Hey guys, just wondering what the real stats for remote or distributed workers in our industry. - freelance, inhouse, or agency. - - 1. UX Designer at Digital Telepathy 2. In the DT Office 3. Great!
- Web Design/Development
- 9/10 days remote.
- Very nice.
Recommend to anyone who hasn’t tried it yet.
- Designer at Podio
- Citrix Copenhagen office
- Challenging, but exciting.
We have all the tools in place, and are actively encouraged by Citrix to "workshift" (work from home). I just can't stand it, I like being the in the office with all these nice people, and I know the majority of them feel the same.
Also one of the companies leading the charge in encouraging "workshifting?"
Absolutely. It has a lot of benefits, it just doesn't work for me. But even that is acknowledged and respected :)
- Web/iOS Developer
- Yep. Home office.
- Started this full time summer of 2013. Loving it.
- Web Design & Front-end dev
- Remote (Anyone need a full time guy? I'm looking! )
I mainly work freelance, but I've dedicated a lot of time towards a startup lately as well. Remote is amazing, and if there was some way to elegantly express to an employer "pay me less if it means I can work remote" I would.
That would be a really interesting sell to work remote!
Definitely. But I completely understand the reasoning behind turning such an offer down. In-house team environments are much more close and tight-knit. Working remote takes away from that in some regards, so it's only really an option for certain types of work. Still, it's amazing to work in an industry where remote work is even an option (:
What sort of frontend stack do you prefer working with? Do you prefer more design or dev work (I can see you love both ;-).
Drop me a line. We work with lots of remote designers and devs (out entire team is remote a well).
Just sent you a message via the Altitude website's contact form (:
We have nearly identical pixel portraits.
+1 for keeping yours a pixel perfect match nearly haha.

- Not too well, looking. I turn toward DN and Reddit everyday for inspiration :)
Recently joined DN after reading Design+Code by Meng To. Definitely has inspired and motivated me to up my game and learn a ton of new things. Hopefully it'll lead me to a better place :)
- Freelance interface designer.
- Yes, remote every day. Sometimes I visit a client's office for a meeting or at the start of a new project, but not often. Mostly we talk through email or phone conferences.
- NOT BAD.
This month I worked from New York, Maryland, Virginia and tomorrow I'm flying to the Bay Area. Launched 2 projects and starting a new one next week.
The flexible schedule and location can be great for productivity, but it's difficult to sync downtime with friends or a partner who has a more stable schedule.

- Full-time Remote
- Lead designer in small agency (that means I do bits of everything)

- Just started with the remote working thing. I still find the need to head into our co-working space a couple of times of week, I'm still not fully ready for 100% remote working yet. But so far I'm loving the experience!
