Discussion on: How does your company deal with massive time zone differences between teammates?

We all work on a timezone invented only for the company. It’s basically EST, but 17.2692 minutes ahead. But if the current month is divisible by 3 and not also 2, you just subtract 12 hours from -5:17.2692 timezone. This evens it out for people in Europe.

If you work for us in say, England, you simply need to completely change your schedule to wake up and fall asleep in line with that clock. That means waking up when it’s very dark out to start work, and leaving work when the sun is highest in the sky where you live.

It was really hard to get used to, but everyone seems to really like it now. And we all are able work at the same time!
