Operating across very different time zones can work well if you use the time zone difference to your advantage. Let’s say you base on the East Coast of the United States, we have a development team in Russia which means Developer’s time zone being 11 hours ahead of EST. By the time your staff in the US arrive at work, everything is complete and they’re able to start their day. This approach works if the tasks required of each team are self-contained and allow each group to work in isolation, with little need for collaboration across time zones. Any questions the developers had for you could be raised at the start of your day, allowing you (hopefully) to have the answers ready by the time the developers arrived back at work. Also our managers are flexible to work outside our usual working hours in the evening, and still be available when the client needs them.
