Next: Benefits & Perks

From home

Most people at Basecamp work from home most of the time. You can spend up to $1,000 every three years outfitting your home office. Getting the basics right will make a big difference: a good chair and a good desk.

From coffee shops

Working from home all the time isn’t everyone’s cup of coffee. Thus, in the pre-COVID-19 and likely post-COVID-19 vaccine era, lots of us choose to work from coffee shops or other third spaces either some of the time or a lot of the time. Great for a buzz of other people and much-needed caffeine of course, but please do mind our basic security rules and procedures to ensure that nothing leaks on to the cafe wifi.

From a coworking space

If working from home or from a coffee shop doesn’t suit you, then trying a coworking space might just do the trick. Basecamp offers a $200/month stipend towards a desk in such a place.

We don’t just make Basecamp, we run our entire business on it too. It puts all our project communication, task management, and documentation in one place where everyone can work together seamlessly.
