NoDesk: Issue #138
A weekly newsletter with the best new remote jobs, stories and ideas from the remote work community, and occasional offbeat pieces to feed your curiosity.
By Daniel (@nodeskco).
This issue is brought to you by our new community partner: Echo.
Echo is “Slack for voice” - voice messaging for remote teams with features like automated transcription and Focus mode to help you stay in the zone and avoid distractions.
Echo fits perfectly between typing and “jumping on a quick call”.
It is designed for both interactive and asynchronous communication and combines convenience of voice and benefits of text. Click and hold to record messages to teammates or channels. Instant delivery and playback. Listen to responses as they arrive or catch up later in message history. Speak, listen, and read. No typing required.
All features are free for teams of all sizes until the end of 2020.
100,000s of people each year trust NoDesk to help them find a remote job.
