Shogun isn’t just a remote company; we’re globally distributed.

While we don’t operate under the same roof, we never miss an opportunity to connect with one another. Slack is our reliable go-to when we want to talk to people across teams (and continents).

Our director of operations, Rachael, launched a new Slack channel — x-quarantine-solidarity — as a space for team members to share positive coping strategies. The channel quickly evolved into a place to share recipes and pictures of the tasty dishes we created, some of which are local to people’s native or adopted regions.

Here’s a snapshot of what we’re making, baking, eating or just drooling over around the world.
