Congrats on the launch, Till :)
There's an air of mystery about Shahul 😮. They haven't filled their profile yet.
Thanks a lot!
Remote Work Experience
I've worked in a variety of setups throughout my career - fully onsite, local hybrid teams with a mix of onsite/remote, globally distributed hybrid teams and also fully remote. We're the latter at CoScreen and have figured out a smooth process to get things done together.
We'd love your support again and any feedback is welcome:
Congrats @till @spp-1160 @nicofromtomo @rachel-704 🙌
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.
Thanks a lot! Glad to be able to count on your support!
Congrats, Till. I’m very excited for you and the team 🎊
Yes, ~3 years as a designer.
Great write-up! We're using Loom, Notion and also Miro as part of our creative workshops.
We're just writing a post on how to run virtual workshops with small teams of max. 10 participants where more interactivity is required because we've noticed an uptick in teams who use our own tool, CoScreen, for that.
It enables multiple users to share any application or content simultaneously on a joint canvas. And in addition, anyone can interact with any of them concurrently and workshop facilitators can jump between different CoScreens for breakout groups. Happy to share once the post is ready.
Coscreens seems great! I'd love to see the use case with workshops! Could you share the blog when it's out?
I've actually been thinking about how tools like CoCcreen (or Tandem) could be leveraged and the first thing that'd come to mind is that participants need to download the app, which can be fine in a team but more tricky if it's with clients or people external to the team. But it's true that for breakout groups that can be really hands-on (like design, code or writing), the experience should be amazing!
I have been working fully remotely for the past 4 years, working partly from home, and partly from co-working spaces and cafés. I love the freedom as well as the responsibilities that remote work brings me. The first reason that made me go remote was that I couldn't stand commuting to work 2 hours per day in crowded underground transportation. These were actually two hours of my day that I felt were stolen from me and that I could use to achieve my professional or personal goals. The second...
Will do! And agreed on external parties - getting set up with desktop app only takes 5 minutes but we're already working on a web mode...
Nice! Looking forward to it!
Congrats @pez @claudiopinkus-385 @justin @robertoortiz-768 @ebizfacts @till 🙌
Thanks a lot to everyone over here for your support!
Congratulations on the launch, Till!
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.
Thank you so much!
Congrats on the launch Till! Rooting for you 🙌
Congrats on the launch! Just upvoted.
I work as a freelance writer and digital marketer. Have been doing this remotely for 2 years now.
Thanks so much!
Thanks for sharing! Have upvoted on Product Hunt :)
We're actually launching the public version 1.0 of CoScreen for macOS this week and are opening sign ups for the private Windows alpha 🎈🎈🎈Please let us know what you think on our launch post on Product Hunt today:
Thanks a lot to Hrishikesh & team for the support over the last few months!
Super stuff! Will be a super busy week for you :)
Congrats @till @altimor @robertoortiz-768 @taras @ebizfacts 🙌
Thanks a lot @hrishikesh! Happy to give any member of the Remote Clan early access to CoScreen, just ping me.
I was remote for 6 months or so while working at Uber. It didn't go too well, given that the company is far from remote first.
Congrats everyone! 💯
I have worked remotely for 5+ years now.
Congrats @GabeV @mizan-454 @justin-465 @till @minededekoca @mirandazolot-616 @elisarossi-610 @asyrafql @andrewgertig-567 🙌
Thanks for sharing @hrishikesh
I have been working remotely since 2012 at multinational companies. I also give consultancy to companies to help their transition to remote / hybrid workplaces.
Always appreciate your shoutouts, @karthik and @hrishikesh 👍
FYI, typing 'r' in my browser address bar now automatically brings up RC 😉
Have been working as part of a remote team for the past two years on my latest venture Quidli since Day 1 with varying levels of successes and failures ;)
Haha, the same goes for me 😅
No experience working remotely before COVID-19.

Would love to hear your thoughts on this! Of course saw that Notion is already a part of your tool stack.
Our technical docs are captured in GitLab Wikis, everything product & team-related around CoScreen is captured in Notion.
This works extremely well, the only annoyance is that Notion can’t handle large pages with more than a few hundred blocks which you reach easily if you use it to capture meeting minutes like we do. Hopefully just temporary growing pains.
Ah, I always thought my connection sucked when Notion took forever to load bulky pages. I use it only for my personal notes & writing, so not a lot of pages actually go beyond 100-200 blocks.
Also, now curious to know whether the desktop app performs better than the browser version in such cases. Have you experiemented with this?
We also use notion as a "writing" tool (collaborative docs with medium complexity to be published or sent) as well as a wiki for large projects. We tried to use it as a note-taking tool but it revealed to be more complicated to maintain than anything else. So for daily and personal todos that don't require to be on our backlog, we use https://www.faden.cloud/.
We love the philosophy of the founder and have been very happy with the product.
Thanks for the post. I've predominantly worked with a lot of freelancers/ contractors in engineering roles, so most of my experience may not directly relate to what you're looking for. I'll be happy to share if you feel it is relevant though.
In contrast, @Borisov91 & @tpieper-573 have a lot of experience in onboarding full-time remote engineers. I'm sure they'll have a lot to share around this.
For sales roles, @brendan-33 could share some of his experiences & best practices.
On a general note, I find templates on Almanac helpful. I haven't used any onboarding templates there yet but I'm sure there will be great ones on that too.
Thanks hrishikesh. I have never come across Almanac in the past. Looks cool
Yes, I have been working remotely for the past 7 years
You're right @hrishikesh!
At CoScreen, we're using a scaled down version of GitLab's onboarding issue which is extremely detailed and makes sure there is a smooth process for new team members:
