Otta's take

Theo Margolius headshot

Theo Margolius

COO of Otta

The number of companies switching to fully-remote set-up is booming. Aiming to capitalise on this, Remote helps companies of all sizes hire and manage international employees across benefits, taxes, payroll and compliance.

According to Remote, local and international regulations constantly change. Thus, the company's unique selling point is that its law attorneys and HR specialists are focused on supervising regulations on a daily basis and ensuring that the clients avoid expensive compliance mistakes. Remote also differentiates itself through its network of local legal entities that cover all of the countries they offer services for to ensure the clients receive the best protection in the industry. Moreover, the company offers a platform for distributed teams that makes it easy for companies to onboard and pay international contractors and employees.

Remote's history of funding - that helped secure its $3Billion valuation - has supported expansion across markets, as well as being used to expand partnerships and integrations. Further development of its tool suite can be expected, as the company pushes to be the first name in distributed HR.
