To remote or not to remote: Not a choice anymore!

Hrishikesh Pardeshi @hrishikesh1990

The reality of remote work has been fast forwarded by 10-15 years given the COVID crisis. We were all pushed into remote work suddenly and now, even large companies like FB, Twitter etc. are taking a full-time leap into remote.

Remote working is close to our heart and we've been working on a host of initiatives over the past couple of years - Products, Guides, Podcasts, Stories!

However, we still felt there was something missing. Existing communities around remote work only focus on jobs giving us a gazillion job boards!

They miss the basic human need - to interact. And for us as remote workers, we need to belong, relate and learn from others who understand the journey we are on.

Hence, we set out to build an exclusive remote-focussed community.

Today, I am super excited to share that we are officially live - The Remote Clan 🚀 🔥

The community website you see right now is the culmination of all our efforts over the past year and half. I would really love if you spend some time on the website and share your thoughts 😀
