  • It seems odd to be a team of 90 people and most of them never met yet, but at the same time it’s great to be able to grow a company remote like Alex did. I personally would choose a few days a week in the office at least

  • I miss the office, I miss beeing arround people. Most of my friends feel the same, I think we are going to see more remote work but a few days in the office

    We feel the same in our company, looking forward to going back to the office!
