What are some fun games for distributed teams?


by @que | 4yr  | 1 comment

Has any played any fun games with their distributed teams? I need to find a game that I can play with my new team to celebrate the completion of a project. I was thinking something like a collaborative version of jib jab (http://www.jibjab.com/). Does anyone know of any?

Do you prefer co-living spaces or hostels or Airbnbs?

 

by @davda1546 | 22h 22 hours ago | 1 comment

We are hoping to become nomads soon and have booked an AirBnB in September in Goa for our first destination. We are considering what would be the best option for accommodation after that. We are trying to decide between co-living spaces, hostels, or Airbnbs.

What are your experiences of accommodation in terms of the following: reliable wifi, social aspect, pricing, cleanliness, cooking facilities?

How do you ensure that you have good WiFi for working whilst travelling e.g. in places like India?

 

in India by @davda1546 | 22h 22 hours ago | 1 comment

We are hoping to travel later this year and we will be working remotely - how do you ensure you get good WiFi in places such as in India where the signal isn't always great? Do you have any tips on where to go/ what equipment you have to get?

How do you find people to meet whilst travelling?

 

by @davda1546 | 22h 22 hours ago | 1 comment

We are going travelling but we won't know anyone out there, what's your best advice for meeting people and socialising abroad? We've thought about the obvious things like Meetup etc, is there anything else you can suggest from your experience?

Best place in South East Asia to live for 6+ months per year

 

in Indonesia by @miklaskroager | 2d 1 day ago | 1 comment

We're looking for a country in South East Asia that can function as our base, mainly for tax purposes. Meaning it will have to be a place where we can stay for the 183 days required without too much hassle.

We've been looking at Thailand, but have heard that it's very hard to do visa runs etc., so what other can you recommend? Indonesia looked like a good option, but the income rate is a flat 20% and very high for the region.

How to get SMS verifications for banks while traveling?

 

by @jackgopack | 5d 5 days ago | 38 comments

Any suggestions for seamlessly receiving SMS Verifications from US financial institutions and other sites while traveling internationally continuously? Wonโ€™t keep my US Verizon account due to cost and currently plan to use local sims at each destination (T-Mobile and Project Fi are NOT an option as they terminate for continuous roaming). In summation, I wonโ€™t have a US mobile account.

Unless Iโ€™m missing something, which is very possible, this appears to be the single most complex issue Iโ€™ve encountered in my preparations, and one that no one addresses. I would greatly appreciate any possible solution that works 100% of the time. Canโ€™t afford surprises in this regard. Many Thanks! Jack.

Introduce yourself โ€” who are you, where are you and what do you do?

 

by @coffeeshopceo | 6d 5 days ago | 670 comments

tl;dr: introduce yourself in this thread.

We must all get sick of the same backpacker travel questions when we meet new friends, I know I do.

You know the ones - where are you from, whereโ€™ve you been, where are you going, what do you do, how long have you been doing it - etc.

The novelty of answering these questions wears off after maybe a week, but theyโ€™re nonetheless insightful and no matter how much we hate them, we find ourselves asking others.

So letโ€™s bring the dreaded backpacker questionnaire to NomadForum and introduce ourselves shall we?

**

  • whatโ€™s your name?
  • where are you from?
  • how long have you been away from home?
  • what do you do?
  • where are you currently?
  • where are you going?
  • what has been memorable for you so far?
  • will you go home anytime soon?
  • what have you learnt during your time as a nomad?
  • [insert your own question here]

**

No need to answer them all if you donโ€™t want to :smile:
But the more you shareโ€ฆ The merrier!

Best SIP/VOIP service for small remote teams?


by @luisplz | 3yr 2 years ago | 5 comments

Hi everyone,

we are a very small remote german company (3 at the moment) but we are expanding and three new colleagues will be working for us in the upcoming weeks/months. Up until now, we used Skype and my regular mobile phone line for all the intern/support and selling calls but since we will have soon other people working for support and selling too, we need to profesionalice that aspect.

In your opinion and experience, what is the best and more cost efficient VOIP / SIP service that we could use? Thanks!

So far I have:
Buffer, Toptal, Maptia & Upworthy - fully nomadic, the employees & founders are always on the go

Basecamp, GitHub, Mozilla - known for their distributed teams and mobility but majority of workforce still in HQ

Can you help me find more? I am doing research for digital nomads infographic.

Hi! We're DuckDuckGo, the anonymous search engine and we're a distributed team. AUA


by @brianstoner | 5yr 5 years ago | 16 comments

Hey everyone,

Thanks for having us! Weโ€™re DuckDuckGo, the anonymous search engine that doesnโ€™t track you.

The company was started in 2008 by Gabriel Weinberg and has steadily grown to a team of more than 20 people serving over 9 million searches a day.

We have a small headquarters in Paoli, PA, but the majority of our team is distributed around the world. Iโ€™m personally based out of NYC and work on the Front-end of the site.

I should be joined by a few others on the team, including: Zaahir, Doug, Chris, Adam and Jag.

Ask us anything!

Once you scale, does your team remain distributed?


by @tprophet | 6yr 5 years ago | 2 comments

At Cuddli, weโ€™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. Iโ€™ve been following @Buffer closely since theyโ€™re sharing an awful lot about their journey, but itโ€™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 weโ€™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, Iโ€™m interested in cases of failure; what didnโ€™t work? Is there a point where distributed becomes too distributed? Iโ€™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!
