Working at Deep Work
For each client or project, we put together the best possible team like a Hollywood production studio. Everyone turns up, completes their specific job to a high standard specific to their skillset, then moves onto the next project (inside or outside Deep Work).
Why Join Deep Work?
We’re two founders and a community, who built Deep Work from scratch, with no external investment. This allows Deep Work to be highly flexible and make strategic decisions together with you.
Focus on Deep Work
We’re continuously iterating to find the most enjoyable ways of working. We aim to provide the security and stability of a full-time job with the flexibility and personal freedom of freelancing. In addition, we constantly try to remove or automate shallow work, so the work is always outcome oriented, highly efficient and focused on what you love doing.
Cutting-edge tech projects
We work on projects that are interesting, grow us personally and contribute to a brighter future. We currently work with highly experienced technical founding teams to create new products that haven’t existed before. Every single project offers an endless amount of creative opportunities and because of our short turnaround rate you learn a lot, very fast.
We use digital tools to organise our network of freelancers in novel ways. As an open and inclusive community we design new products together, learn from each other and make decentralised decisions to evolve. In the future, this will be rewarded in shared ownership through a Deep Work token.
Remote and short working days
Our working days don’t last longer than 4-5 hours and we prioritise personal health to make sure we can work to our best performance. We constantly improve ourselves, each other and optimise for quality of life. You can work from wherever you want as long as you have a stable internet connection and a computer with a camera.
You will work with very sharp product designers, facilitators, user researchers and highly intelligent technical innovators. There is always potential for personal projects and collaborations, which Deep Work funds on a monthly basis. Our clients are also our friends and relationships can be long-lasting and always mutually beneficial.

When you start your computer you press a power button to get electricity to flow through its internal circuits. The power button of the world computer is an interface, that will help you become part of the circuitry. Here is how it will look and generate money for you in the future.
I’ve written a deeply personal post on mental health, meditation and therapy. I’m hoping sharing the techniques influences others in a dark place. Or, used as I do now as an awesome tool for creativity, productive work and a life full of awesome challenges.
A little late to it - last night I finished "Born To Run" by Christopher McDougall. The front cover has a review "destined to become a classic" - I wholeheartedly agree after enjoying this book page to page. A science book yet the closest thing I've to a novel...
The current climate has shown the businesses around the world the unthinkable was possible — employees can work from home or away from a central office. It’s got the potential to ruin productivity, creativity and employee health and wellbeing. A recent opinion piece in the Guardian was titled — “Coronavirus is giving us a glimpse of the future of work — and it’s a nightmare”.
Design Sprints optimised for remote work. Cal Newport’s book focuses on how to do work as an individual, our process gets up to ten individuals all doing Deep Work, at the same time to solve the same problem. Before remote work was the thing/norm.
On February 19th we ran an experiment — what if we guide several teams at the same time through Deep Work Sprints, with each time working on a similar problem? In the following I will describe how we did it, what the results look like and how we can scale Deep Work Sprints into infinity, thus creating a structure for solving very high-stake problems in a short amount of time with very little resources.

After comparing my remote work with other remote companies I came across few principles, or challenges, we all had in common.
Working in product design and need to test your digital products? Also want to give your clients the option to tune in without disturbing? Here’s the software, hardware and brainpower we use to run these bad boys every week.
If you think that building a prototype to test your idea is difficult, requires a lot of resources or a skilled team, you might be right. But building prototypes for nearly anything for the last two years I found a few ways to make the right compromises, even if you don’t have a high end production studio.
It’s not all about the content or the people, it’s mostly about you, your performance and your ability to keep everyone entertained.
For blockchain teams knowing if you’re building the right thing is hard
