RemoteHub was #1 on Show Hacker News

April 2, 2019
I submitted RemoteHub to Show HN and went to sleep. My brain woke me up at 3 a.m. and told me to check Hacker News to find out that RemoteHub was #1 on Show HN and also made it to the front page! Thanks for the upvotes!

Hackers left 38 comments, and one of the topics that came up was how to define a "remote company"?

"One thing would be helpful is listing or explaining the criteria you used to call these "remote companies". One company that has onsite locations with teams that are remote or allows remote work frequently is going to be different than a company like Gitlab which is basically entirely remote." – posted by SOLAR_FIELDS

It's a good point! I've been visiting a lot of "our team" pages lately. Like a lot! Soo many! And it's true that the degree that these companies are "remote" varies a lot. Some of them are entirely remote, but I think most of them are just starting the remote journey and are looking for their first remote team member.

It's very different to work in a team that is working together in an office and you being the first remote team member from a company that has been built remote from day zero.

It can be helpful when a team has been working remotely for years, so they have a lot of remote work processes figured out. On the other hand, it's fun to be one of the first remote members so you can help to set everything up!

I'm building RemoteHub so you would have a place on the Internet where you can look into remote teams and their culture. I hope this helps you to find the next remote team to join!
It was also fun to see that GitLab jumped in and sent me their list of ~260 remote cities which makes them #1 on RemoteHub (currently it's Help Scout with 69 cities). I still need to add these though!
Then, Shaun Trennery found the site and submitted it to Product Hunt where it got 160+ upvotes in a couple of hours and was #1 product of the day until it got removed because I had already launched it 3 months ago.

Hacker News brought in quite a lot of new visitors, and 1,900+ remote teams grew to 2,000+ in the last couple of days! Thanks everyone!
