At Octobot, we thought it might be a great experience for the team to go and enjoy a work stay over someplace else. Why not to do so in a different country where they could live a different experience? For this reason, we rented a house in Brooklyn for one month and invited the whole team to live the experience of working from another country.
As with our clients in the US, distance was no issue when working remotely since our HQ are in about the same time zone than NY and the tools we use are all friendly for remote work. So, day-to-day work and week-to-week delivery flowed as always, with part of the team abroad.
Forging strong relationships is one of our core values, and this trip enabled a great team building experience, getting the chance to practice furthermore English, while visiting a fantastic city and what’s most important, enjoy. Raising the technical bar at tech events and getting to see other perspectives and culture were also big takeaways of this experience.
Pepocho also got a chance to enjoy this experience on its first travel abroad!
