Traveling While Working

Since we are a location-agnostic company, you are welcome to travel while you are working if you choose to. You can find fellow traveling humans in the #hmgoes channel in Slack. Feel free to ask for help or tips there if you need it.

Some general guidelines for traveling while working:

  • use an application like Clocks to stay on top of time zones
  • keep anyone who is reliant on you updated on your location
  • let your team members know if you expect to be offline for any longer periods
  • if you have a voice or video meeting, make sure you are somewhere quiet with a good internet connection
  • get a good set of headphones and a microphone – this is covered by our expenses policy
  • try to travel with an unlocked mobile device so you can update the SIM card in whichever country you are in
  • seek out the local WordPress meetup wherever you are and, if you can attend the meetup. It’s a great way to meet some locals and learn more about the area
  • use the company Tripit
