2020 saw millions of people adapt to remote working across the globe. As a result of the pandemic, businesses including Twitter and Microsoft, to name a few, have committed to long term remote working plans for their employees.
However, how do these businesses, who may not have had remote work strategies in place before the pandemic – adapt to this way of working? How do new remote companies continue to hire employees worldwide while remaining fully compliant with individual country laws and regulations?
Remote was founded in 2019 by Job Van Der Voort and Marcelo Lebre to simplify how companies employ global talent. Their entire team works remotely in countries around the world. They don’t have any offices because we believe that people do their best work when they are free to work where they choose.
Before founding Remote, Job Van Der Voort worked as a neuroscientist and was the VP of Product at GitLab, the world's largest fully remote company. I invited Job to join me in conversation on the Tech Talks Daily Podcast to share how they help unite international payroll, benefits, compliance, and tax for businesses in one place.
