In the last few months, leaders have been forced to make monumental changes in workplace technology, process and culture to support remote workers. While hiring remote engineers has long been a tool in the hiring arsenal for engineering leaders, there’s no doubt this overnight shift toward fully-distributed teams has brought up a few new and unexpected challenges. 

The reality is, things may never return to “normal” and the remote paradigm shift we’re seeing today may be part of workforce culture for years to come. But, there are silver linings to the pandemic in the connection it creates between innovative companies and global talent seeking new opportunities. We believe brilliant things can happen when these worlds unite. 

But you don’t have to go it alone. We’re here to support you in building the right structure for your remote team and keeping them happy and productive. That’s why we created The Remote Teams Playbook for Engineering Leaders.

By tapping into our team and network of remote work experts, we’ve curated top advice, insights, and tools into a playbook that covers the A to Z of what it takes for future-ready engineering leaders like yourself to build and sustain rockstar remote engineering teams.
