Reflections on remote data science work

It's been about a year and a half since I joined Automattic as a remote data scientist. This is the longest I've been in one position since finishing my PhD in 2012. In this post, I briefly discuss some of the top pluses and minuses of remote work, based on my experience so far.

If you're an experienced data scientist, working remotely should definitely be on the menu. It obviously doesn't work for everyone (and every company!) but, as this post presents, it has serious strengths to recommend it.

Potentially the most valuable part of the article is the link to the list of remote companies. If you're hunting, this list is golden. I personally wouldn't recommend this to less experienced data professionals.
