Maybe a topic that no one really wants to speak about openly - but it might interest some people who are looking at beginning a career in software development etc.
Do we have any statistics regarding the median (or average) weekly work hours for a software developer in Japan?
I know it depends on the actual person, how close the next release is, etc. But there must be a sweet spot between a 35 hr a week boring job and a “how come did you not answer my 4AM slack message” complaint from a manager?
Do you think the majority of software developers work 60 hrs a week? 80 hrs a week? More? Or is this one question that has no real clear answer (and thus ends up being a roll of a dice during the interview process)?
