We’re excited to host the next edition of Coffee Talks – a series of monthly morning fireside chats with creative entrepreneurs. Come and enjoy a delicious cup of coffee at Factory Kitchen and get your daily dose of inspiration.
This time, we’re happy to discuss the rise of the remote workforce with startup consultant, Rachel diCerbo. Is this new working model anything more than just startup hype? We sit down with Rachel, one of the early adopters of this model and manager of remote teams for Wikimedia Foundation and Couchsurfing to discuss the history and future of remote work.
About Rachel diCerbo:
Rachel has been working with remote teams since 2006. She led the trust and safety team for Couchsurfing.com for seven years, coordinating a volunteer team on 6 continents while traveling globally, then managing both onsite and remote team members later in her tenure. She also managed a distributed team of community liaisons embedded into the product departments at the Wikimedia Foundation – an organization which also has a large portion of remote staffers. She’s lived several models of what it means to be a “remote” team member, and has learned and developed ways of creating harmonious, cohesive distributed teams with high output.
