Three Years of Working From Home (Tips & Tricks)

Update March 2020: I no longer work remotely but I consider these tips are still relevant, particularly since COVID-19 has meant that many employees around the globe are now required to work from home. I also wrote a higher level essay on reflection of working from home from an employee’s perspective.


September 2018 marks my three year anniversary (Matticversary) at Automattic, which  means I have been solely working from home for three years now.

Working from home every day can at times feel like either, or both, the best thing in the world, or the worse thing ever invented. I personally don’t believe that full-time working from home is suitable for everyone as I’ve found it orders of magnitude more difficult than working in an office environment.
