Welcome to the “Head of Remote” resource link list. This site is intended to provide a repository of the best people to follow, resources to reference, and tools to utilize in leading a remote-first implementation or transformation in a company of any size. This site was inspired by GitLab's "Head of Remote" page. It reminded me of the old remote-only.org page, and this site is meant to be a straight link list similar to the 2019 version of Remote - Only (dot) org.
