As at today, Monday, 9th of July, 2018; Extrafemi Social becomes a 100% remote social media agency. Being 100% remote is an idea we have mulled over since the birth of the agency in 2014. We have had to be deliberate about the kind of jobs we took, how we approached growing as an agency and several other things. While we wanted to be the very best at what we do, we also wanted to be a small nimble agency that was the engine behind making big things happen.
Why remote working though?
With a view of the never ending traffic situation in Lagos, it became a thing of concern for team members to have a work-life balance.
We wanted our team members to work more efficiently as well as have more money left to spend at the end of the month. :-)
As at January 2018, We took this idea a step further and began experimenting with the idea of a company that is 50% remote. We had a measure of success with this and with a bit more tweaking are pushing for 100% remote working.
Here is to the future.
