Hello Product hunt, At Carrom, we are building a payroll software for remote teams. 🌏🌍🌎 📝Our story Keerthi and I are software engineers working in remote teams and have seen many companies face this problem. We will help remote teams hire and onboard legally compliant, full-time employees, and pay their salaries. 🤔Why? Remote work has changed our lives. Our vision is to make employment in remote teams easy. We believe that Carrom is the first step towards it. Remote work could be the norm, and not an option - at least in a large percentage of tech companies. Slack, Zoom and a lot of other wonderful tools have made collaboration easy. Our goal is to make people-ops for remote teams easier. 💻The journey We have encountered a lot of failures on our way to building this solution (which is still far from perfect) - have been working on this problem for more than a year. We are currently in beta. We were also fortunate to connect with a lot of smart people on the way and learn a lot more about how different remote teams are working. 🚀We are deciding to launch very early because we could use a lot of feedback from the Product Hunt community. If you are working in or running a remote team, we would love to talk to you. If you have any feedback or questions, always write to us at support@carrom.io or DM us via twitter.

@carrom @fajarsiddiq Thanks a lot! I really hope remote works become the norm. The ethical thought behind it is bringing equal opportunity to talents spread across the world. It's cliche - but more like world without borders. 🙈

We got asked a few times about the name Carrom. (Kah-Rum) : It is a board game : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ca... When starting all the carrom men(the round thingies) are in the center. Much like a co-located team. As the game progress, they are scattered all across the board, with one common goal of reaching the pockets. Just like a remote team. Hence the name Carrom.

@nikita_gorskih Not bank directly! We support Transferwise integration - if you have a Transferwise business account, you can use it to make payments.

Awesome ❤️. But how do you make sure that the hires are legally compliant?

@joekuriank We have some local partners in different countries(accountants, HR firms etc) to act as employer of record. Local employment is done through this and we make sure everything is according to local employment laws. Taxes, benefits and everything else. Currently have this in around 23 countries.

@joekuriank @iamsooraj This looks great, I'm sure you have an extremely interested audience here on PH. 23 countries seems a very good number compared to what I've seen available through other products. How many countries were you realistically aiming to have at this stage? If I may ask, what has been the most difficult part of building Carrom so far?

@joekuriank @jamie_hanratty very good and tough question to answer. The number of countries increased mostly because of people(pilot customers) trying to hire from that country, and us trying to find a local partner in the specific country. There were no specific goals, but we don't want to expand further at least for a short while. Hardest things? A lot. Mainly there are lot of operational work involved and we are just two people sitting in a room. Dealing with people is a lot harder than building software (at least for us as developers) Add to that the complications of weird employment laws in different countries. Lot of things are still a mystery to us tbh. We are figuring many things as we go. I hope that answers the question at a superficial level. If you have more questions I'm happy to answer :)

@pierre_camille_hamana Thank you so much PC! You were among the very first people we talked to regarding this problem :) Have come a long way since then. Thanks for the continued support. We are still far from nailing it, but we have something presentable - a working solution.
