A nine-to-five work schedule may be the standard for most businesses, but that’s not the case at these Austin tech companies. In place of the traditional workday, they’ve opted for a more casual work environment with opportunities for a flexible schedule. This could take shape as an ability to work remotely or to adopt a schedule that’s custom to your lifestyle. If that’s important to you, then you definitely need to check these companies out.

Vyopta’s fast-growing team is encouraged to take time off whenever it’s needed. This flexibility demonstrates trust and shows that the company is steadfast in creating a fun, balanced work environment. This approach, however, does not mean the company encourages slacking off. In fact, one of its core values is “GSD,” which simply stands for get stuff done.
