In today’s fast-paced business environment, managers always have to find solutions while traveling around the world. More often than not, managers have to work from cafes, airports and various other places which are not necessarily suitable for work, but can provide a minimum space and comfort for writing emails and maybe even Skype calls.
To myself as a Country Manager at Crossover in Romania, traveling has become a style of working and living, as we organize monthly hiring tournaments in two of the biggest tech poles in the country: Bucharest and Cluj-Napoca. My schedule gets even more crowded in the spring and in the autumn, as these are the most fruitful seasons in terms of community events.
Another reason for looking for coworking spaces in these cities is that most of our partners are located here, so we wanted to provide an alternative to the 100% remote jobs we offer—a place to meet, socialize or work, thus removing the necessity of coworking daily in a certain place.
Coworking spaces have proven to be the best option for us, as they make room for more interaction than the usual private office. Whenever our colleagues are stuck in a rut and need someone to brainstorm with or simply need to focus in a noise-free environment, the coworking spaces can provide both. Meeting new communities and attending events is also a usually welcomed add-on.
Knowing our needs, it was hard for us to decide which coworking spaces to choose for our remote teams, as most of them could have been suitable. However, we have also taken into consideration our future plans and the list has downsized; the ability to scale our membership fastly, a generous event space for our meetups or simply access to the communities that we wanted to support have been key points into taking our decision. Nonetheless, these still are the best coworking spaces in Romania:
