The methodology of working remote

Who likes the friggin 'office, hitting 9-5 job and returning home like a mango just squashed off for juice? No one, right? Well, of course there are exceptions because few people find it easy to just pass the time from 9-5 pretending like they are working while doing everything except the real work.

Well, you might be wondering what would be ideal scenario, so 9-5 seems to be the only way people can be contracted to stay in office where you can see and try to monitor if he / she is working or not. But are you sure, you can track if a person is working or not just keeping him / her beside your table. Of course you can, but you might have to invest your 9-5 to monitor your employees 9-5 and I believe it does not make sense at all.

Does remote working solve this problem? Let's dig into that, shall we. To start off let's see how we track the work done by a person remotely, we check the work done by the person, THE WORK, THE REAL WORK. Yeap, that's straight forward and to the point, you do not monitor if the person is there on the desk, smoking a cigarette or chatting with a colleague, you do not have to worry about that. You simply see the work you expect from the remote worker and directly jump in to call to explain what needs correction and encourage him / her with what he / she did well. Feck yeah! simple as that.

You just saved your 9-5 for monitoring other person for maybe around 1 hour of collaboration where you get to review the work and provide feedback. Is not that a great accomplishment for an effective and efficient days ahead. Enlightened are not you? : D

Remote Office job

A physical space or office to work has been a thing of past now, foregoing the culture of 9-5. The main reason for this is because it is obvious that each individual has their own way of working and their own time of peak productivity. There is no guarantee that a person is working just by sitting at his desk in a 9-5 office. Rather on a different approach, remote work seems to result rather than presence and hence meaning more productivity. With this insight remote work creates a win-win situation where the remote worker feels and is more productive while the employer / client gets the result he has always been waiting for.

Working remotely also grants us with huge amount of freedom and time which we use for our family and other developmental work like learning new things or enjoying a quality time reading books. We believe that work is important but it does not make sense if it is not well balanced with other important factors of life like family and recreation. Considering that recreation is a crucial part for creativity we let our mind flow hence capturing and contemplating various ideas in different perspectives.

Remote Office job

Well, you might think that, we are only having fun without real work. While we agree that we have fun, we can prove how we make real work happen:

  • Scheduling time for first meeting
  • Understanding and breaking down the requirement
  • Requirement confirmation
  • Requirement organization and fixing
  • Cost estimation based on requirements
  • Confirmation and contracting
  • Design presentation of the end result
  • Low-fidelity mockup
  • High-fidelity mockup
  • Design confirmation> Feedback> Locking
  • Development starts based on selected framework.

With each of the above mentioned steps followed one after another, we make sure that our projects are on track and under control while remaining within budget. Also, the flexible remote environment gives us that we can live in places where living cost is low than the developed countries. This flexibility has provided us the ability to charge our clients lower than the market rate while being still in good shape. The real example of win-win is not it. Making sure that things get done within time and budget requires us to use some handy tools.

It's not only about our scheduled methodology, our to properly fulfil the requirements of our working process, remote development has revamped itself in this modern era with a lot of collaboration tools. Companies have spent billions of dollars in online collab apps such as Google drive to allow teams to easily share files across their computers.

Working remote requires the most advanced tools to coordinate work between developers. Another example of this evolution is Slack . From chat to complete notification systems. It allows to easily communicate system notifications with different users. Trello also allowed for teams to work remotely with clients and organize tasks in a scheduled way. Invision is a fantastic tool for app design with instant client feedback.

Without these tools, we would not have the flexibility that remote development allows for. The industry has evolved spending billions in research and development to create this methodology, and as the industry evolves, we evolve with it.
