At FTA DevBase we are always striving for the best, and we are always improving the work-life balance for our people. That is what we offer:
Will I need to go to the office?
No, not ever. We are a fully remote, distributed company. Unless there is an exceptional request from your client and you totally agree with that.
Although we are a mostly remote, team members in VietNam like going to the office 2 or 3 times a week.
Do I work from 9am-6pm? What time zone?
For the most part! Although we have flexible working times, those are the standard working hours for all LATAM countries, since they are inside US time zones.
We always encourage collaboration with other team members and stakeholders which is why 9am-6pm is generally the working hours.
However, there is flexibility to work earlier or later as long as you’re attending the sprint ceremonies and available when the rest of your team is.
BTW: 9 to 6 includes lunch break 🍽️
Do we work on Saturdays?
NO! Unless your contract includes some sort of on call schedule (which we have yet to need) 🗓️
Bare in mind please, that sometimes projects gets stuck 🙃, production goes down 👎. Depending on you role and other factors, you may need to support the team. If that is the case however, we encourage you to take it easier on a slower day of the week to compensate. 😄
Is the payment in local currency?
No, we will always pay your salary in USD.
When will I get my payment?
Payments are sent at the end of each month and generally arrive between the 1st and the 10th of each month.
In some cases the first payment gets delay by banks, but is uncommon.
, that will reflect any given update, like salary reviews
But most cases your contract by itself, is long term, without an end date.
After a year will I get find myself out of job?
Most likely no, your current contract will not end after the 12 month, it will continue until it’s terminated or, in case we determine a new salary plan for the next 12 months we will sign a new contract amendment with these new terms.
