Wade Foster and his co-founder started Zapier (it rhymes with ‘happier’) back in 2011
during a hackathon. Now, the company has over 160 employees and no office. Zapier is a
fully-remote company, and has no intention of changing that. Here, Wade shares his
processes for running a fully remote organization – how Zapier goes about hiring and
onboarding their employees, how they run meetings, and how they work to continuously
improve their culture.

These insights from someone who has had to think deeply about these issues are useful to
leaders in both remote and non-remote companies. Wade goes into great detail about the
processes Zapier use to improve meetings, hiring, and company culture – there’s a lot to be
learned from what this fast-growing company is doing.


Wade’s talk is followed by a mammoth Q&A – full of insights from someone who lives and
breathes remote work. Make sure you stay for the whole video.
