The cost of building a startup continues to get cheaper and cheaper, and one of the big drivers of that is the ability to build a team of people all over the world. Building a fully remote team gives you access to talent that would otherwise be completely out of reach. But it doesn’t come without costs (figuratively and literally).
Working remotely isn’t something anyone can do and building a product remotely has challenges that are very much unique to remote teams. So how do you build a remote team? How do you build a company culture around a group of people who rarely see each other face-to-face? What processes work and which ones don’t?
