Working from Home: The desks of FreeAgent Engineering

Posted by on May 18, 2020

A view from our office

FreeAgent has always been a remote friendly company. When the co-founders started building the company over a decade ago, they were in different parts of the UK. In ordinary times, roughly half of our Engineering team is remote and everyone else works from our lovely, though currently empty, office in Edinburgh.

Four years ago we posted a handful of pictures of people’s engineering desks, and as the company has grown substantially and everyone is currently working from home, we thought it was time for a wee update.
