North American baseball fans are currently immersed in the baseball playoffs leading up to the World Series.
Last year in December of 2013, we (Organimi) made a decision to give up our office space in the Accelerator Center in Waterloo and become a remote company. As a start-up our pie in the sky vision is; virtual organizations, working remotely and remote teams — it was time we ate our own dog food.
Working remotely was not a hard transition; we had already been working on different schedules for the past year. I usually worked the 9am — 6pm route. Our then Business Development and Channel person would work 2 days a week — 10am till 2pm. Half the Dev team would come in at 8pm and work till 8am. I’d always catch someone going home as I’d head in every morning.
