Are you considering expanding outside of the local hiring pool, as hiring locally can be hard in today’s market? Maybe you’re a developer wondering what working for a remote company would be like? Or do you simply wish your workplace and workflows were flexible enough to allow you to work more from home?

So how do you collaborate across distances? What tools and techniques can help?

Don’t worry! Alexandra Leisse is here to show us how she’s built up a distributed development team at VIBBIO.

This talk is in English.

### On building a healthy remote culture

When VIBBIO rebuilt its product team from scratch in 2018, we made the conscious decision to embrace a fully remote setup. This gave us an advantage in recruiting but brought a significant change for the company.

This presentation takes a look at the challenges we faced, the lessons we learned, and gives some insight into how our efforts has changed VIBBIO for the better.
