Building teams is hard. Building remote teams is harder but definitely worth it. You get access to a global talent pool. You get engineering coverage that follows the sun. And you get to build a much more diverse and inclusive team. A remote team isn't without its perils though, it is easy to build silos, burn out engineers, inflame imposter syndrome, and starve community building.
