These are the best ✨new (or otherwise yet to be massively appreciated)✨ tools that help you greatly with remote work:
. @AlmanacDocs is building the future of the documentation tools for teams. Reviews, approvals, merging, history, super great multiplayer. Early days, but super awesome.
. @withopal helps you block out apps, notifications, so you can truly focus or simply disconnect.

Super important, because remote work means work is always just a glance away. Opal helps increase that distance.
Mobile-only, but on desktops soon.
. @yac is voice-only, async messaging. Super lightweight, super fast, and really convenient. With transcriptions, you don't even have to listen to messages anymore.

There are large teams working together on just voice - don't underestimate the power of audio.
. @AvvinueHQ helps you move! As in: in the real world.

Now that you can live anywhere, you still have to move yourself and your stuff. Avvinue can actually help with that.

(They are currently helping my family move countries: happy customer!)
.@remote <= I make this together with an amazing group of people

(how could I not plug my own company?!)
.@RoamResearch is an amazing note-taking app that allows you to build a massive network of all your notes and thoughts.

It's a bit of a step to get into it, but you won't look back #roamcult
.@Tandem_HQ is a great video/audio chat tool, with rooms similar to Discord and great screensharing. The DJ feature allows you to share your favorite music with coworkers, which is awesome
.@slite is building a beautiful knowledge base and collaboration tool, that's both fast and works well in larger teams.
What's your favorite new app?

1/ I've been managing people remotely for 8 years. Here's how to be a better manager in a remote (distributed) team:
2/ First off: being a great manager and being a great remote manager are nearly identical.

Most of these tips would directly translate to an office. If you are a good manager in the office, transition shouldn't be hard.

I.e. you don't need to smell people to manage them.
3/ One-on-one calls:

Have regularly 1:1 calls with all your reports. The point of these calls is to check in with the person, not the work.

What that means in practice is that you don't spend that time reviewing work - you can do that async.

1/ Here is how to be super productive working remotely:
2/ Find your optimal schedule and only work then. This could be e.g. working early mornings until afternoon, a day split in two or more parts, or working late nights.

The best way to discover what works is to experiment.
I work best afternoon-nights.
3/ Block your calendar: when out of your work schedule, block! Avoid ever making exceptions to this (circumstances allowing) if you can.

This is your first defense for a reasonable work/life balance. Even if you work a lot: block hours to sleep, eat and workout.

Want a remote job? Not sure where to start? Here's how you can find one:

2/ Decide what you are looking for:

Companies tend to look for a person that can do a certain job. E.g. "Node engineer", "Data scientist"

Few companies will look at your profile if you don't apply directly to a position.

Zero will do if you can't say what it is you want.
3/ Be realistic. If you have little experience in time, you will have to make up for that in other ways - preferably a way you can prove.

Public work is gold. Blog posts, even e.g. StackOverflow or Dribbble profile can be very good.

For jobs like product mngr this is hard 🤷‍♀️
