There are a lot of little things that we do to make the remote model work for Kinsta. However, at a high level, there are at least five things we're intentional about doing to create the remote first culture we strive to maintain. First, we push all collaborative communication into Slack and make as much of it public as possible. Second, we place a heavy emphasis on detailed documentation, both internally and in our public-facing knowledgebase. Third, we maintain routine (weekly, monthly) touch-points for live communication using video calls. Fourth, we get as much of the team as possible together in person once a year. Fifth, if something isn't working, we aren't afraid to change.

After I started a branch in Kyiv for a previous company, it just made sense. Especially since I spent my teen years on open source projects, doing anyway "remote work", synchronizing over IRC, it just felt natural. I didn't even understand what the "fuss" over remote work is - it's just the way any open source project works.

It made sense based on our previous experience building a company in San Francisco. We did not want to go through the same hassle and decided to jump on remote work cold.

I integrated remote work for my company after taking into consideration the long recession in the state of Alaska, and the unpredictability in the digital construction industry.
