As a continuation of season 1 with Andrés Cajiao and Alexander Torrenegra, Remoter continues in its second season with the opportunity to interview some remote work leaders, ranging from companies, consultants, advocates, and more, to add to Remoter’s stash of free resources and human-centered stories, enriching our educational platform about remote work.

On this recording of the Remoter podcast, COO James Hirst sat down with Remoter to share his message for leaders embarking remote/distributed team management. Tyk is an API (application program interface) management platform. As an open-source gateway, Tyk’s proprietary piece of software allows people to manage the gateway easily and at scale. A tech company at its finest, they’ve got team members spread across the globe, covering all timezone sectors from Asia to the Americas. A big part of their success is thanks to the trickle-down effect of very cognizant leaders. Leaders who valued what their community of users had to say, leaders who were keen on building a lean operation to achieve that. Being remote out of necessity since day 1 meant they had to build the company with a remote ethos from the get-go and have only been working towards improvements ever since.
