options, then read on.
