Things to know about working at a remote team & async communication

All-remote work promotes:

  • Hiring and working from all over the world instead of from a central location.

  • Flexible working hours over set working hours.

  • Writing down and recording knowledge over verbal explanations.

  • Written down processes over on-the-job training.

  • Public sharing of information over need-to-know access.

  • Opening up every document for editing by anyone over top-down control of documents.

  • Asynchronous communication over synchronous communication.

  • The results of work over the hours put in.

  • Formal communication channels over informal communication channels.
