What people are saying
"I think there's actually a deeper question, what is the balance between work, life, and time to be creative. When you spend all your time hacking away at a backlog you're not learning. At Focused we want you to have creative time, and time with your family/friends. That's why we offer Idea Hours and have a strong culture of 8 hour days, no more!"
