Good software engineers can be found anywhere, and embracing remote working enables you to tap into that global pool. But just because you can… does that mean you should?

I’ll include some stories that draw on my experience working in technical recruitment for clients who have been on both sides of the do/don’t scale, as well as Automattic’s decade-plus experience as a fully-distributed company.
