I’m writing this from a small wooden room in a village called Pamparato at the foot of the italian alps, in Italy’s piedmont region. Today, my boss Eric is on a plane high above the pacific ocean. Xavier, co-founder and CTO is somewhere between France and Spain, and the others are either in the offices in Bordeaux (France) or San Francisco. We’re under the influence of the cloud, a hybrid model combining remote and local hubs, from international locations. Considering we are a small (rapidly growing ahem!) startup and not a multinational company, we’re spread pretty wide across a diverse global landscape.
