There are three types of people that join
Remote-first Founders & C-level executives
People who actively run remote operations for their established companies of min 5+ employees. Founders who are scaling & building their business and need help with remote management. Whether you’ve been remote-first from the start or just transitioning now it’s a place for you.
People Ops Executives for remote-first companies
Executives who “design work” to enable employees to bring their best to the job every day. They are pro-actively involved in shaping strategic decisions around work by understanding high-level business objectives and crucial aims for remote-first companies.
Heads of Remote
Executives who are focused on making remote work as easy and rewarding as possible for the company’s employees. People who serve as a cross-functional internal consultant to evolve key pillars e.g. L&D, knowledge management, and onboarding so that each function becomes more effective in a distributed setting.

Running Remote Community is for founders & executives (i.e. C-level executives, HR and People Ops professionals, Heads of Remote) who are actively running and leading remote-first (or hybrid) companies with over 5 employees.
The community is not intended for non executive managers, junior employees, marketing & sales professionals, remote work consultants and companies with less than 5 employees (whether that be contractors or full-time employees).
We are vetting every application to ensure high-quality connections and opportunities. To apply, we ask you to fill in a short questionnaire to understand your unique challenges and expectations. We’re reviewing applications on a weekly basis, so expect an answer from us within 5 working days. Once accepted, we will send you a link to pay for your membership so that you can get access to our Slack workspace and other resources and we can begin the onboarding process.
It’s absolutely up to you how much time you’ll spend in the community. Nothing is mandatory. However, you get out what you put in: often, the biggest contributors are the biggest beneficiaries.
Depending on your schedule and interest you could:
Join our AMA sessions, networking events
Contribute in Slack (and ask for advice in return)
Participate in the mastermind
