Ten years ago, I started working with Javier and we fully embraced remote work as our modus operandi. We were living in different cities and managed all our communications virtually. It was such a great experience and there was such a strong connection between us that we decided to co-found Theam. The day we met to found the new company was only our second meeting in person, after two years working together mostly by email.
Today we are a remote-first team of 42 developers and designers. Theam has embraced the values and skills that Javier and I developed naturally when remote work wasn’t yet popular or common.
Trust, ownership, transparency, candor, and excellence allow us to exceed our customers’ expectations and, together with our remote-first culture, grant us a strong competitive advantage.
This is why we advocate for remote work and why we decided to be an active part of this remote afterwork initiative. It’s a way to spread the word about the benefits and also the challenges that make remote work so valuable to us and for many companies, remote workers, and freelancers.
