Maybe 2040's? I assume this is set in the future, although the only real hint of that is the Severance tech itself, which we couldn't do today technically, and probably not legally. Or of course it could be an alternate past, like in the movie Brazil -- set "Somewhere in the 20th century". Some of their tech seems outdated (e.g. CRTs).
I think it's supposed to take place about 2020-ish. We see shots of Mark's drivers license in the little drawer when he swaps his stuff for his badge. His DOB is in 1978 and his license expires in 2020.

I've seen people speculate that it actually takes place in the 90's, based on all the old tech inside of Lumon, but they have cell phones in the outside world, plus the drivers license dates, plus in the episode when they went to the Perpetuity Wing, they said Jame Eagan (Helly's dad) took over the company in 2003, so it's definitely after that.
