Remote work handbook

We've found that successful remote teams rely on the core principles of efficiency, automony, and trust. See how we put these values into action at Teamweek.

Team values

Teamweek’s working culture can be summed up by 3 words: efficient, adaptable and kind. We have a team of highly-skilled individuals and so we are not afraid to move quickly and make mistakes along the way, that’s how we grow. We can trust each other to do our very best and offer help when needed.

How we do remote

First, we make sure people can and do take ownership of their work. Teams have the tools they need to succeed and are actively involved in decision-making.

We also place heavy emphasis on communication. We discuss everything openly and honestly and expect team members to share plans, favorite memes, successes, failures, lessons learned and anything in between.

Finally, trust is key. Trust is earned when actions meet words. We believe that done is better than perfect and expect people to stick to deadlines and follow-through on projects. Because we trust people to do their jobs, we don’t need to micromanage or impose endless rules and guidelines.

“If you don't trust someone to work without looking over their shoulder remote won't work (but to be honest neither will it work in a conventional office).”
Serge Herkül | Estonia | CEO
“The best and the most important for me is the freedom. It's giving me the feeling that I am responsible for what I do, the feeling of ownership.”
Jozef Matas | Czech Republic | Designer and Product lead
"Now that I work remote, I don't have to commute and I have the flexibility to work on a schedule that's best for me."
Emily Mcgee | USA | Blog manager

Happy people work better.

Remote work and flexible schedules also give us a real opportunity to invest in the happiness and well-being of our staff. We make sure to meet up at least twice a year, offer professional growth and travel opportunities, and provide a budget for every employee to set up a comfortable home office.

Hire the right people.

It's no secret a CV doesn't really say anything about a person. So we decided to skip that step. Instead, we use short skills tests to find the best candidates without skimming through piles of paper.

A remote work environment doesn't suit everyone. Therefore, we interview prospective candidates and offer the top prospects a paid test drive. This gives potential team members the chance to show off their skills and collaborate with our team. It also lets us see how self-motivated the person is and how well they communicate in a remote setting.
