As a new company we could early adopt and bet on #RemoteTeam setup without cultural baggage derailing us. Our building blocks for developing remote working culture are:

  • Hiring people who are self sufficient, self-disciplined and excel at video and written communication to work remotely
  • Set up periodic ceremonies ( #DailyStandup, #Grooming, Release calls and chats etc) to keep the company rhythm / heartbeat going across remote cells
  • Regularly train your leaders to take into account remote working aspects of organizing f2f calls, events, meetups, parties etc. when communicating and organizing workflows
  • And last, but not least - select the right tools to support effective communication and collaboration:
  1. All feeds and conversations come together in Slack
  2. #Agile workflows in Jira
  3. InProductCommunication and #CustomerSupportChat in Intercom
  4. #Notes, #Documentation and #Requirements in Confluence
  5. #SourceCode and ContinuousDelivery in Bitbucket
  6. Persistent video streams between locations, demos, meetings run on appear.in
  7. #Logging and Alerts in Papertrail

We first began using Papertrail largely because of the plug-and-play integration they provided with Kubernetes. Being able to launch a single daemonset and see logs in a few seconds was a strong demonstration of its capabilities and it's continued to be valuable any time we need to drill into alerts.
