Discussion on: Should a Junior Developer start with a remote job?

Well, it is not the same experience for everyone, but I can say that it works for junior's, but it depends entirely on the company and its culture. You should study the company before. Many say they are remote, but they are not. I am a junior developer and I work for a startup with half of the devs working remotely and we work very well. I only go to the office once a week, for example, but I don't have to.

We do pair programming every day (this is usually a good sign that the company is good for junior's) and Code Review. Some of my colleagues even say that, from their previous experiences, working remotely is more productive and the teams communicate better. So, I recommend, especially because having the experience of working remotely is definitely becoming a very important skill.

Good luck!
