Founder Summit in Mexico City featured image

I knew I missed conferences. But I did not fully understand how much. Being an introvert (that can act as an extrovert when needed) I rather enjoyed the lack of social interactions in the last year and a half. But I was getting more and more groggy as months went by. Nothing major, but I […]

Attending MicroConf Europe ’21 in Dubrovnik featured image

MicroConf Europe in 2019 was the second to last conference I attended before COVID-19 struck. This year MicroConf returned to Dubrovnik. And it’s an absolutely amazing location, plus the weather was great all three days. The conference was not large in 2019 but it was even smaller now – and that’s a good thing. I […]

Why we’re building a house in the middle of the ocean featured image

Let’s get the clickbaiting out of the way first: we’re not technically building a house, we’re renovating an existing villa. To make it more suitable for remote teams. The rest is true, though. It’s on a unique subtropical island in the Atlantic Ocean! OK, but why on Earth would a software company build a vacation […]

Niteo IRL: YA’RLY featured image

After our first virtual IRL in July-2020, it’s time for our first remote-first IRL. Which means Niteans were given options to plan and decide a location where they could meet other nearby Niteans and connect with the rest virtually. So, the plan was to divide and organise Mini-IRLs – one in Lanzarote and one in […]

Niteo IRL: O’RLY featured image

As a remote-first company, Niteo invests in doing bi-annual IRLs (In Real Life) meetups to get everyone in the same time and space. Spending time with Niteans face-to-face is invaluable. The bonds we create during IRLs are strong — but our meaningful connections do not come from the onsites alone. We consciously work to develop […]

Keeping your head above water by managing your tasks and time featured image

In this blog post, I’ll write a little bit about the tools and methods I used to manage the chaos that used to be my workday. In my previous job, I was managing the IT departments in four different high schools. Every day at work I would get at least 50 emails and a lot […]

IRL #8: Bangkok featured image

Wohooo! It’s 2020 and time for our first IRL of the year Decade. We decided on Bangkok (known as Krung Thep in Thai) as the IRL location since it has relaxed visa norms and for its undisputed reputation as a fun city. By late Sunday evening and after the hustle-and-bustle for the few Niteans, the […]

IRL#7: Ljubljana featured image

It’s mid-year and it was time for In-Real-Life meetup in the hometown of Niteo, Ljubljana. Mid-year IRL is usually a bit more relaxed since there is no major reviewing or planning that needs to take place. Therefore we had a quick overview of the last half a year and then worked on a few important […]

We got banned from PayPal after 12 years of business (updated) featured image

Update: PayPal restored our account, and they were as descriptive as when banning us. This was after a call and tweet confirming the “final decision”. We’re appreciative nonetheless. 🙂 Original post continues below You’d think that being a legitimate online business, having 12 years of history with PayPal, and hundreds of thousands of dollars processed, […]
