Edited excerpt from What distributed startup Zapier learnt while building a 100% remote team by Marina Janeiko:
What skills or mindsets are you looking for when hiring for remote positions?
— People who write well, since most communication is written.
— People who are self motivated, since there is no one around to tell them what to do.
— People who are curious, because they tend to try things rather than sitting around and waiting for instruction.
