Remote Work Experience

Yes, I have worked remotely some years ago and also with companies that had teams in other locations, so even if I was not fully remote myself, I did have to support a team in remote locations. Now, I'm working for a fully-remote company.

I think these are 3 important parts to being successful as a remote worker

Communication - or over communication, I have found that this is key, especially written communication, being able to document things and be super transparent and up to date. Being independent - specially if the team is distributed across time zones, you need to be able to tackle and solve issues even if the other person is not there to support or tell you what to do Resourceful/Self-taught, finding answers, being proactive and making sure to find whatever info is needed to complete the work, not being afraid to try things or ask questions

My Remote Tools Stack

Slack, Notion, calendar, diverse integrations to Slack,

Here's how I plan to contribute to The Remote Clan

Sharing knowledge or supporting others if needed, exchanging ideas and ways to improve remote work, and best practices. I am also and advocate for Diversity and Inclusion, so that's a topic I could add value in. I am a coach as well so happy to support with appropriate questions if someone needs a listener and challenger to their ideas.

Here's what I want to gain from The Remote Clan

By networking and learning from others, what they've done and what has worked and not worked. Maybe learn of cool tools to be more productive, or how to deal with isolation? I manage a remote team and I don't know the laws and best practices in all those countries where we have people so maybe having other connections in those countries to get insights or where to look for answers.

These are the 2 best topics to start off a conversation with me

Diversity and Inclusion is always a key topic for me, but I'm quite open, mainly topics relate to people, culture, management, learning and development
