Lately, there’s been a lot of discussion about the convergence of tech and art, specifically when it comes to Burning Man. As highlighted by Tech Crunch, the annual arts festival is beginning to be seen as the ultimate respite for creative technologists looking to express themselves.
Working as a remote team member, it's hard to define when an in-person meeting is truly needed. Sure, there's the occasional *critical all-day customer meeting* that calls for travel, and most would agree that distributed teams genuinely benefit from occasional retreats conducted in person. By and large, though, I can do my job remotely from wherever I'd like and be in continual contact with my coworkers via Slack, email, or the occasional phone call.

Oh, hi. I’m Nick John.
I joined Redox at the beginning of June as a Solutions Engineer. In reality, though, my relationship with Redox began a very long time ago: when I worked at Epic as the Director of Interface Implementation, I found myself on a number of projects with the founders of Redox, as well as several of the developers and Customer Success staff now working here, too. We each left Epic, one by one, to spread our wings and find new ways to help the world. I set sail for Portland to live the city life and climb its glorious mountains, while my friends set their minds to solving interoperability in healthcare.
