re: Engineering Culture in a Remote Team VIEW POST


This is a great idea. Maybe something around the following: learning/sharing/training culture, team communications, advancement


Thanks Steve – I think that's great! I will have my culture questions as checkboxes (on/off = exists in their culture or not) as they need to be available from the filters when you're searching remote teams:

I'm trying to phrase learning/sharing/training as an on/off switch, what do you think:

Learning & Sharing

Would be also good to know how team communications happen (sync/async? chat app? email?), but I don't know how to phrase it as yes/no for the filters.

Maybe I need to ask this on the about page separate from the engineering culture (I have different sections: about, benefits, tools, cities, jobs, engineering culture).


The binary choices and simple design for these items make sense, especially if this is a labor of love. "Learning & Sharing" is good. Your users will get it.

When I mentioned communications, I was actually thinking about global teams and timezone complications and if that made it hard for remote workers. Maybe "Good team communications support?"

Is the site meant for pure remote companies or companies that support some remote work?

Yes, maybe something like this – thanks!

It's for both really! 100% and partly remote.

I've been thinking how to ask this from companies – how remote are you? I guess % is one option, but it makes it too complicated I think (we're 60% remote). I currently have a checkbox:

Remote first – hiring and working from all over the world instead of from a central location

and you can find companies based on that. I think that's enough. Probably I don't care to search for companies who are 30% or 50% remote, but I would like to to know if they are in a "remote first" mindset or not (office + two remote devs). Also, this % changes all the time!

Anyways, all comments about are very helpful! It's work in progress.


I think this is awesome!! I agree with Steve: Learning & sharing culture is huge.
