Hear from our members
I’ve been a member of this community for several years, and it never fails to deliver high-quality first-hand advice. From the peer-to-peer masterminds to the 1:1 connections made with members who are going through similar challenges I’m always grateful for the extra layer of guidance I receive here.
Running Remote Community is a great place to connect & learn from other remote-first founders & leaders, I couldn’t recommend it more. I especially loved being paired with peers for mastermind sessions. It was invaluable and reassuring to hear that others shared some of the same challenges as we have, and inspiring to hear how they had tackled them.
When we took our company fully remote in 2020, I joined a number of remote-work focused groups to fast track my network and knowledge base. Running Remote stood out as the place I was able to tap into the expertise and guidance from leaders around the world and became my go to resource. I’ve left all the other groups I joined behind.
What an amazing platform for exchanging remote work challenges and learning with and from others through open discussions, conferences, and great content! I love the office-hours channel that features a different remote work expert bi-weekly who answers any questions about building & running your remote company.

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 distributed) companies with over 10 employees.
The community is not intended for non executive managers, junior employees, marketing & sales professionals and companies with less than 10 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.
We understand that your time is valuable, so it is absolutely up to you how much time you’ll spend in the community.
However, we have consistently seen that you get out what you put in: Often, the biggest contributors are the biggest beneficiaries.
The feedback we consistently receive is how much our remote leaders appreciate the true unity and collaboration within our community. They also especially love getting together at our annual Running Remote conferences, as it feels like a face-to-face reunion of people they’ve gotten to know so well online.
Given that the yearly membership includes a free ticket to the Running Remote conference, the community is priced to be accessible for remote leaders at $599 per year. We also offer a plan without the Running Remote conference ticket at USD399/y.
In order to maintain the quality of connections, opportunities, and information, all applications are thoroughly vetted and only founders & leaders of remote-first established companies are eligible to join.
We do not. Trials make more sense with things like SaaS products, where once you’re in you get a general understanding of what a full commitment will look like and the capabilities that are available to you.
We work to make sure that the community stays a relationship-centric thought exchange and relationships cannot be built in a short month-long trial period.
We value the time of our community members as well as the content that is distributed. Part of the vetting process is to make sure that people who join will actively contribute to the community, can relate to the caliber of what is discussed, and are not there purely to sell their own projects or perceive it as a great leads list.
Financial commitment is asked to support the effort from our team that goes into curating this community, organizing monthly events, peer-to-peer masterminds, personal introductions and more. We do provide a script to send to your employer if the Running Remote Community is something you’d like reimbursed as part of your education credits or benefits.
The PRO membership includes a free ticket to the Running Remote conference, making it a fantastic investment for a business into their remote work efforts.
Yes! We recently launched a remote consultants directory where you could get added to! You will need to become a paid community member, and apply here. Please note that the Slack community is a space free of self-promotion so you won’t be able to promote your brand there. But you can definitely build your brand awareness by contributing regularly.
Here are other benefits of joining the paid community as a remote consultant:
- Get added to a directory of remote consultants
- 1 feature per year in a community digest (sent to members)
- 1 feature per year in Running Remote newsletter
