We decided to start Frontastic as a remote native company.

There are three main reasons for this:

1. Weโ€™ve personally had very good experience with remote work.
2. We make a product that inspires not only customers, but also ourselves and all other employees. This is the ideal basis for a remote company.
3. We believe in diversity; we believe that we need the best people and that we canโ€™t find them in a single country.

In addition, remote work is very ecological because we donโ€™t contribute to jamming the streets every morning and polluting the air with emissions.

Engineering culture

๐Ÿ‘‹ Daily standups
35 remote teams โ†’

Our daily standup meeting is just a bot inside Slack. It asks us every morning about our plans, so that our colleagues have the chance to know. In the evening it asks us about results and our mood.

๐Ÿค Pair programming
20 remote teams โ†’

We often get together spontaneously on a Google Hangouts call. Among other things, it's a good opportunity for pair programming.

โšก๏ธ Agile development

We are not dogmatic about the way we work. We use the methods that seem most appropriate for each situation. When we realize that we need more structures, we create structures. Not before ๐Ÿ˜‰

Remote workplace

โœˆ๏ธ Company retreats
96 remote teams โ†’

Twice a year we meet for three days for a company retreat

๐Ÿ“น Video meetings
7 remote teams โ†’

In preparation for each weekly meeting (which we organize as a video meeting), everyone briefly tells the Slackbot what they want to share with their colleagues. In this way weโ€™re wonderfully asynchronous; if youโ€™re on vacation, for example, you can easily pick up the most important things youโ€™ve missed in the meantime.

Sometimes itโ€™s just nice to work together with others in the same room. We often get together spontaneously. To do this, we simply use Google Hangouts, for all those who have the inclination and time to work together. If you want to have your peace of mind or take a call, just go out again โ€“ quite uncomplicated.

โœˆ๏ธ Meeting in person
2 remote teams โ†’

Currently we meet every four weeks in person. This works because we donโ€™t live too far apart.

Itโ€™s also a great way to learn about new topics or just pair programming. And, of course, it also stimulates a sense of being together.

We try to be as asynchronous as possible. Therefore we don't aspect you to answer even direct mentions immediately.
