Title: "Remote Work Culture" by Tijana Momirov


The future of work is going remote. With the current technology, there is no reason why not. As any change, it brings benefits and challenges, and in this case to both players of the remote game: the remote professionals and the remote companies. In this talk we'll go over the most important ones and share the tips for overcoming the common pitfalls.

Tijana Momirov


Tijana is a software engineer and product manager working fully remotely and living nomadic lifestyle since 2010. As someone who witnessed the transition of remote work from a marginal and neglected space to almost a main stream movement joined by some of the most influential companies, this is one of her favorite topics to discuss. Her experience includes working as a remote professional, but also recruiting remote professionals and managing distributed teams.
