Working Remotely

TG embraces a remote first work environment to promote healthy work-life-balance. While we have offices in Bahrain (where it all started) and in the UAE, we actually have team members located all over the world. It works for us and we hope it works for you too!

Remote work comes with its own challenges and that is why at TG, we spend time collecting feedback from team members in order to continually evolve our virtual work offering and increase collaboration. 

"As a remote-first company, we are always finding ways to improve collaboration through leveraging best technologies and new ways of working. At TG, our technology is a business differentiator, enabler, and key to better decisions."

Working days and hours

We follow standard working hours from Sundays to Thursdays (8.30am to 5.30pm AST) with weekends are on Fridays and Saturdays. However, we do recognize this might be challenging for those based outside of the MENA region and therefore encourage conversations with your reporting manager to understand if there is room for flexibility.
