A few years ago people viewed remote working as a trend, but we’re seeing more and more companies welcoming remote workers or opting to have fully distributed teams — so it seems this trend is actually here to say.
Remote work isn’t for everyone, nor is it for every company. That being said, Echobind is a 100% distributed team, and here are a few reasons why we love it:
As I already mentioned, working remotely isn’t for everyone and it certainly presents unique challenges. Thankfully, we’re able to solve for many of them with the right tools (a few of which you can find in this blog post about onboarding).
P.S. You’ll note I said we’re a distributed team instead of a remote team because while we don’t work side by side in an office, we don’t feel remote because we’re constantly collaborating. We might be physically far apart, but we’re still very much connected.
