Cutting-edge training
Our remote working experts and educators teamed up to create a future-proof learning journey. We teach the most advanced and up-to-date skills and tools to bootstrap you for success at a distributed company.
Sourcing the best talent
We work with community organizations to find the best hidden talent in the world. Through a highly selective process, we find job-ready talent and we make them remote ready.
Breaking down barriers
We're on a mission to unlock global talent by making cross border hiring easy. Your location should not determine your ability to work at the best companies in the world.
Many teams are still transitioning to distributed working, and many are still working like office-based teams. Working this way results in:
  • Bad communication and collaboration, especially across timezones
  • Difficulty communicating effectively through a screen
  • A feeling of Isolation, often with limited ownership or autonomy
  • Lack of company culture and team bonding
  • Personal and project management methods that no longer work as well as they should
Remote job seeking can also have its challenges:
  • Cutting through the noise to find valuable remote working opportunities
  • If you've never worked in a distributed company before, it can be intimidating to apply to one
  • Even if you have the right skills and experience for the job, you might not know the digital tools used for distributed working.

Becoming Remote Ready

  • Learn to use the most advanced digital work tools.
  • Master Asynchronous and Synchronous Communication's best practices.
  • Acquire tools to maintain your physical and mental well-being.
  • Experience distributed project/self management.
  • Job coaching/career guidance to help you secure that job.
  • Connect with high growth startups looking for exceptional talent.

Career Guidance
We will help you find and apply for remote jobs at the best distributed companies in the world.
We believe that the best learning happens by doing. To that end, Remote Ready simulates working at a distributed company. Just like remote working, the course is 95% asynchronous. During the course you'll work through lessons and tutorials together, using tools like Slack and Loom to discuss as you learn together.
While the majority of your work will be at your own pace, we'll also have regular synchronous workshops together. We designed Remote Ready so that anyone can take it, regardless of their time commitments.
The course is 4 weeks long. Remote Ready 2 will begin on March 1st 2021 and conclude on March 29th 2021. Expect to dedicate around 7 hours per week for the course.
