Description

Remotely One is a free community for remote workers and freelancers from all over the world. Inside, you can meet new people and learn valuable tips and insights.

The community works mainly on a Slack group. To access, you have to fill an application form with details like where are you from, the type of work you do, what type of remote worker you are, among other things.

Once Remotely One's team revises your application and accepts it, you will be able to access the Slack group. Inside the online group, members share valuable resources such as articles and multimedia assets. Different channels organize conversations by topic.

For example, you can find valuable tips on channels like #remote, #co-work, #distributed teams, and #telecommuters. There are spaces for diverse types of workers.

Additionally, to make new friends and socialize with other members, you can join channels like #random, #office photos, #relationships, and #today's goals. These allow you to find like-minded peers that share the same hobbies and personal interests while connecting with others on a deeper level.

Remotely One's community has also an app. This app serves as a space to make connections and know new people. You can choose among three interfaces (friends, dating, or career) according to your goals and interests.

You can decide to schedule a meet-up with people you find interesting. The app allows you to choose whether you'd like to interact in-person, or virtually (via video calls, phone calls, or texts).

Besides the Slack group and the app, the community hosts special events occasionally. There are virtual events such as webinars, and in-person events such as meet-ups. To find out about these events, check out the community's Slack group, where Remotely One's team posts updates regularly.

Place

Meetings

Through Remotely One's app, members can schedule their own meetings with other members of the community.

The app has three interfaces to choose from: friends, dating, and career. According to your interests and goals, you can find like-minded people in the app to avoid remote-working isolation. You can choose to meet other people the way you like since the app contemplates in-person events but also video calls, phone calls, and texts. 

Besides the Remotely One app, members interact with each other in the Slack group, where you can find useful tips for remote workers, telecommuters, distributed teams, coworking spaces, and more.

Learning Events

The Remotely One app allows you to find excellent matches for career-related topics. Inside the app, you will discover awesome career mentorship opportunities, and get to know people who can teach you a lot about the world of remote working.

Additionally, the community hosts regular webinars for freelancers and remote workers. You can find out about these events in the Slack group, where new updates are posted regularly about all sorts of events that can be of interest to remote workers.

Networking Events

Members interact mostly with each other in the Slack group, where besides the channels for learning and sharing tips and resources, there are other channels dedicated to networking.

For example, the #random channel serves as a space for members to share non-work-related topics, strengthening relationships, and forming new friendships by sharing hobbies and personal interests. Similarly, the channel #office photos is a place that features members' offices, allowing you to know other members of the community on a more personal level.

On the other hand, you can network and know new people through the community's app. Inside the app, you can match with like-minded people and schedule in-person events, as well as video calls, phone calls, and texts.

Content Library

Inside the Slack group, you can find valuable resources in different channels. Members share blog posts about coworking and teleworking in a channel called #articles.

Additionally, you can find other multimedia assets shared by members every day on topic-specific channels such as #remote, #co-work, #distributed teams, and #telecommuters.
