tools for the wfh apocalypse

Well… It’s been an interesting couple of weeks.

Viv, the kids, and I decided to bug out back to Australia last Thursday to care for our parents while the COVID-19 situation stabilizes in the US and evolves here in Australia. We’re very much looking forward to getting back to America, but we both agreed that being down-under is the best thing for everyone right now.

But, the show must go on.

Bugcrowd kicked off WFH recommendations very early in the crisis, and was among the first organizations to enforce a work from home policy as it unfolded.

This was never a retreat for us - It’s a part of our core thesis that #ittakesacrowd and taking responsibility to care for our community as well as ourselves. If anything it has strengthened our resolve, and we’re doubling down on our commitment to both the crowd and our customers.

I wanted to share a quick rundown of some of the tools that I use, and that I’ve helped the move go down almost unnoticed by the rest of Bugcrowd’s work from home employee base:

x.ai - Virtual Assistant

Zoom

Fancyhands

Google Mini

I’ll add more here as I think of them. What are some of the unexpectedly helpful tools you’re using to survive the COVID19 WFH?
