The Ultimate Guide to Remote Work. How to Grow, Manage and Work with Remote Teams About This Guide Working remotely and running a remote team seem like black magic to many. Yet at Zapier, we've been working remotely since our founding in October of 2011. This book shares everything we've learned about running a remote team—our successes and our failures. Beginning as a series of posts on the Zapier blog, this book is an ongoing work about our experiences as a remote team, with much of the book written by Zapier CEO Wade Foster along with chapters from our team members and other remote employees. We'll update it periodically so you can learn how our thinking and processes change as we've grown from three to 20+ people and beyond, and we'll keep the older versions of each chapter archived so you can learn with us over time.

PleasantFish 2.0 - Product Hunt. The 7 Deadly Disadvantages of Working From Home. The phrases “remote work,” “distributed teams,” and “digital nomad” have become trendy on the Internet lately.

A lot of companies and virtual employees (us included) are writing about why it’s so great to be able to work from across the world and on your own schedule. Personally, I’m all for it. I’m writing this article from a beach in Palawan, the Philippines with a healthy layer of sunscreen. Remote work is interesting, and it’s exciting, which means people are more likely to read about it and publicly endorse it.

But there’s another side of the coin. There are companies for whom distributed teams didn’t work out. Since remote work is such a new trend, there are plenty arguments for it and not as many arguments against it from companies who have tried and failed.

Start an indie dev business -- without quitting your job. Tech skills are in high demand. But maybe leaving your full-time IT gig in pursuit of a hot new career as a mobile developer or data scientist isn’t the best bet. Or perhaps your employer doesn’t offer enough growth opportunity and you want to expand your skills and experience without giving up all your benefits and starting from scratch. There’s another, more flexible way to cash in on today’s high demand for tech: Start a part-time business in your spare time. According to "Freelancing in America: A National Survey of the New Workforce," 14 million Americans engage in a part-time business (also known as moonlighting, freelancing, or running a side hustle).

And in tech there is no shortage of part-time projects and contracts on offer, some of which will be in your wheelhouse, while others will provide an opportunity to learn new skills. Get your side business up and running But Creech notes that sacrificing leisure time to build a business is part of the deal. Related articles. Remote Work Stash - Product Hunt. Starfighter: Code.

Which Gigsters are eligible for Fund participation? Gigsters are eligible to earn returns from companies that join the fund in months that they are working on at least 1 project.

What percentage of Fund returns do Gigsters earn? Gigsters earn a weighted percentage of fund returns for companies that join the fund in a given month proportional to their level of activity on the platform that month, as determined by Gigster. For example, if there were 100 Gigsters on the platform in a certain month, each working on 1 project, then each Gigster would receive 1/100th of the returns paid out to Gigsters from companies that joined the fund during that month. Will Gigsters own actual equity in Gigster Fund companies? No. What percentage of Gigster returns do freelancers earn?

The right to future returns from the 1% equity that we have pledged will be allocated to active Gigsters over a 1-5 year period starting on the date of the fund launch. Will Gigsters own actual equity in Gigster? No. No. Yes. Board - Job search and hiring platform.

Emotional intelligence involves self-awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skills. In other words, it's a complicated amalgam that hiring managers have a hard time testing for. As a result, many fall back on gut instincts and subjective impressions.

It isn't always a smart move to leave something so important to such faulty measures. When a candidate has these qualities, they can work well with others and lead change effectively, so it's no wonder why organizations are placing a higher priority on emotional intelligence. And fortunately, even the traditional interview format can be retooled to test for it.

Just about every smart interview candidate has figured out how to appear highly emotionally intelligent, whether or not they actually are. For hiring managers looking to tell a great performance from genuine attributes, a helpful first step is to get out of the office. 1. 2.

Top Places to Find Freelance Work. Posted on 16'16 May Posted on May 16, 2016 along with 1 JUST™ Creative Comment I often get asked where I find my clients and I’m fortunate enough to say “through my blog” however this doesn’t really help those who don’t have clients coming to them. So below I’ve compiled a list of the best resources for freelance job searching. They are resources that have genuine jobs on them and are not agency scams or masks for a website signup service.

The 13 listed here are in no particular order as they all have their own charms. 1 - Simply Hired This is a massive website that has somehow managed to pull in nearly one quarter of a million employers every month. 2 – Behance Job List Behance is a great place to show off your portfolio. 3 – Coroflot This website offers job listings if you just want to hop on and find some work, and it offers the opportunity to upload your own profile and allow employers to come to you. 4 – Krop On this site there are designers with various ranges of talent and skill.

Triplebyte: Helping Engineers Find Great Startups. How to pass a programming interview - Triplebyte. This post started as the preparation material we send to our candidates, but we decided to post it publicly. Being a good programmer has a surprisingly small role in passing programming interviews. To be a productive programmer, you need to be able to solve large, sprawling problems over weeks and months. Each question in an interview, in contrast, lasts less than one hour. To do well in an interview, then, you need to be able to solve small problems quickly, under duress, while explaining your thoughts clearly. Running Triplebyte, I see this clearly. The good news is that interviewing is a skill that can be learned. I fundamentally do not believe that good programmers should have to learn special interviewing skills to do well on interviews. 1.

Enthusiasm has a huge impact on interview results. The problem is that this can be faked. This idea seems facile. 2. A large percentage of interview questions feature data structures and algorithms. 3. Interviewers help candidates. 4. 5. 6. 7. Woo - Know your demand. Know your possibilities.
