Working ReImagined


The Way We Work

CZI understands that people's lives are multifaceted — you have friends, family, and community commitments that drive the way you live your life, both in and outside of work. The ability to care for yourself and your loved ones is an important part of your happiness and success at CZI. It is important to our mission and the health of our organization to support the “Whole You” and attract and retain amazing employees who drive our work forward.

CZI offers three work modes to support flexible work as a benefit for our employees and as a way to open up our ability to hire great talent from around the country.

Our Guiding Principles

CZI work modes are rooted in four principles that help us create a fair and consistent work experience for all our employees.

  1. Flexibility and Collaboration We prioritize flexibility of where and how we work in order to recruit and retain top talent.

  2. Accountability and Trust We are collective stewards of our resources and responsible for maximizing the impact of our work.

  3. Equity We build tools, processes, and systems to ensure that everyone can do their best work regardless of work mode.

  4. Culture and Connection We are intentional in building opportunities for culture and connection.

Work Modes

As the future of work evolves, so do we. We have a hybrid model with multiple work options for when CZI returns to the office in January 2022 — which we are calling work modes.

  • Onsite

    Applying for a role that requires you to be onsite with your team? Work from our amazing HQ in Redwood - City, CA

  • Flex

    Applying for a role that requires you to be onsite two or more times each week? Or just prefer a mix of being onsite and working from home? Create a flex approach that works for you and your team!

  • Remote

    Work from home! If your role doesn’t require you to be in the office, you can work remotely from anywhere in the United States. You will travel to Redwood City for occasional onsite/office visits.
