Now remote work isn’t a trend, it’s the new way of doing business. You can find fully remote companies on the rise in almost every trade and industry. The world is becoming more connected, and the Internet makes it possible for us to collaborate with people from all over the globe.
But there’s another trend that’s been on the rise in recent years:
Fully Remote Companies.
A fully remote company is a company that does not rent physical spaces and organizes its team to operate in a remote-only environment.
GitLab uses the term “all-remote” and defines it in this way
💡 “In all-remote companies, there is no effort placed on trying to coordinate team members to a given time zone. Rather, a bias towards asynchronous communication encourages documentation, discourages synchronous meetings as a default for collaboration, and provides greater flexibility for each member to determine the working hours that best suit their lifestyle.” - GitLab
GitLab is the world’s largest all-remote company. GitLab is a distributed team, with over 1,200 team members in more than 65 countries. They have no company-owned offices anywhere on the planet.
They are hybrid remote, meaning they allow remote work but still, own physical offices, and some of them require their employees to go there for a fixed number of days.
