Fully flexible hours
Prolific is changing how research on the internet is done. We started by building a marketplace that connects researchers (from both academia and industry) with instant, high quality, global research participants. Now, as a growing team, the bigger vision is to build the most powerful and trusted platform for behavioural research.
Quantitative and qualitative researchers, data scientists, and entrepreneurs all need valid and reliable data sources to make predictions about human behaviour and social change. Thanks to our online platform, researchers collect responses fast, and participants earn cash rewards for themselves or for charity. It takes 5 minutes to start data collection, there's no middleman, and the product easily integrates with any survey software.
Flexible working approach
Prolific has always been passionate about creating and maintaining a flexible workplace. We are a remote-first organisation, meaning you can work from home, from our dog-friendly office hub in Shoreditch, or a local co-working space. We have flexible hours plus shorter hours in the summer and we trust you to give your best to make Prolific succeed. Both contractors and employees are treated with the same internal autonomy. We offer a work from home allowance, and encourage you to make a home office that you love.
And yes, even with all this autonomy, we still love to collaborate with fun quarterly meet-ups and socials virtually and in person. This year our teams have had the opportunity to spend time together in Montenegro, Glasgow, Lisbon, Berlin and more to come!
Scoring against our flexibility index (1 = not at all flexible, 100 = couldn’t be more flexible, 51 is average) using a number of parameters to assess flexibility such as working from home, hours, frequency of travel, benefits, etc.
Scoring against our employee perception index (1 = not seen as flexible, 100 = couldn’t be happier with the flexibility, 51 is average) using a number of more emotional / perception based questions to understand whether employees feel supported and offered what they want. The areas we cover are work-life balance / managerial support / flexible benefits / working environment / and many others.
"I honestly find it hard to believe I'll ever find another company as flexible and employee-focused as this. They've made it almost impossible for me to ever leave, in a good way! Some other notable things I really appreciate: no meetings allowed on Wednesdays, only deep, focused work. And every other Friday is "Wellness and Creative time," where you can work on your own projects, read a book, go for a hike, clean your house, sleep all day – whatever you need to stay happy and mentally healthy."

Approach to diversity & inclusion
Prolific is an equal opportunity employer.
We celebrate differences, it's one of our core Prolific principles. The more diverse and inclusive we become the better for all of us.
Our diversity makes us who we are and drives our success. We want to be a workplace that celebrates differences and where people can bring their full selves to work, free from prejudice.
Our culture reflects this; from our everyday behaviours to the way we remove barriers that prevent people from succeeding in their careers at Prolific.
We are fully committed to ensuring our business is representative of the communities that we serve and are taking actions towards achieving this 💫
What do we think of Prolific?
Prolific started off their accreditation with extremely high expectations due to their brilliant employer benchmark quiz and continued to excel throughout the anonymous employee feedback stage. We had a higher than average participation and the overall feedback was excellent. Candidates should really take note of these combined high scores and the overall flexibility from Prolific, and definitely apply should a relevant role become available.
