High paying part-time tech jobs
Yes they exist!
Part-time work is becoming more prevalent at prominent tech companies as employers seek to broaden their pool of employees and find any edge they can in hiring. Here are three companies boasting part-time roles.
Amazon continues to be one of the most aggressive hirers in tech, and their Part-time Tech pilot is a reflection of how employers are getting more creative with their job options. As part of this pilot, “entire teams will be part-time”, work 30 hours a week. “will still receive the same benefits as employees scheduled for 40 hours per week.” As of this post, the page lists both developer/engineer and program manager roles.
Google offers a formal program for part-time work, however you cannot apply for these roles directly. You must be an established full time employee first before requesting a shift to 60% or 80% time which results in a proportional compensation cut. Most benefits are still maintained. Though most common for individual contributors, it’s also been done by engineering managers.
While not necessarily part-time, The Wanderlust Group is a successful startup that has embraced the trendy four day work-week. They’ve been able to grow remote, 4-days a week, and have a work culture that matches their product that encourages people to enjoy recreation and be outdoors.
