What People Are Saying

Ted Bendixon
June 21st, 2018
Friendly and chill team to work with. Developers are top-notch, fun to talk to, and don’t take themselves too seriously. You’ll definitely work a full-time week, and if you want to do more, you can. You are encouraged to keep your own hours and manage your time yourself. You’ll never be told which hours to work. There’s just an expectation that you’ll contribute and be there when your team really needs you. Great pay, professional culture, enjoyable conversations, remote. What more could you want?

A remote workforce has advantages for talent selection (no geographic restrictions), productivity (work from anywhere) and reduced overhead (no office space). But maintaining a cohesive company culture with a remote workforce can be more difficult with the lack of in-person interaction, need to build trust at a distance, communications challenges and absentee managers. Tom Iler, Chief Product Officer for Surge and Catalyte, shares advice on how to maintain a cohesive company culture regardless of where your workers are located. In this podcast he discusses: Building trust, on both employer and employee side Monitoring outcomes, not activities Having the right tools…

COVID-19 has thrust all of us into uncharted territory. Many businesses are following the advice of public health officials and having their entire workforces operate remotely. Some for the first time. This can be a difficult transition. From technologies, to corporate and interpersonal communications, remote working has its challenges. Surge has navigated these challenges for over a decade. Here are a few quick and easy pointers to make this transition easier. Treat All Workers the Same Never treat remote and office-based developers differently. There should be the same accountability, same hours and the same oversight for remote and in-office workers.…

The typical American today is born into technology. A handheld or laptop is ubiquitous even in junior high school. As the connected generation matures, the idea that we need professionals to tell us how an application should work may seem like an unnecessary expense.

When Google reinvented email it was by thoughtful design that solved decades…
