Burlington (and Vermont) is home to an increasing number of "remote workers" -- folks who live here and use technology to work anywhere in the world. For executives, professionals, developers, designers, analysts, freelancers, and others, remote work provides great new job opportunities. In the 21st century digital economy, more companies are working with globally distributed teams and, in fact, many companies are now are "location independent", with no headquarters. This meetup group is a great place to collaborate face to face and compare notes, for both remote workers and our companies that are working with distributed teams. We'll socialize around topics including finding remote jobs, negotiating compensation, tips for being effective and for enjoying distributed teamwork, and how to deal with day-to-day challenges. And, with BTV Ignite, you can help shape our region's innovation strategy. Come join others to socialize, build new networks, share ideas, strengthen our ecosystem, and help promote Burlington as a great place to live, work, and have fun.
