144: Why We Sent a Whaler to Buenos Aires

We interview Meredith Esquivel, Marketing Manager and Dean of Whole Whale University about why she spent the month of September 2019 in Buenos Aires working remotely. Meredith explains the perk that Whole Whale offers through https://www.hackerparadise.org/ that pays for whalers (staff) to work remotely for the company. The catch is that employees must agree to stay on for an extra year after the trip (or agree to pay back the cost). We explore the pros and cons of the program and why we’re keeping it.
