# Work schedule

Working days are from Monday to Friday. The support team has a duty schedule on weekends.

# Work hours

  • There are 8 daily working hours, a total of 40 hours per week. Everyone chooses the work schedule for themselves, with the exception of technical support. CS-team works according to the agreed schedule.
  • If you work together with a colleague, or you know that your help may be needed, let everyone know in Slack in #workspace that you need to leave. If known, indicate the approximate time of absence, for example: Отойду на 40 минут.
  • If you are arranging an appointment or call, add an event to your work calendar and invite all the participants.
  • At the beginning of the working day, greet your colleagues in Slack, this will mean that you are available at work, you can be reached out.

# Request time off or vacation

There's no limit for time offs, take as many as you need.

For long-time leaving please follow the following agreements:

  • All the opened tasks must be closed or distrubuted to your peers.
  • Try to avoid taking a leaving on the same dates, as your peers already taken. That's more related to @cs-team.
  • Make sure your team doesn't rely on your on these dates. For example, if a big release is scheduled on these dates and you were involved in developing a core feature in it.

How to request:

  • Type /vacation in Slack.
  • Press Request leave and follow the instructions.

TIP

December 31 and January 1 are our traditional days off. There is no need to ask for a leave on these days.

# Recommendations for remote work

  • Take care of your working environment:
    • Quiet separate room at home or a coworking.
    • Stable internet with low latency is a must.
    • Stable table and chair. Rotating chairs cause lower back fatigue.
    • High-quality microphone and camera.
  • Follow asynchronous communication ideas.
  • Take regular breaks:
