It does sound weird, especially for someone who only travels to and from work. For people that have in-office 9-to-5 jobs, the idea of being able to have a meaningful job and not being attached to a cubicle, a water cooler and an identification badge sounds too good to be true.

How To Build A Remote Company

The following is a guest article from Jan Schulz-Hofen, Managing Director at Planio for Toptal.

The Importance Of Remote Work Explained In 13 Tweets

Here at The Wayward Road, we have been talking about the importance of remote work for years. It’s something we’re obsessed with, and believe to be not only the future of work, but that it should be the present reality as well.

We believe that the times of having to move to a different city just to be able to commute everyday to a physical office should be long gone by now.
