We’ve got another fun episode! This time, Alex quizzes Andres and Erik to see how they’d act if they were CEOs leading a remote-first company. If you’re curious about how to base and set some ground rules for compensations within a globally distributed team, then this is an episode you don’t want to miss.

The first question (and potentially easiest one) is:

"So imagine you have members of your team in two different countries. One country, the currency is Colombian pesos. It's Colombia and another country, the currency is Mexican pesos, Mexico. In which  currency do you set your salaries for the members of your team?"

And we go down a rabbit hole from there! It's important to note that these are quite realistic scenarios that you’ve probably experienced, or will experience in the future. Luckily, there are global payroll services popping up like boundlessHQ, Deel and Rose Global to ease the entire process and make sure you are compliant along the way.

Again, we continue to take in requests and suggestions on who Josephine should be visiting and interviewing for season 2. If you have any suggestions, please leave it in the comments below or contact us here.

Hosted by Remoter Ambassador Josephine Tse and Torre's Chief Growth Officer Andrés Cajiao, this podcast will take you on a journey as we cover topics surrounding how to build and/or scale your very own remote-first teams.
