The Interview

  • Tell us about what you do and where your team is located.
    ‍Slite is a workspace for async first teams. It is a place to document all youR work, and discuss key topics without crowding Slack or relying on synchronous meetings. This is a private beta product, you can request access at

  • What's a modern benefit you offer your team that isn't mainstream yet?
    An interesting one is great service built by friends, we offer for free to our employees an on demand mental therapy service.

    2021 was really challenging to many, and in a few months this proved to be very useful already! The no-brainer approach for the employee is awesome: you have none of the classic friction to go to a therapist (the platform select great ones, you can book online, everything is paid for you).

  • Tell us about your approach to meetings vs async communication?
    We literally developed Discussions to remove the need for most meetings and treat important topics through 1 long thread of thoughtful messages, powered by our super rich editor.

    On a personal level I have video calls all day though, it unlocks serendipity in the remote setup for me. But these calls are 90% of the time just in 1:1. I have only 1 recurring meeting, every 2 weeks with more than 3 people.
  • What's your favourite tool for remote collaboration?
  • Can you give us one prediction for the future of work?
    Remote is the norm, async will follow as the next trend!
