Once a remote company grows over 100 headcounts, meetings can start to get tricky. Exchanging more than 4-5 emails -only for setting a 30 mins meeting- is a waste of time. Calendly is a great solution for getting everyone on the same page.

Remote Unplugging Tools


My first off-work, remote worker-friendly tool review is Sofa. Remote working is not easy, it’s definitely not taking a sip from your mojito next to a pool with your laptop as it’s pictured in Google image search. Remote working is an ass flattening experience so unplugging is equally important for your long-term performance. Sofa is aiming to help remote workers organize their off-work time and relax in a well-planned way.
