Position on remote work

Remote job: partially
Remote restrictions: Work from home in Melbourne n number of days per week (negotiable but with the expectation of some days in the office)
Remote leeway: The amount of work from home really comes down to how well you communicate, how experienced you are and the type of work we have on at the moment. As an engineer CTO, I understand how attractive it is to work from home in terms of getting stuff done, however this needs to be balanced with communication as we shape the software and what direction it needs to take.
