The Remote Teams Playbook for Engineering Leaders

Remote leadership is today’s most pressing skillset

Even without today’s forcing factors, remote work has long been a foregone conclusion in the engineering world. The massive imbalance between supply and demand – an estimated 1M unfilled engineering jobs in 2020 – means that thousands of fast-growing technology companies are already building remote teams in countries across the world.

But, the remote work paradigm has shifted faster than anyone expected. As your remote workforce grows, effective remote leadership is one of the most critical skills you can develop for your team and your organization.
