At Cuddli, we’re trying to decide whether we should remain concentrated in Zagreb and Los Angeles, or whether we should be open to remote workers in other locations. I’ve been following @Buffer closely since they’re sharing an awful lot about their journey, but it’d be good to know who else is both scaling and doing so in a distributed manner. How do you manage the challenges?
I wrote a little about how we got started, the challenges we’ve faced and the challenges new startups can face here: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/distributed-team-really-you-robert-walker?trk=prof-post. In particular, I’m interested in cases of failure; what didn’t work? Is there a point where distributed becomes too distributed? I’m also interested in cases of teams that started out distributed but eventually consolidated to one location.
Looking forward to learning from this awesome community!
