The Difference Between “Remote” and “Remote-First”
Paul Farnell

I’m the CEO/founder of a remote company as well. I would challenge that having an office that such a large percentage of the company works in isn’t truly remote-first. If some people are remote and other’s aren’t there are inherent inequalities, like the lunch one that you pointed out. But there are bigger problems like always grabbing the person who is in the office to collaborate with instead of the one you’ll have to monkey with video chat in order to talk to.

Anyway, I’m truly not trying to have a “remote-off” competition. ;) It is a really interesting problem, one that we’ve decided to solve by having no offices and no HQ at all.
