Why We (Still) Believe in Working Remotely � Blog – Stack Exchange: "If you’re hiring for technical positions, hiring remotely is the best-kept, blindingly obvious secret for finding people."
"when going to work is as simple as walking upstairs (pants optional, but recommended) people just tend to put in more hours and work more productively."
"Our remote developers are some of the most argumentative people in the whole company, because we hired them to be that way. We like opinionated people. Opinionated people find things they care about to work on and make sure you know what they think, which is essential if you’re not sharing an office together."
"If even one person on the team is remote, every single person has to start communicating online."
