Remote since 2016

When did you start remote working?

2016

What did you do before you worked remotely?

I worked full-time as Senior Product Designer for a startup in London

What do you do now to support yourself financially?

I keep working as a full-time Product Designer, but now for a 100% remote company called Zapier.

How did you transition to become a remote worker?

By chance I ended up working for a startup in London that allowed remote working. One day my partner and I thought "We are tired of the big city and we love traveling, so why don't we become digital nomads?" And that is what we did.

What's a typical day in your life now?

As currently I'm based in Spain and I work for a company where most people are located in US, usually my mornings are very quiet. I like to wake up early, read a book while having a coffee and then spend some time working on my own personal projects. The rest of my morning and early afternoon is focus time on my regular job. Usually my late afternoons are fully packed with meetings until dinner time.

What's the thing you enjoy most about being location independent and working remotely?

Being able to manage my own time, have the freedom to travel the world while working and be able to live in the countryside.

What are you most looking forward to in the next year?

Explore new places and spend more time working on personal projects

What is the one thing you would advise to anyone looking to take great control of their work life?

Be brave and trust yourself.
