Nobody has yet nominated “nowhere” as the next tech hub.
But it’s now a possibility.
“The rise of remote work and the proliferation of “distributed” teams have meant that start-ups are often less reliant on a physical space and face-to-face interaction with both employees and with customers,” shared Alexander Besant, a Senior Editor at LinkedIn.
There are two trends at play. The first is startups that are fully, or almost completely remote, with employees scattered around the world. The second trend is nomadic founders without a single location.
“The number of ‘remote’ job listings at the world’s biggest companies are up 151% since just 2018. That includes companies like Oracle, Dell, Anthem, Inc., and Guidewire Software,” stated Joshua Fruhlinger, Publisher at Thinknum.
Joshua Graham, Director at Kord Technologies, Inc, wrote: “It’ll be interesting to see how IT development organizations shift to this new way of thinking. We took the data off-premise to the could… why not the employees. Distributed work isn’t new, however, to be a fully remote culture will require a lot of patience for some and new training and updated processes. It’s nice to be able to walk into someone’s office and get confirmation of a completed task, however, on the other hand, it could be distracting.”
