How To Build A Remote Company

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

Knuckling Down to Work and Staying Connected as a Digital Nomad

Those of you who have chosen the life of a digital nomad have already embraced the notion of swapping the dead-end 9-5 office job for technology-based work while exploring the world.
