The Memo: #27 (161+ remote jobs)

The Memo: #26 (81+ remote jobs)

Hey folks, 

Last week, I mentioned Peanut, the community for new mothers, and their excellent video that explains the need for their app in a very clever way. 

Well it seems that the people at Peanut are just all-round pretty clever. The app draws inspiration from Tinder’s swipe left/swipe right model. But, in this YouTube video, Peanut’s founder, Michelle Kennedy, mentions how the team didn’t want people to fill rejected when others swiped left. So they changed the actions: you swipe up to wave at someone and swipe down for maybe later. It’s subtle but I think it’s a great way of reframing/rebranding an action to minimize the negative feelings people might have when they use your product or service. Side note: if you’re a mom, or you have moms involved in your side project, the Peanut app could potentially be an interesting place to find early users. 

Lean Luxe, a newsletter focused on direct-to-consumer luxury businesses created by Paul Munford, has a unique way of on-boarding users into its Slack group. Anyone looking to get in has to first be a subscriber to the free newsletter for at least a month and they have to maintain an open-rate of at least 60%. Hunter Walk of Homebrew wrote a blog post on the model and I’ve seen others deploy it since learning of it. One reason I think it’s quite clever: newsletters typically have an open-rate at or below 50%. This model, if deployed successfully, could lead to a 10% increase in the open-rates compared to peers and could be valuable for differentiation when pitching potential sponsors. 

Things to think about if you’re thinking about building a community.


There’s been quite the influx of emails, new sign ups and new paying members since the last newsletter. So, let’s step back and talk about why I started The Memo.

  • Stock options. I noticed that many remote positions did not include stock options and I wanted to be an advocate for startups to find a way to grant stock options to their remote staff.  

  • A new model. Lots of people talk about how the future of work is remote but the models for in the hiring space seem to be the same. What would it look like if we placed the emphasis on the candidate and their career?

  • Out of office. My own inclination is to design a career around not working in a corporate environment. I’ve spoken to many subscribers & members, and you expressed the same idea: finding a way to minimize office politics seems to be a priority. 

Why am I building this community now?

  • No love for LinkedIn. I personally don’t get much value out of LinkedIn, ane there seems a general backlash against LinkedIn. There’s an opportunity to build a career community, with a new model, specifically for remote workers. 

  • Hidden positions. In talking to founders, I realized that many companies would consider hiring remote but don’t actively brand themselves as “remote-first” or
    “remote-friendly.” There’s an opportunity to connect people to those roles. 

  • Large opportunity. There’s lots of people that are interested in remote work, but I suspect that there are many many more that have never considered and would find it valuable. 


Right now, we are a job board delivered via email. We’re like Scott’s Cheap Flights but for remote jobs. (There’s additional perks for members who support us.)

How are we different from other remote job boards?

A fair amount of the jobs and companies that we feature aren’t also published on AngelList, WeWorkRemotely or the other job boards. 


Support the newsletter and community by becoming a founding member.

So, all that to say, if you’re interested in supporting this project as we try to rethink how remote workers connect to new roles and launch side projects, I’m extending the founding member deal, where you can join for just $69/lifetime (one-time fee) by using this discount coupon:

Join for $69/lifetime

Note: I need to manually switch accounts from annual to lifetime and will confirm the switch and I reach out to you with the welcome email.

Why join?

  • Founding member status

  • CV + cover letter review whenever you need it

  • Community 1-on-1s

  • Early access to each newsletter 

  • No ads ever

  • Best practice tips on building your own side project (let’s set up call/Google chat to talk about what you’re building)

We’re working on other benefits for founding members, which you can read about on our about page.


Newsletter sponsorships do not seem to be worth it. I’ve been reaching out to companies about sponsoring the newsletter and then using those funds to support one or more community-led side projects. The quoted rates are far too low and I don’t think it’s worth moving forward on that front, at the moment.

I did, however, speak to a coding bootcamp that offered a referral fee if anyone signs up. If anyone is thinking about doing a coding bootcamp, I’ll get the referral link and give you back the 5%-10% that the company would be giving me. Happy to do this for anyone in the community, subscriber or member. Also happy to do this for other services, if you let me know what service you’re looking for.


One more thing:

  • Interesting blog post by The World Economic Forum on how people can remain competitive in an evolving job market that’s being increasingly reshaped by technology. Two things they recommend: adopt the mindset of the lifelong learner and build a portfolio career. Basically: learn new stuff and build new stuff. (As always, if you’re thinking of a side project or working on one, reach out. I’d love to hear about it).

Cheers,

Chris ✌️

The Memo: #25 (90+ remote jobs)

Hey folks,

In building this newsletter and community, I’ve been looking at lots of great examples of indie makers and startups that have figured something key out about building a community. As I continue to seek out the first sponsor for the free version of the newsletter and use those funds to support people in the community building their own side projects, I thought I’d share some of interesting examples over the next few newsletters.

Peanut, which recently announced a $5M funding round, is a community for mothers. The company’s explainer video has a series of women recite a poem on motherhood called “What’s my name again.” The video (on the landing page) is such a clear success in explaining the need for the community and they do it in a really novel way. If you’re thinking about your own side projects, which I know many of you are, I think this is a really great example of how to hook people on the need for what you’re creating.


A little while back, I asked this question:

As a remote worker, what's one thing that would make your life easier, make you more efficient, or reduce any obstacles that you've encountered?

One thing that came up, was that some of you felt that remote workers aren’t always treated the same as your on-premise colleagues. For example, needing to demonstrate how you’ve spent your time with weekly reports. Have others had a similar experience? If you have similar experiences that you’d like to share or would like add your add your own response to the question, you can do so here.


Support the newsletter and community by becoming a founding member.

I’m extending the founding member deal, where you can join for just $69/lifetime (one-time fee) by using this discount coupon.

Note: I need to manually switch accounts from annual to lifetime and will confirm that your membership has been switched over in the welcome email that I send out.

Why join?

  • Founding member status

  • CV + cover letter review whenever you need it

  • Community 1-on-1s

  • Early access to each newsletter 

  • No ads ever

  • Best practice tips on building your own side project

We’re working on other benefits for founding members, which you can read about on our about page. The big one: because we’re a member-funded community, we’ll look to take funds from sponsors and put that towards people building profitable side projects.

Also: The Memo emerged while working on another newsletter, which involved interviewing early-stage founders (I noticed that many companies would consider remote candidates without making mention of that fact in their job adverts). In the future, we may look to host member-only events where you can ask founders and VCs questions.


If you haven’t already:

  1. Fill out this form and submit your CV to make it easier to connect you to relevant role.

  2. Fill out this form with your email and timezone to join our community 1-on-1s and get matched with someone in the community. Next one: November 29th.

The Memo: #24 (104+ remote jobs)

Hey folks,

Just back from LA where I was celebrating my sister’s wedding. LA is a magical place. I tried Shake Shack for the first time and don’t understand why LA natives are convinced that In-N-Out Burger is better. I think it might have something to do with a lingering East Coast/West Coast rivalry. But I digress.

And we’re back at it with another edition of the newsletter. One note: I’m looking for a sponsor for the free edition of the newsletter. I’ll look to use all the funds from the sponsorship to support community-led side project(s). If you’ve got an idea for a side project or are working on something, email me, I’d love to hear about it. I’ll include a form in the next newsletter where you can submit your project for consideration. The only ask: the selected project(s) will be asked to write a short blog post about their experience. Working on having a sponsor lined-up for the next edition of the free newsletter (#25).


I’ve received feedback from the community that the annual and lifetime memberships are a barrier for some. With that in mind, I’ve opened up a monthly option to support the community. You can join the community as a founding member for $15/month.

You’ll have access to all the same perks as the annual and lifetime memberships, and you’ll be a founding member as long as your membership is active. We’ll look to keep the monthly option open for a temporary period, but anyone that sign ups will be able to retain the monthly membership option after it’s been phased out.

Want more info on the community that we’re building? Check our updated about page with testimonials. Here’s a few testimonials:

Super excited to be apart of this. I am glad I found you and signed up when I did!

  • Kishya Greer, founding member

I will definitely refer your newsletter to a friend. I just signed up for the lifetime membership as well. Thank you for building this community.

  • Allie Dukuze, founding member

I've really appreciated reading your newsletter over the past months and am highly likely to recommend the newsletter. While I'm not currently ready for a remote job, reading about all the opportunities and the community that you're building is inspirational. Please keep going!

  • Uttam Kumaran, member

I am recommending The Memo to just about everyone I know. It's a great list and I love the community feel.

Housekeeping:

  • Salary info: in the last edition of the newsletter, I noted that we’d be making more of an effort to get at salary ranges for each position. While we’ve included some salary info below, it’ll require a bit more time to put processes in place to try to get at relevant salary info. Sup[porting the newsletter with a paid monthly, annual, or lifetime membership helps put more resources towards getting at salary info.

  • Format feedback: if you want to see more of certain roles or you’d like additional information to be included in the newsletter, email me. We’ve started to include more Data Science and Product roles after we’ve received feedback from the community.

  • Community 1-on-1s: Want to meet others in the community? Every couple weeks, we’re matching people in the community together so that they chat and network. We’ve received lots of positive feedback on the format thus far. Fill out this form with your email and timezone.
