Agile Engineers Wanted at Dow Jones

Feb. 7th 2018

If you're an engineer, I'm sure at some point in your career you've held a job where taking time off just isn't an option. There are too many projects to complete, and you can't justify a lengthy vacation because it means missing this deadline or that conference. Forget taking time off to start a family or take care of an elder family member, life outside work just doesn't exist.

Luckily, it's not like that at Dow Jones.

Not only does Dow Jones have a Returnship program that gives professionals who have taken an extended break in their career an opportunity for a fresh start, but they offer flexible work with generous time off and parental leave for all. Dow Jones even hired a woman at 9 months pregnant to lead their tech team- talk about agile!
