  • Ukufu is about 2 years old and has mostly been a Hybrid Team that gets together 2x per week
  • All of their processes have been setup for a distributed-first configuration
  • They plugged in a little bit of in-office interactions to build team rapport
  • With COVID and team members moving out of Sydney, they’ve switched to a fully distributed setup
  • They have team members in Dubai, Nepal, Eastern Europe, and other regions
  • While they regularly work asynchronously, they add Zoom video calls and face-to-face meetings to nurture relationships
  • Their product team practices cowork sessions
  • The engineering team tends to work asynchronously more regularly
  • Their cowork sessions are 2-hour blocks of time when they leave their cameras and mics on
  • Kevin is a big fan of 2nd and 3rd PC screens
  • Hire the right people who will thrive in a distributed team
  • Younger people and extroverts may not be the best fit
  • Quality microphones are underrated
