This Is What a Remote Office Looks Like: Home Office and Workspace Photos

One of the less frequently talked about benefits of working in a remote team is that you have complete control over your workspace. In a traditional office space, you're forced to work in a one-size-fits-all environment, which is often suboptimal for everyone.

At Zapier, everyone creates their own workspace, and today we thought it would be fun to share. Here's a peek at the home offices or workspaces of some of the Zapier teammates. (Note: These aren't in any particular order. And some of us admit to cleaning off our desks before taking the photos.)

Additional Thoughts

Fascinating to me is that all of us work great together. But if forced to be in an office with one another for 250 days a year, we might not like working with each other quite as much.

Working distributed thus helps everyone optimize their environment in a way that suites them best while not distracting others on the team.
