If you’re on the job market or looking for new opportunities in the Vancouver area – we know it can feel like your options are pretty limited. However, there are companies out there transitioning to a 4-day work week that truly set themselves apart from the rest! Let’s get into it.

The coveted 4-day work week is exactly how it sounds – making every weekend a long weekend. For employees, it means greater job flexibility and typically, increased well-being. For employers, it means attracting and retaining talent and oftentimes, achieving greater business growth.

Of course, every model has its pros and cons. But if working Monday to Thursday sounds like your jam, then we have a few Vancouver companies to toss your way.

The simple-to-use platform is currently looking for a Business Development Associate (new grads too!) and a Senior Customer Success Manager in Vancouver. If you’re looking for roles elsewhere, though – there are even more opportunities across their sales, customer success, and marketing teams around the globe.
