I didn't know Zend had a jobs corner on their website.

Hmm.. i suspect it comes down to accountability (amongst other things). 
I know if I work at home, I am less productive - there are more 
distractions (food, dogs, tv, postman, cleaning $house etc) and 
communicating with colleagues takes effort (as opposed to lobbing a foam 
penguin at one of them).
