We optimise for being remote-first first, but we also deeply value spending time together in-person. We get to know each other better, it’s valuable for doing complex or deeply collaborative work together, and it helps to ⚡ make remote working work ⚡.

This page outlines how summits, offsites, and team meets work, and includes guidance for self-organising.

<aside> 📌 See also our Work From Anywhere policy, which includes some overlapping guidance. If you’re meeting colleagues in a different country, this policy also applies.
