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.
