Remote Work Round-Up

Dec. 21, 2017

We've been talking a lot about our remote office party that happened last week- mainly because it was a hit amongst our employees, but also because we understand how important events like these are to maintaining the culture we've built here at PowerToFly.

Just because your team (or part of your team) is remote, doesn't mean you have to miss out on all of the fun! Events like these give team members who may never speak to each other during a normal workday, the opportunity to interact on a more personal level. Plus- who doesn't love seeing a full Zoom screen of smiling faces?!

There are lots of ways to celebrate the holidays with a remote team. Some of our favorites include: Dribble's company-wide book exchange (with a virtual reveal), LifeMeetsWork's 'Ugly Sweater Day', and Xerox's virtual recipe share-out. But, if you're really craving a traditional office party, check out your local eventbrite for events like this one that bring remote employees from any company together for an in-person celebration!

Think you'd be the perfect addition to a remote team? Check out these ten openings, or head over to our Jobs page for even more opportunities!

She always has, which is why she enjoyed her part-time job working at the IT department of the University of Colorado while she was studying electrical engineering. (She'd started in computer science, but explains that it "wasn't for her" and switched her major.) She helped students and professors with word processors, basic programming, and software checkout, and took a full-time job after graduation as a UNIX system administrator.
