Rauno Metsa
We now see a lot of companies going remote after the pandemic introduced them to the possibility. But I think you started out as a remote team?
Carlos N. Escutia
We are a remote-first co.
Rauno Metsa
If your motivation was not the pandemic, what was it? Why did you start a remote company?
Carlos N. Escutia
It made sense based on our previous experience building a company in San Francisco. We did not want to go through the same hassle and decided to jump on remote work cold.
Rauno Metsa
What do you think are the biggest benefits of remote work?
Carlos N. Escutia
Help us manage our burn rate without an office expense. It also helps us work with great talent without the associated cost with local hires in the US
Rauno Metsa
So being remote is probably quite important for you?
Carlos N. Escutia
A key competitive advantage.
Rauno Metsa
What are you looking for in a good remote jobs candidate?
Carlos N. Escutia
Great communication skills, proactive, and fast learner.
Rauno Metsa
How to stand out when applying for a remote job?
Carlos N. Escutia
Give examples of work you have done without supervision. Explain clearly your thought process when you have challenges working on projects and how would you tackle it. Show that you don't need handholding but that you are confident and capable to get things done as expected or being proactive when there are any issues.
Rauno Metsa
How does your remote company's hiring process for remote jobs look like?
Carlos N. Escutia
Video call is next. If we like the candidate and have someone from the team nearby we will arrange an interview lunch (Not key but a nice to do when possible).
Rauno Metsa
How do you onboard new remote team members?
Carlos N. Escutia
We train them on our SOPs and set clear expectations. For one month they will work very closely with another employee to answer any questions and ramp up.
Rauno Metsa
How do you conduct interviews for remote jobs?
Carlos N. Escutia
Video calls and lunch meeting when possible
Rauno Metsa
How do you convey your remote culture when recruiting?
Carlos N. Escutia
Not making an effort here. At our size (we are 9 people), we are online every day and share resources to work remotely better amongst the team.
