Flexible Remote?

This means that for most of the time you can work from home if you want. They would expect you to come into the office one day a week to maintain tribal knowledge. They do all go for lunch together on Tasty Tuesday™ but it can be any day. Some others come in for a couple of days, most in engineering prefer a day a week.
