I’d say it’s the best opportunity a company can have to work with talented people from all over the worldβ€”you’re not limited to post and hire people locally. If your positions are open to the world, then the sky’s the limit.

First, we make sure people can and do take ownership of their work. Teams have the tools they need to succeed and are actively involved in decision-making.

We also place heavy emphasis on communication. We discuss everything openly and honestly and expect team members to share plans, favorite memes, successes, failures, lessons learned and anything in between.

Finally, trust is key. Trust is earned when actions meet words. We believe that done is better than perfect and expect people to stick to deadlines and follow-through on projects. Because we trust people to do their jobs, we don’t need to micromanage or impose endless rules and guidelines.

You'll be learning as you go, because there is no one size fits all. Always be incorporating feedback from remote team members and make sure that everyone has the same level of access to their peers, managers and documentation. 'Watercooler' conversations need to happen over Slack, especially when a part of the team is remote, and another is together at a physical location.
