The Backstory

#random is a Slack channel we use to connect our remote team and share news. Pretty much any material is fair game. So many interesting stories come up every week that we decided to share a few with you in a regular digest.

#random might not appear directly related to our day job, but it’s a way of long distance bonding. #random helps us get to know each other better. What we find useful. What we find funny. Our passions.

In that sense, #random really is our day job: building the greatest team.
