    Agreed we do exist! But being a Unicorn means you get to be really picky.

    Personally moving my family just so I can stare at a computer screen in the office instead of home/coffee shop/beach is a deal breaker.

    The sooner organizations embrace remote work (esp for things like this) the sooner they'll discover the massive amt of talent that really does exist.

      Completely agreed on this. I'm in a similar position - currently working both full-time on-site as well as part-time remotely; however, I'll be definitively looking for a remote role after my full-time is over.

      Ignoring remote means that you will have to pick from much smaller pool of talent just for the convenience of having someone physically sit with the other people in the office. I've experienced much more communication problems in on-site roles than in all of my remote career. I wish more companies would embrace remote and stop associating it with outsourced cheap labor and low quality work.
