Niteo IRL: YA’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 […]

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 […]
