Working remotely can be seen as difficult, and onboarding engineers starting their careers doubly so. Drawing from my experience working at Elastic, an all-remote company which is behind Elasticsearch, Kibana, Beats, and Logstash, we will discuss the process of onboarding junior engineers in the context of remote companies, and tips for everyone to succeed while working in a distributed model.

● How I got into a technical role with an “alternative” education ( bootcamp ).
● How Elastic started to be distributed by design.
● What our shared values are and what we have learned as we progressed and grew to our current size.
● What the day of a remote worker can look like.
● What we are using in terms of tooling.
● How we hire and onboard new employees.
