So many great things happened this year, but I'm especially proud of the big virtual events our team organized 🎉
Remote Career Summit with 2600+ registered attendees
Remote Career Success Week with 1000+ registered attendees
Countless remote work experts came together to share the advice people need to thrive in 2020 💪
I'm so grateful to everyone who shared their knowledge, and excited for more learning and growth in the remote work world in 2021!
There's an air of mystery about Lauren 😮. They haven't filled their profile yet.
That's amazing Lauren. Do keep us posted about the events in 2021 :)
Remote Work Experience
I have worked remotely on and off. For some time, back in 2014, I was freelancing and taking up remote projects. During the first half of 2019, I was working as a remote co-founder.
Hi everyone! I know I'm a bit late here, but here's my intro :)I'm Lauren, a California/Taiwan-based marketer at Arc.dev, a hiring platform for expert remote software engineers. I'm excited to be a part of this community!I've chosen this cat lady GIF because I love cats (although I only have one and definitely don't want as many as in this GIF haha)
Haha, lovely GIF Lauren - glad to have you here 😀
@aldalima here loves cats too - her 2 cats have been her loyal co-workers 🤓
Hahaha I do indeed!
Hi Lauren, nice to have a fellow cat lover here 🐈🧡
I only have 2 but I can see the gif above being a reality one day lol!
I have been a remote worker (freelance) for 12 years (full-time for 7).
Haha yes! Nice to have another cat lover around 😻
The lineup looks great -- super pumped for this event! 😉
There's an air of mystery about Christine 😮. They haven't filled their profile yet.
As a freelancer with several different clients, I don't have a job per se, but the idea of some stability is very appealing, especially when it comes with great companies like those and the benefit of working remotely.
Thanks for posting, my spot is saved :)
I know what you mean. It's great to see more companies hiring for long-term remote roles. Looking forward to seeing you at the event! :)
Sounds really interesting! Just registered and saved this event to my calendar
I work as a freelance writer and digital marketer. Have been doing this remotely for 2 years now.
Awesome! See you there :)
Looks like a great event! Really big names, including our own community member @stephsmith-11 - woot woot!
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.
Yay! See you there. :)
3.5 years ago, I left my cozy consulting job and 2+ hours commute to redesign my life.
Can't wait! :)
Wow, that's a great list of companies - I would be quite interested to know how Microsoft approaches remote jobs. Dropbox has now become a remote company, so that seems more natural. Didn't know Microsoft has a specific remote hiring strategy though.
I am currently travelling during that time - so, do you plan to record the sessions? 😬
I have been working as a full-time freelance developer for ~1 year.
Yes, the sessions will be recorded! If you sign up, you'll be on our list to receive the recordings as soon as they're ready :)I'm really looking forward to interviewing our speakers from Microsoft and Dropbox! I know Microsoft is having some interesting discussions about geo-adjustment of salaries. And Dropbox is completely revamping the way they work in their new virtual-first approach.
