Remote 4 Day Work Week Software Jobs
Find the best remote tech jobs from companies with a great work-life balance. Most of these jobs are for 32 hours per week with no reduction in salary
1. Do these jobs pay less?
No, the goal of the 4 day week movement is to reduce working hours without a drop in pay. Therefore, most jobs still offer a full time salary. Most of these companies used to work 5 days and recently switched to a 4 day work week without any changes to salary. Ultimately, you can decide for yourself if you think these positions pay less - and even if they do, you'll be working less time so your effective hourly will likely increase.
2. Am I still entitled to paid vacation / pension etc?
This varies from company to company but in the most cases, the benefits offered by these companies are exactly the same as any "normal" full time job. So you can expect to receive the usual perks e.g. health insurance, paid vacation, 401(k) match etc.
3. How many hours per week are these jobs for?
All job listings are capped at a maximum of 36 hours per week. Most jobs are 32 hours per week, however, which is the typical definition of a "4 day work week" (i.e. four 8 hour days)
4. Should I mention I'd like to work 4 days in my application?
Each job listing is categorised as "open to 4 days" and "advertised as 4 days". If the listing is only "open to 4 days" you should mention that you are interested in being employed on a 4 day week in your application. Either way, it's good to be clear from the start; there is no harm mentioning what job schedule you are looking for in the application.
5. Am I lazy if I only work 4 days per week?
Definitely not. When Microsoft Japan tested a four-day work week, productivity jumped by 40%; so as the saying goes, you're "working smarter, not harder".
