"Using Instant Teams for our remote team has been incredibly easy, and with little risk. I call our account manager and say, ‘I need a writer’ and they provide me with options. I had one instance where I called at 9:00 am, and by 3:00 pm I had someone new on the team."
“My company helps entrepreneurs and digital marketers with information products and software. We’re all remote -- we all work from home and using Instant Teams (previously known as MadSkills) made a lot of sense for us. We’ve hired nine military spouses to our team so far.
I’ve enjoyed the added benefit that they’re military spouses because I respect what they do and the sacrifices that they make for our country. The military spouses we’ve hired are amazing. They write our content, keep our finance systems up to date, support our customers, design our graphics and support our team. Some have odd schedules, but that’s okay. We all communicate through Trello so it’s easy for everyone to know the status of any given project at any time.
I know that remote work for military spouses is important, and I also want that flexibility for myself. It’s a huge benefit to work from home so you can live the life you choose. Especially for moms like me, being able to have that flexibility is key. Having a sick kid at home and knowing that you don't have to call into work is a gift. No matter the situation, I know our virtual team of military spouses will get the job done.
Using Instant Teams to build our virtual team has been incredibly easy, and with little risk. I call our account manager and say, ‘I need a writer’ and then they provide me with options. I had one instance where I called at 9:00 am, and by 3:00 pm I had someone on the team. That's how much I trust the process and trust Instant Teams.
The team we work with is fantastic because they're driven, adapt well, and are highly intelligent. I don’t have payroll headaches or HR related issues, I simply have amazing team members that get things done. They like working with us because they get to use their skills and don't have the stress of finding new work when they have to move. It’s a true win-win situation."
