Working Without Borders

Brenna Loury on embracing an async remote culture at Doist
How an asynchronous remote team is different from a remote team where everyone has 100% time zone overlap? What are the advantages and pitfalls? In a team organized around not being interrupted, who responds when there's something urgent? These and other questions were the subject of our conversation with Brenna Loury, Head of Marketing at Doist (maker of Todoist and Twist). Doist is one of the first fully async remote teams, and they mean it -- Twist was built to support an interruption-free culture. Don't miss this episode.

Darren Murph on leading a remote culture at GitLab
How to manage a fully-remote team of thousands at scale? How to manage the performance of remote workers? How to make a team feel connected when they have never seen each other face-to-face? What's the best first step that a company wanting to transition to remote should do? These are some of the topics that Sergio covered in (an appropriately remote) conversation with Darren Murph, Head of Remote at GitLab, in our second episode of Working Without Borders, Get on Board's podcast.

Kiranjit Sidhu on managing distributed teams at Facebook
How can remote work be successful? Can distributed teams work in harmony and well-coordinated across the globe? How to manage the issues of time zone differences? How can teams manage themselves, being far away from the headquarters? These are some of the topics that Sergio covered in conversation with Kiranjit Sidhu, Director of Engineering at Facebook, in FB’s offices in Menlo Park, in our first episode of Working Without Borders, Get on Board's podcast. Kiranjit has been leading Engineering for the Growth and Ads teams — arguably two of the most crucial teams for making Facebook what it is today — across Singapore, the Bay Area, and Seattle (and previously Vancouver).
