Cockroach Labs has an office-first approach, with Roachers coming into one of our offices on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday and working flexibly the rest of the week. While we’ve learned valuable lessons working remotely, nothing can replace the connection, creativity, and fun that occurs when Roachers get together and we are committed to fostering a workplace that encourages collaboration and allows us all to do our best work.
