ANON> Is Boulder CO (USA) a niche market for tech editors? Can they write their own
ANON> ticket in terms of pay, dress code, and number of days per week they may
ANON> telecommute? We're (the main office) trying to hire (for Boulder, the
ANON> "satellite") and candidates seem particularly adamant about telecommuting ~40%.
ANON> The position really isn't suited for the latter perk, as it requires juggling
ANON> multiple documents in varying stages of completion and almost daily in-person
ANON> meetings with one or more onsite SME.
ANON> Also, how do you compensate main office editors if the satellite person
ANON> telecommutes and they don't? All suggestions welcomed!
