Most remote teams have a huge lack of communication.
Some choose to go extremely asynchronous, and all the communication happens via text. Interviewing people we found that people like to talk to other people! (we're social animals, right?) but the communication tools out there add a lot of friction (that's why most calls are scheduled days into the future).
In-person communication happens effortlessly and people wanted that same kind of feeling.
That's why we built Tandem.
