India Credit Card Challenger Start-up Rolls Out a 3-Day Work Week

slice becomes the first company in India to launch a 3-day work week program. Engineers, product managers, and designers under this program will be offered competitive salaries & the flexibility to work from anywhere.

In a move to explore the future of work, slice, India’s credit card challenger startup rolled out a 3-day work week under its “Code in 3” program.

Under the program, slice will hire full-time engineers, product managers, as well as designers to work on the company’s major projects such as decentralized products, stocks and alternative investments, and BNPL. The team will be offered competitive salaries and will have the flexibility to opt for working from anywhere. Even with working hours limited to 20 – 25 hours every week, there will be no cut in employee benefits offered.

Commenting on this unique opportunity, Rajan Bajaj, Founder and CEO, slice, said, “There is a large group of driven and competitive people who are looking to work on projects which interest them. But, find it difficult to balance it with their standard job. slice’s vision is to provide the team with the flexibility and means to innovate. By adopting an agile approach to work we want to eliminate anything that adds no value while avoiding unnecessary bureaucratic reporting.

“This program will not only provide broader exposure to different technologies but also give people a chance to broaden their work portfolios. Our aim is to bring in at least 100 folks in the next 1 year with a projection of hiring 1000 team members over the next 5 years under the program. We have some interesting projects in the pipeline for whoever is up for the challenge”

Currently, slice has 450 employees and is ramping up hiring for the next year. With a product-first approach, slice is gearing up to launch some exciting developments and make financial services even more fun & interactive for millennials and Gen-z.

slice is India’s largest credit card challenger to pay bills, manage expenses, and unlock rewards. The company currently has around 4 million registered members with an average age of 25, making them a market leader in a fast-growing segment.
