Trello vision about remote workforce

In their own words in a Remote.co Company Q&A interview with Stella Garber, VP of Marketing at Trello. June 2015.

I want to highlight the main points at interviews:

  • How important is remote work to your business model?
    Allowing remote work is an essential element of our ability to hire the very best people, regardless of where they happen to live, to build the best possible product.
  • What do you consider the biggest benefits of a remote workforce?
    Having a remote workforce gives us the ability to have the most talented workers, and also the ability to focus on productivity. Being in an office means being surrounded by distractions, whereas remote teams can focus on getting projects done. It also empowers people to get work done at times when they are the most productive- not necessarily a 9-5 schedule for a lot of people.
  • What were the main reasons to integrate remote work into your workforce?
    We wanted to recruit the top talent without worrying about geographic barriers since most work can be done collaboratively via tools like Trello and Slack these days.
  • What is the hardest part of managing a remote workforce?
    Ensuring a consistent company culture and keeping everyone feeling connected.
