Working at Switch

This is a 3-4 day per week role for a 6 month contract.

We are a fully remote team spread out across Melbourne, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Ireland, Jamaica & Canada. Don’t worry, we aren’t that big - we have just one team member in each of those locations!

Your working hours are flexible. The 20-30 hours a week (based on 3/4 days a week) can be broken up however you like. Do you prefer working at 5am in the morning? No worries. Want to schedule your day so you can have an afternoon nap? Go for it.
