Anna Sieniawska – Remote Work Consultant Ireland

my remote work experience

ABOUT ANNA

I have been working fully remotely since 2012. In the last seven years, as a Head of Operations, I have managed remote teams supporting over 1 million customers

Our teams were distributed between 6 continents – every person from sales and marketing, customer support, product, finance, tech, etc., worked either from home or co-working space. Each of our customer support agents was located in different parts of the globe — from Venezuela, Portugal, France, Italy, to the Philippines, and more. In that time, the company grew from 1 to 4 brands, developed over 200 products, and seen exponential revenue growth. During all this work, I was changing countries & experiencing new cultures every few months – 16 countries to be precise.
