Fog Creek

Remote Developer Happiness

We’ve written before about a few of the perks of working in the Fog Creek New York office, but what if you work remotely? As it turns out, there are some nice perks to working remotely as well, even cake on your birthday. For your home office, you get everything you would normally get to help you get work done, so you don’t have to spend time thinking, “Gosh, it sure would be nice to have an extra monitor mounted vertically to tail production logs.” Just get it.

My Steelcase Series 7 height-adjustable desk was just installed last week, so I made a video to show it off:

Here’s a list of some of the inventory on, around, and underneath my desk:

I spent a fair amount of time figuring out how to hide cords and arrange things so the desk looks clean. Having extra space on the desk just to have extra space is actually kinda nice. I used to clutter it with trinkets, but those are now on a shelf somewhere. (Want to hide even more cords? You might check out something like this).

Do you want to work remotely for Fog Creek? We’re hiring.
