Hello business team. Look at your office, now back to mine, now back to your office, now back to mine. Sadly we’re not in the same office, but if you closed your eyes and fired up Skype you could pretend you’re in my office. Look down, back up, where are you? You’re in San Francisco with half your company. What’s in your hand, back at me. I have it, it’s a spec sheet to that feature you love. Look again, the spec sheet is now a production release. Anything is possible even when you’re in SFO and we’re in PDX. I’m on a horse.
Body wash aside, I’ve got two things for you; having offices in different cities is great for your start-up. Second, having offices in different cities can ruin your start-up. PlayHaven is headquartered in San Francisco with a sister office in Portland, OR. This helps our business by increasing our hiring shadow to two tech heavy cities. This hurts our business because half of our team is inaccessible in meat space.
