Great designs! And such a gift is a great idea. Thanks! I haven't found a present for my girlfriend yet, so I'm glad that I've read your post. I will choose the best design, order a T-shirt and add a bouquet of her favourite white roses from Valentine's Day Flowers store https://flowershopn5.com/collections/st-vlentine (this is the best delivery service in Los Angeles, in my opinion). I hope all this will make her happy.
Openness, transparency and asynchronicity. Those are the keys to me. (Please press play here for and ASMR experience of asynchronicity https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/asynchronicity.) Hopefully this doesn't come through as a GitLab advert. It is just my experience in this company and, like Matthew, as a person with already years of experience in remote, I may have a somewhat vetted opinion about it.
I really liked the text and would just like to chip in my two cents on why GitLab's remote culture works. I obviously work for GitLab. To me it's fundamental that you know how to operate in a company. Working in product marketing requires one to be part of Sales, part of Marketing (acquisition and field, that is) and part of Product. I know exactly what these three enormous areas of the company are doing because of the handbook. The handbook? Yes, the hand book https://about.gitlab.com/handbook/. More than a remote company we are a handbook-first company: we are hear to learn and share. We publish how we operate in a more than 3000 page long handbook precisely for anyone to look up and contribute. Back to my Product Marketing challenge, I would look up what Sales, Marketing or Product is up to here: https://about.gitlab.com/handbook/#marketing, https://about.gitlab.com/handbook/#product, https://about.gitlab.com/handbook/#sales.
If I want deeper visibility I can always attend their group calls in which not only I am allowed but I am encouraged too to make questions, request visibility and eventually raise an issue to collaborate across teams and track the progress and eventual success. This can be done asynchronously through our Youtube channels, where these calls are uploaded.
These two points, only address the operational part. However, communication and humanity is what holds this together. In person meeting changes everything. Completely. Social meetings, coffee chats and so many other interactions between colleagues as well company meetups, local, regional, and global are happening almost constantly across the company. Communication is clear and opinions (with feelings attached) are usually put forward expressively and respectfully. More than over communicate, as Matthew says, I believe the key here is again process transparency: let everyone know what the process looks like and where you are at.
The ultimate level of the human part is encouraging everyone to take time off. Despite working from home or, in fact, precisely because we work from home it is difficult to take time off. I mean it. GitLab managers, encourage, nudge and push one gently to take time off. Regularly and for no "official" reason. Again, be transparent about it, like Matthew's calendar screenshot.
