How to take a vacation if you are a SaaS founder

How to take a vacation if you are a SaaS founder

At Jitbit only two people have access to the entire company infrastructure - me (Max) and Alex. If something goes terribly wrong and the team can’t handle it, one of us has to get online and fix it. And we learned how to handle it pretty well over the years. Like everyone else, we do have occasional downtimes, but we never had a major outage in 10 years. The longest one we had lasted two hours and that one was planned maintenance taking longer than expected.

Legal Stuff They Don't Tell You About Remote Work

My company - Jitbit - is an all remote company. We are 100% distributed, we don't have an office and our teammates literally work from around the globe (currently it's the UK, the US, Latvia, Israel and Turkey).

So it might seem strange for me to warn people against remote work. But let's have a look from the employee's angle.

This is what you need to know when you're about to work for someone remotely and internationally.

Product Update: Multiple built-in email addresses

Product Update: Multiple built-in email addresses

This product update is for the hosted customers only, not the on-premise ones.

As you probably already know, we provide a built-in email address for every client. For example, if your helpdesk name is "company.jitbit.com" you also get the "support@company.jitbit.com" email address out of the box. Any email sent to this address instantly creates a ticket or adds a reply to an existing ticket.
