What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

Moving to a fully remote environment can be challenging when it comes to collaboration, we use technology to bridge that gap. We use video calls for code reviews, Slack for sharing ideas and updates, and Slab for documentation. This helps increase knowledge sharing across the company. These are a few tools we use to remove tech barriers remotely.
