Listen to the Interview
Hello and welcome to The Remote Podcast Episode 8. This podcast is all about location independence, digital nomadism, and living life on your own terms.
Each week we interview a new guest on the show, and this week I sat down with Matthew Daiter. He is the distributed systems lead engineer at nomoko, an artificial reality company based in Zurich, Switzerland. Matt dropped out of the University of Illinois – Urbana Champagne after his freshman year and became a remote worker. He’s been living in Europe for over a year, and I actually met him when I was visiting Amsterdam last April.
In this week’s episode, we discuss the nitty-gritty details of how to work in Europe as a remote worker. Matt outlines his experiences moving to Europe and how he handled the logistics of it, including visas and other regulations. We also talk about what it’s like living in a foreign country, some of the challenges Matt faced with integrating into a new culture, and the recommendations he has for people who are getting into this lifestyle.
I really love this episode because Matt is just a very real guy who says it as it is. This episode also covers a lot of information that you won’t find anywhere else, so let’s get started.
