I've worked as a freelancer with Upwork while backpacking through Europe. I've traveled x countries in y months while making z. I was associated with a couple of exciting long term projects and met some amazing people at work.
I was convinced remote work was right for me after that. I fully embraced the lifestyle after I started Goscale in 2017.
Yes, at Flexiple our tech team is remote. Further, we consistently work with freelancers from our network who are located across timezones. It is an interesting dynamic that poses challenges but also enforces discipline like nothing else I have experiened before.
