After Elliot sold his company, he was determined to find a way not to shortchange his relationship with his family or his career — and to transform the way we work in the process.
The result is Acorn.work, a business committed to remote employment. We practice what we preach—we have a fully-remote team. Now Elliot works from a home office, and is able to have dinner with his kids, and put them to bed. He still works long hours, but has found a way to be there for his family, too.
Our goal is to open up opportunities for millions of people all across the country by matching them with jobs that allow them to advance their careers while having the flexibility of working remotely.
Together, we can change the future of how we work and live.

But after spending over six months searching for a New York-based Director of Product Management, our new Board Director suggested someone he knew in Salt Lake City. Given my strong feelings about everyone being located in the same office, I was instinctively opposed to the suggestion. But I agreed to speak with the person he had recommended.
The candidate, Luke, blew me away—he was a total rockstar. So I bit the bullet and hired him. It was a total game changer. Once I discovered how creative and productive distributed teams could be, I never looked back.
Remote is Better
