At ClearCove we have been working remotely for 15 years. We have worked with clients on other continents, or in the next town. For certain kinds of jobs, this is a great model where everybody wins: The client gets access to the best talent for the job, we get to establish work/life balance and live exactly where we want to be, and the environment wins by one more person who doesn’t have to commute to work every day.
37Signals is an example for a company that gets it. Their tools facilitate remote work through asynchronous communications, they wrote a book about it, and now they have a job board for remote jobs.
