We are a distributed company that allows our team to manage how they work, when they work, and where they work.
Some of us enjoy working remotely from co-working spaces in the ****heart of London while others are creating marketing campaigns from the forests in Bali, writing code from their cabin in Tennessee, and leading teams from their homes in Amsterdam.
The cover of the New Yorker in this issue clearly shows the life of "working from home", but this is not all that working remotely has to offer.
Our mission is to give you the freedom to work where you thrive! You can choose to live in the hustle and bustle of a big city or you can choose to work from the mountains of Norway and in your free time live out your dreams of volunteering on a reindeer farm.
The point is: you're free to make that decision, you're free to do whatever works for you.
<aside> 🙌 We at Whereby believe in flexibility, and empowering you to work from anywhere.
We’re here to reimagine the way work is done, and make it more sustainable.
Our product allows people to have breakfast with their children rather than being stuck in traffic.
The tools you use at work should help you focus and aid you with doing what you need to do, instead of distracting and interrupting you. With this in mind, we built Whereby to be there when you need it, be focused on the people in the meeting and be flexible to adapt to your needs.
Flexible working can have real impact. Commuting into big cities that are steadily becoming more polluted and congested is not the answer. Neither is flying across the globe for a single business meeting. Decoupling work from location makes it possible to live outside the big cities AND have a fulfilling job.

Happier employees means a longer retention. Research has shown that employees who could choose to work from home, had around 20% higher productivity. Being set up for flexible working means being able to hire the best talent from anywhere, increasing the company’s chance of success. Being able to serve customers and work with partners globally can also help companies grow faster.
Flexible working means being able to manage their own day, by being able to take meetings from anywhere. Less time has to be spent on commuting, and being able to concentrate, leading to reduced stress-levels, and more time to focus, think and grow meaningfully.
