irene1712581dWhy do you even care about appearances? 🤔
@irene I don't 😀 just having a morning coffee and sharing what I think is not typical (compared to most of my dev friends) and I'm trying to relate it to a relaxed work environment.
Perhaps ability to detach from work, required for ones well-being, starts right there: not caring much about appearances simply by having no online appearance other than voice.
jespersh489181dI enjoy talking face to face with my (current) co-workers.
They fuel my problem-solving and they feel listened to
mojo201246381dI fully agree with u, although I also enjoy chatting with my coworkers.
I work more or less fully remote (once in awhile I go to the office for fun)
But this is definitely not for everyone! The most inportant factor is discipline. I know a lot if people who would just do ither stuff and in homeoffice ...
vane342381dI will be meeting my coworkers in person this month, one of them I will be seeing for the first time. Never seen his face. Others I seen 1-2 times during 2 years.
I find it as an asset to have a job like that. It gives you so much freedom.
But of course with great power comes great responsibility.
@karasube There was a post at the local (Eastern Europe) job search website, by "talent recruiting agency", on behalf of client X. Once I passed the first test, which I assume was ability to communicate in English, what followed was a basic talk about my CV. They were in poor condition at the time (business wise) and I was desperate to take anything, so it was a win-win😆and really painless.
We now conduct "proper" interviews, though.
@mojo2012 Well, we do chat sometimes about non-work related things, such as World Cup ⚽️ (quite a few of devs are from Latin America) and of course I googled them during the recruitment process, but still, I only have a poor profile image.
But others, like managers, including my immediate superior who's approving my invoice (i.e. putting food on my table) every month, I don't even know what they look like.
I'm not complaining, just sharing another remote dev's experience 🤓
