How often do remote devs visit the office?


I'm advising people who want Clojure devs to create internal tools. One problem is they seem more comfortable with face-to-face meetings.


(Personally, I'd guess they'd be perfectly fine with an in-person kickoff meeting at the start of a project, and then at some sparse intervals; otherwise skype or something.)


But I don't know what "sparse interval" means. Monthly? Would someone in the region be ok with bi-weekly?


@tjg This depends on so many things, at least for me. My priority is mainly commute time. I am fine with everything I can reach with my bike on a daily base. Other than that depends on the money. Ideally commute with train counts as work time (working with laptop). Other than that I avoid everything by car, as rush hours stress me very much and I consider it a waste of time in every regard. I can only repeat myself, in these days there are not much reasons to have to commute as a software developer. It's mainly a waste of money and just causes more pollution.


@tjg: Once a year, for me. But it involves 7h flight and 1h drive.


@tjg: I’m about 3.5 - 4 hours from my office, and I visit probably about once every four months. Every now and then more, but that’s mainly because I have family / friends in that city.


Hi everyone! At Funding Circle we’re hiring full-time Clojure and FP developers and Clojure Data Engineers. Unfortunately, we do not have remote employees (as I know many Clojure Devs are) but we do have offices in San Francisco, London, and Berlin. Ping me if you’re intertested in hearing more about how Funding Circle is using Clojure to build a better financial world.
