COVID-19 Work Expectations/Considerations

Most of Blue Flame Thinking’s team has been working from home since the beginning of the pandemic and may continue to operate in a remote/hybrid manner for some time. While we feel confident working remote/hybrid and providing an excellent level of service to our clients, we are a team-based collaborative environment. The ideal candidate should be open to moving into a hybrid work schedule in the near future or be willing to travel occasionally to the office if they do not live in Michigan.
