First we assess the flexibility options Signal AI provides and then we anonymously survey a statistically significant proportion of their employees to make sure Signal AI is as flexible as they say they are. Our assessment is based on the six key elements of flexibility: location, hours, autonomy, benefits, role modelling and work-life balance.

We ask the hard questions so you don’t have to.

What employees are saying

"I love the unlimited vacation, and summer and winter "work from anywhere" periods. I like the "2 days/week in the office" policy, and the understanding from my manager that some days I occasionally need to start later or finish earlier."
