Virtual teams are becoming the norm - which means the demand for remote managers is also on the rise. But what's the difference between managing in-person vs virtually? And how can one thrive in this new, virtual culture? Limor Bergman Gross manages a large remote team as the Director of Engineering at DigitalOcean, and is joining us for a live Q&A to help you become a better remote manager, and employee! MEET THE SPEAKER: Limor Bergman Gross is the Engineering Director for DigitalOcean. She was introduced to engineering in high school, and really loved the programming classes, especially the language, Pascal. After her military service she completed a bachelor’s degree in computer science and started working in her 3rd year - the rest is history. She actually did not find DigitalOcean, they found her. When she moved to the US from Israel, she had no connections, so she invested a lot of time and efforts in building her LinkedIn profile and connections. This payed off as both Digital Ocean and former employer, VMware, discovered her online!
