Hey folks, the last week has gone a lot faster than I expected. My first week at a new job was fun, busy, and a little bit overwhelming as I expected, there are some learnings I’m writing here for you. Besides, I also managed to make some updates on my website and wrote 2 articles this week.
Learnings from first week at a remote job
As a new remote engineer, the first week is usually packed with networking with people, onboarding into technical architecture and actual repositories.
At a remote startup where things move fast and remotely, networking is not easy and you have to be proactive with it. What I did was going to the architecture, making some notes and assumptions myself, then setup quick chats with several people in the team to quickly go through, ask if there’s any mistake or things I should learn more, and also use that as a chance to get to know each other.
