Hi, my name is Max. I’m an analytics manager on the revenue strategy and operations team. I’ve been with Wonolo for 5 years and I’m based in San Francisco.
What is one perk of working from home at Wonolo that you really appreciate?
One thing I really like about working from home is getting to spend more time outdoors during the day. It’s super easy to take the dog to the park and get some fresh air. I like not being on that crowded train or sitting in traffic to commute. 😉
What is one piece of advice you would give to someone who has never worked remotely before?
If you’ve never worked remotely before, I would recommend setting clear boundaries for work hours. It’s really tempting to keep your laptop open while you’re eating breakfast or dinner. Don’t do it. I found that keeping your laptop off outside of work is key to a healthy work-life balance. And if you’re still having trouble disconnecting, try giving yourself your own mini commute by walking around the neighborhood or going to the store when your workday is over.
What is one piece of “work from home” equipment you couldn’t live without?
One piece of work from home equipment that I couldn’t live without would be noise-canceling headphones. They’re perfect during focus time. They keep any distracting noises out, such as your neighbor, your dog barking, and you can listen to music!
