When social distancing is not in place, the Braven team gathers in the office three days a week. Therefore, we will require teammates to live within commuting distance of one of these 5 hubs: San Jose, Chicago, New York City, Newark, and Atlanta. Each teammate can use two flex days of their choosing per week to work remotely. We believe in the magic, connection, and collaboration that happens when people work together face-to-face and we believe in giving people flexibility to focus, balance personal priorities, and save themselves two commutes per week.
