Remote Engineering Manager

A complete guide to managing remotely in software engineering.

About the Book

Remote work is on the rise, and for good reason. It provides several benefits to the employee, as well as the company. It also provides it's share of challenges and forces changes to the way we work.

In this book, I've distilled 6 years as an engineering leader inside 100% remote companies. I contrast this with another 6+ years in from semi-remote settings and on-site jobs.

The book is a complete overview on the subject of remote engineering leadership. It will emphasize the remote aspect and target managers that started remote work. It will guide you through the process of setting up your team with good procedures. Starting with the basic concepts and setting up good processes. Then we will go further and set up systems to improve those processes in an ongoing manner. We will also talk about the larger issues that are often problematic in remote settings.

Each chapter will have actionable items. There will be checklists for both you, your team members and organization. Let's go remote together!
