Slite

Working async provides us with more flexibility, and makes everyone owner of their time and work. ‍Still, we are humans at work. We believe in real life interactions, 1:1 video calls, ideation meetings are all crucial to building trusting, long lasting relationships.

Almanac

Our team at Almanac is fully distributed around the world and works with an async-first mentality. Async communication allows teammates more time to do deep work and get into flow. It also tends to produce more thoughtful direction & feedback as you are provided time to crystallize your thoughts. In practice, that means we: - Dedicate a majority of our time to accomplishing our goals via async work. - Ruthlessly remove unnecessary standing meetings and check-ins if not absolutely necessary that they are synchronous. - Create, share, and update documentation as our primary source of truth. - Use workflows instead of meetings to ask for feedback, request approval, share out information, or updated documentation. - Don't expect coworkers to reply immediately to pings or requests. - Regularly update task boards and KPIs so coworkers can see progress and blockers without status updates. - Have a quarterly "Async Week" with zero synchronous meetings. Asynchronous communication is how we keep up in a way that respects team members' time and prioritizes productivity. By no means are we perfect at async, but these practices and processes have given us the ability to achieve so much more than we could have otherwise.

Fly

Most internal communication is written, and often asynchronous. You'll want to be comfortable with not getting an immediate response for everything, but also know when you need to get an immediate response for something. Virtually all customer communication, documentation and blog posts are in writing.

The expectation for responses when you are tagged in a message is within 24 hours. There will always be exceptions to this but a good rule of thumb is to aim to reply to messages you're tagged in within 24 hours at most. Something as simple as a short message saying you'll get back to them at another time works.

HackerNoon

HackerNoon pretty much invented HackerNoon (we work remotely from day 1). Since, we rely on Slack, Zoom, Notion, Google GSuite (you name it) to communicate and work together. We use Slack to talk shop and share memes, Notion to organize our talks and projects (it can be Spreadsheet for some people too), and Zoom to meet up.

We work asynchronously. We only do weekly email updates. We don't even use Slack. We want everybody to have as few as possible notifications and the mini panic attack with each of them (you know what I mean.)

OpenCraft

Asynchronous communication - OpenCraft endeavours to make as many of our processes as asynchronous as possible so that no one has to work outside their preferred hours. Our sprint planning process is asynchronous), and while you may occasionally need to meet with a teammate or client outside your preferred time window, it's not the norm. Generally, discussions happen first asynchronously; if there is really something that can't be efficiently sorted out asynchronously, have a chat or schedule a meeting.

Talarian

As a fully-remote company, we of course communicate mostly in writing via email, google docs and spreadsheets, and sometimes Slack. However, verbal communication has its value, and we hold meetings when they're the best communication solution. We insist on good communication, whether written or verbal, as it is the least one can do when consuming other people's time.

Stanwood

To produce great quality code, developers need time slots where they can dive deep into a problem and get lost in the task at hand. That’s a challenge for a software development agency like us with many different projects and clients who want us to respond quickly to their requests. Our policy is that people need to reply to a message aimed at their personal handle within 2 hours. It’s enough to say: On it, getting back to you in the afternoon/tomorrow/etc. That way we ensure our team members get deep work done and keep in touch with their teammates.
