I still remember when I joined Hotels.com technology team and how much excited I was to start such a new challenge. Since the very early days I realised that working in a global company is quite different from working in the same building. That is obvious, I know, but it wasn’t easy to get used to the new way of working.
I missed getting in touch with new teammates, and sometimes felt isolated from others and had the feeling of being a remote worker. Actually working in a global team has a lot in common with the remote work, and in this article I will list all of the good practices that allowed me to collaborate effectively with colleagues scattered across the world.
