I've been working remotely for more than 2 years in multiple roles both as an individual contributor and a leader. Most recently I have been remotely leading a team of 6 -- 3 based out of an office and 3 remote. As a development manager, I hired 5 out of 6 members on my team and was able to create the team culture from scratch. I've strived to created a culture that is remote-friendly and treats everyone as equals no matter where they are located. Here are some guidelines I've followed to help to create a remote-friendly culture.

One of my core principles for working effectively is to always be capturing. No matter what I'm working on, even if the work is abstract and conceptual, I want to always be creating some artifact that represents the current mental work and can be shared later. This applies in both an individual and group setting. I'd like to share some of the practices I've developed and how they may benefit you.
