Mastering Remote Work
I'm Sergio Pereira. I started working in tech in 2010 as a Software Engineer. And since 2014 I've been working as a Startup CTO. I used to work in an office like most people, but since 2017 I've worked fully remote.
That's what this course is about. I'll tell you about my mindset shift around 2017, when I started hiring and managing people around the world. I'll dive into the details of the processes I use, and tell you how important those have been for the performance of my teams.
In these 6 years, I've pivoted from a meeting heavy culture to the async-first culture I have today. It has some challenges and trade offs, and I'll provide you some materials and guidelines to help you adopt it in your company too.
Who's this course for?
- For leaders, to understand the strategic impact of remote work and how to make their companies competitive in the new conditions.
- For managers, to adopt remote-first processes to run their global teams and hire across time zones.
- For employees, to work remotely in a way that is flexible but also productive, while collaborating with team mates around the world.
