The Company

People are happiest and most productive when they have the flexibility to choose when, where and how they work. Distributed work is the future and we're on a mission to enable it.

We're building Nooks to help remote workers feel less remote. Distributed teams should communicate and collaborate as well as, if not better than they could working in-person. Information and ideas should flow between team members seamlessly. To accomplish this, we need to break down the social barriers from not working in the same physical room.

Teams using Nooks have said it's changed how they work. They significantly reduced their reliance on calendar meetings, stopped wasting hours of back & forth on Slack, started having quick ad-hoc conversations, and new team members immediately felt like they're part of the team.
