Remote suggestions

March 17, 2020

Here are a few suggestions to keep yourself busy and entertained.

Just like most tech companies, at advertio we’re working remotely for the next few weeks, which means that we’re spending way more time at home than we use to.

During the day we work as usual: we manage our tasks, we keep in touch with each other and we even have lunch together once a week like we always do when we’re at the office; but once work is done for the day, we all could use some help to keep ourselves entertained and distracted.

To help out, we’ve asked our team to share some titles they recommend so that, hopefully, we all find something we haven’t watched, read, listened or played yet. If you too have discovered something new and want to share some suggestions with us, please do!
