Twitter, and more recently, Shopify have announced that they will indefinitely be allowing their employees the ability to work from home.
Neither of those companies are very small. Shopify, as of writing this, has the largest market cap of any Canadian company.
I truly believe that remote work is the future. That doesn’t mean “working from home” is the future. It means “working from anywhere” is the future. That means from a coffee shop, your favourite co-working space, the mountains, the beach. Anywhere.
More and more companies won’t require you to live in a city where they have an office.
The best jobs, at the best companies, will be available to anyone, anywhere.
The future is remote.
