The Memo: #29 (94+ remote roles)

Hey folks,

I’d love to get more of a sense of the types of roles that you’re looking for. If you haven’t filled a form in the past and we haven’t spoken, get in touch. I've got many more roles that aren’t included and I want to make sure there’s something here for all. email me

I’ll be launching a series of exclusive interviews with CEOs, founders, CTOs, CMOs and others running remote companies. Building a tentative list of guests, some of which I’ve spoken to in the past. The interviews should provide members with a better sense of how they operate as a remote company and their own thoughts what they look for in remote candidates.

You can support the community and get full access by becoming a founding member. Join and secure access to the forthcoming interviews, as well as other perks, for just $169 (one-time fee) by filling out this form.

(This lifetime membership deal is good as long as that link is still accessible).

  • It’s hard to write a good CV. Telling the story of the impact that you had is difficult and anyone helping you has to go off what you tell them. I’m testing sending 2-3 questions every Friday to members of the community that will have you reflect on what you achieved in the past week. I’ll send out the first batch this Friday (17th). If you’re interested, you can fill out this short form.

  • Freelance web developer and friend of the community, Josh Pitzalis, is building a new product called ClientTree, designed to help freelancers find more clients by word-of-mouth. If you’re freelancing and trying to find more clients, you can start with this blog post Josh wrote that walks you through his process.

The Memo: #28 (170+ remote roles)

Hey folks,

This will be the final newsletter for the year and we’ll get back at it after this in January. Instead of including all the job links in the email, I've added them to a publicly accessible Google Sheet (link below). I may revert back to including all the job links in the email moving forward.

Thank you to everyone that’s subscribed, shared this newsletter, and written in over the past few months to offer praise and feedback for this weird community of remote workers and makers that I’m building. And big thank you to everyone that’s supported the newsletter & community financially.

Submit your project!

As previously mentioned, I’m taking all of the funds from the Codeworks sponsorship and putting it towards someone in the community building a side-project. While it’s not a whole lot – $100 – if you’re project is chosen you can use the funds however you see fit to advancing your side-project. Details:

  1. Friends, family, and anyone else with a personal connection to me or anyone working on the newsletter will be ineligible.

  2. The only thing I’ll ask of the selected project is to either Tweet regularly over the course of a month about the progress that they’re making, or, alternatively, write a short blog post at the end of the month about their progress and next steps.

  3. I’ll pick a project in early January and anyone is open to submit their project for consideration here:

  4. I’ll announce the selected project here and on Twitter. Follow me on Twitter to keep an eye out.

  5. Have a look at the Codeworks website, if you’re thinking about picking up coding, use this link to sign up.

This whole newsletter and community has been an experiment, and so my hope is that since we’re member-funded, we can use sponsorship funds to test out a way of supporting side projects.

Tips on writing a better CV

I’ve seen dozens of CVs at this point, and so I thought I’d share some thoughts about what to look out for. I plan on fleshing these points out a little more for a blog post.

  • Use a standard design format. If you’re not designer, don’t try to reinvent the wheel.

  • Make sure that there aren’t design inconsistencies. Bullet points with dashes in some places and dots in others is just one example.

  • Grammar. Can be a deal breaker.

  • Demonstrate the impact that you’ve had in each bullet point with numbers. This is a big one. Instead of simply saying oversaw this function of the business, your bullet points should demonstrate the impact that you’ve had with tangible numbers. Increased revenue by X% because of X, Y, Z strategies.

  • Less is (almost always) more. Fight the need to pack every inch of the CV with information; it makes very difficult to read for someone that’s just scanning.

  • Have someone else read it. There are things that you’re not going to see. As a perk for our paying members, I offer to review their CVs and cover letters. But I would suggest to just find someone that will do it.

  • Read other people’s CVs. In the new year, I may look to pair people up in the community so that you can read each other’s CVs.

  • Aim for brevity with your mission statement/overview, if you include one.

  • Skills. This doesn’t have to be too long and you should omit things that are obvious.

  • Your photo is probably unnecessary.

Your CV is a landing page and you’re trying to move a prospective customer down the funnel. For me, that’s a helpful way to think about the goal of a CV.

Ok, that’s kind of the easy stuff. Here’s the hard stuff:

  • Get good at telling your story or get someone else to help you tell it.

  • Know the outcome you’re driving towards.

  • Identify the weaknesses in your narrative.

Telling your career story in your CV is hard because you’re in current role but you’re also the narrator that needs to tell a compelling story and sell yourself.

Demonstrating impact seems to be somewhat difficult for a number of people. It seems that most people, myself included, only really take time to think about the impact that they’ve had in their roles when they’re revamping their CVs.

The process of updating your CV with impact points might be made easier if we all took 5-10 minutes every week to answer a few questions:

  1. What did I do this week?

  2. What impact did I have?

  3. How did I achieve that impact?

It’s difficult to outsource the writing of your CV to someone else because if you give them a CV with bullet points that say “Implemented the plan/Oversaw a team” they have no way of coming up with anything else to put in its place.

Anyways, if you find it difficult to tell your story in your CV, I’m thinking about sending out a short survey every Friday afternoon, with three questions from above, starting in January. We’ll collect your answers and you can review whenever you want or more likely every few months.

If there’s some record of the work that you’ve done, you can look back at it and craft a better story, or think differently about the impact you’re having while you’re in your current role. Additionally, other people – friends, colleagues, whoever – will be able to help craft your CV story with this additional aide.

The Memo: #27 (161+ remote jobs)

Hey folks,

I stumbled on this excellent blog post by Patrick McKenzie from back in 2011. Although the post is titled “Don't Call Yourself A Programmer, And Other Career Advice,” there’s some great career advice that I think is widely applicable.

I highlight three key takeaways below:

  • Finding a job via a job board is the exception not the rule.

    This the hard reality of finding any role, whether in be on-site or remote. My philosophy for people in this community has always been that you should use the job placement as jumping off point. Others have made this point, but I’ll make it again here: there are more remote roles open than are advertised. Find a point of contact and reach out to someone at the company in question. If I can find an email through my network or this community, reach out.

  • People who are good at negotiating make more.

    Being better a negotiating is key. I’ve been collecting salary info to help put people in the community in a better position when they’re negotiating. If you haven’t already, you can fill out that form here, and add your CV and recent salary range.

  • Grow your network.

    This is one of the reasons why I started the community 1-on-1s. If you haven’t yet, sign up to connect to others in the community here.


Support the newsletter and community by becoming a founding member.

I’m extending the founding member deal, where you can join for just $79/lifetime (one-time fee). If you’re interested, send me an email with a couple lines about yourself.

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


General interest

Interesting communityRock the Boat is a podcast and community focused on Asian Americans challenging the status quo. This is an interesting model to consider if you’re thinking about launching a community: tell stories that’ll inspire your audience.

“[W]e find that people with longer commuting time report systematically lower subjective well-being.” Interesting paper and discussion on HackerNews.

I’m really fascinated by this approach to the work week: 5 hours per day, 4 days per week.

Project idea (very hard): build an ad blocker that works on Facebook (read how FB makes that difficult).

The Webb Blog explores the idea of a personal API, which seems really interesting.

I’m starting to think more about design, and how design can be a differentiator in building a community; I’ve been building a personal list of great landing pages, logos, etc.. This one really stood out.


Notes:

  • Thinking about joining a coding bootcamp? One coding bootcamp has offered me a referral of 5% or about $500 for anyone that signs up. If you’re thinking of joining a coding bootcamp and this is of interest, you can sign up via the unique link they sent and I’ll give you back the referral fee. Email me.

  • LIV: I reached out to COO & co-founder of LIV, AJ Shewki, and he confirms that the entire team is remote. LIV, which is trying to make VR gaming more interactive, recently raised a $1M roundSetting up a time to chat with AJ, but wanted to give the community a heads up. LIV currently has two positions posted to AngelList: Unreal and C++ Engineer and Web Engineer.

  • Upwork: aside from its sales staff in Chicago, Upwork will consider remote candidates for all other roles. There are number of product and data/business intelligence roles currently listed.

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.

Cheers,

Chris ✌️
