Aviasales is Remote-First Now
Aviasales, one of the world’s leading travel search sites, has become Remote-First. It means the company's employees are able to choose a work scheme that suits them most: from the office (in Phuket, Moscow, or St.Petersburg), from home, or basically from anywhere. Remote-First policy goes beyond any time limits, it will work even when all the COVID-19 restrictions end.
The Remote-First practice also applies to all open job positions. This also implies constant remote work, if it is convenient for a candidate.
“It doesn’t matter where you are if you are doing what your passion is about: at home, in one of our awesome offices or in a coworking space in Barcelona. We want every member of our team to be free to choose the way they want to work both comfortably and efficiently,“ says Polina Gavra, HR Director of Aviasales.
Remote-First policy is based on Aviasales’ best practices. Company's employees had had an opportunity to work remotely up to two months per year even before the lockdown started. About 7% of the company's headcount had been constantly working out of the offices. Even Aviasales CEO Max Kraynov had been running the company remotely for eight years from Australia.
