Flexible work hours make sense in the tech industry. After all, most of the sector’s jobs are paid in salaries, stock options and commissions — not hourly wages. As long as you get your work done (and show up for the meetings — they’re important too, right?), most companies don’t have much cause for ensuring workers log eight office hours each day.

Flexible work schedules come in all shapes and sizes, often referring to the ability to work remotely or during hours that fit your lifestyle. If flexibility is important to you, keep an eye on these Seattle-based companies.
