We TRY to be async-first (but still use Zoom like everyone else)!! Slack (for quick messaging, link sharing), Voodle (for more context / human connection with short video), Gsuite (shared docs), Miro (ideation in real time and async).

of course Tandem (live on PH now! https://www.producthunt.com/post...)
But my favorite might be Figma and Figjam. My co-founder uses it for design, but I also use it for product wireframing, brainstorming, and collaborating on UI. We've also used Figjam and Figma for team-bonding activities like games, a photobook, sharing, etc! The multiplayer aspect is so powerful!
