Is there a timezone restriction in terms of working hours? Asking because I wanted to know how a person living in Korea and Morocco can work together.

Is it flexible work hours, as long as 8 hours is worked? How is it done?

We all work our own hours and do most communication async. Typically we try to overlap for a couple hours with our direct teammates. We also have an all-hands meeting once per week which ends up being late in the evening for me.

I personally feel more productive working here in Korea since I basically get 6 hours per day of uninterrupted work time.

sounds like an awesome work environment. I just came back from Korea two days ago and miss it already lol. Hope you don’t get too wet from the monsoon season. :slight_smile:
