Difficulty disconnecting as a remote employee. I took a vacation and realized how difficult it was for me to stop thinking about work. This post is for anyone who works remotely and knows the feeling of always feeling tethered.
Last week, I attended and spoke at Spec, Slack’s first developer conference. Spec was a really compelling event that mixed sessions from Slack employees sharing feature announcements and technical guidance with talks from leaders at organizations like Twilio, HubSpot, and ZenDesk about what they are building on the Slack platform.
We asked each woman in the company, including myself, a handful of questions about searching for jobs: what made them pick Chromatic, what Chromatic does well, and where we could improve, along with some more general questions about our job-searching experiences.
I read an article recently discussing scope creep. It starts by stating “Scope creep is awful.” Many of the points suggested are good and the recommendations valid, yet at some point I have to ask: Is scope creep really awful?
Most of you reading this know that Chromatic is a distributed team with no centralized offices. This means that we have team members living all around the globe, and that we travel a decent amount. The whole team enjoys great food.
