SXSW 2020

Asynchronous, Far-Flung, & Flourishing

The future of work is 100% remote. Global talent is truly global, and companies unwilling to harness the power of minds across geographies risk missing out on invaluable and diverse perspectives. Learn from the CEO and co-founder of GitLab, Sid Sijbrandij, as he discusses how he's enabled a 100% remote company of 800+ team members. What are the tools and technologies that have allowed Sid to source wonderful team members, keep them engaged and productive, and support happiness on and off the clock?

Sid will take on common concerns and misconceptions of businesses grappling with offering remote work. He'll explain how working in the open benefits not only the team but the wider community, detailing the mindset and infrastructure necessary to thrive as a business across time zones.
