Hey friends 👋,

Happy Tuesday! 


Every week I'll send you a summary of the latest teams + jobs that offer location freedom, flexible schedules and greater autonomy.

Focus is the default 

The biggest difference between the remote/async teams we share here and legacy teams is a default to focus.

In an office you have to fight for that kind of focus and deep work.

When I was last in an office I was constantly booking meeting rooms to be alone. If I couldn't get a room, I was putting headphones on to keep people from constantly interrupting.

Escaping the office isn't enough though. If your company isn't mostly async and you're being asked to jump into meetings all day long, you'll never get time to do deep work at home either.

Remote/async teams know that sending a Loom is more efficient than asking people to schedule a call.

They know that most projects can be moved forward via written documentation. Flexible schedules designed around time to focus will achieve the same, if not better, results.

  • Tell us about what you do and where your team is located.
    What we do is we build a virtual office for remote teams so you can move around a virtual office, you can only hear and be heard by people around you. So that's where you can hang out with your team. 

    Our team is located all over the place. America, Brazil, Colombia, Canada, Trinidad.
     
  • What's a modern benefit you offer your team that isn't mainstream yet?
    Its going to sound funny but how obsessive we are with the quality of the people we hire is the modern benefit we offer. We think of it as a perk - you´re surrounded by absolutely world class people. 

  • Tell us about your approach to meetings vs async communication?
    We actually do believe in synchronous communication but that doesn´t mean meetings. I think people tend to conflate meetings and synchronous communication but Teamflow lets you have synchronous communication that is not a meeting. It´s actually a lot more efficient than both meetings and async because it´s like two minutes instead of thirty and its more efficient than async because you´re immediately unblocked and it´s just much faster to talk thank to type. 

  • What's your favourite tool for remote collaboration?
    Teamflow :)

  • Can you give us one prediction for the future of work?
    You know how we hear these stories about when people didn´t travel more than 20 miles away from their hometown? It´s just so crazy to us. I think that in 10 or 20 years, no more than that, our story will sound equally crazy to our grandkids - that we used to only work for people within 20 miles of where we lived. So that's the future of work. I really think that we´re creating the first city with 2 billion people. It's a city on the internet. So as a result, finding a new job is going to take you five minutes. Finding an employee is going to take five minutes. It´s just going to be a hundred times easier to hire and to be hired by people.
