PixelNib is a digital & design agency founded in August 2017. We decided to go fully remote ten months ago. This decision really helped us cope up with the Corona outbreak and we sailed through it safely. At present we are 15 members (full/part-time) team spread across 6 cities.
Although going remote as a business depends a lot on your industry. You must consider it if it suits you. Here’s what we have to say about remote working.
Reasons to go remote:
