When you work remotely, it’s easy to become invisible. In a world of Zoom calls and emails, it’s harder to have an impact on your organization. It’s harder to bond with your boss and your co-workers. It’s harder to get noticed and valued. But not impossible.
Leah Ryder writes extensively about working remotely. As the Brand & Content Marketing Lead at Trello, her distributed team manages five blogs, all their social media, quarterly cross-team campaigns, community engagement and copywriting for this project management service that has 35 million registered users.
