How To Choose The Best Coworking Spaces In Seattle
America’s gig economy and the rise of remote jobs and telecommuting have turned the idea of the professional work environment upside down.
We all remember the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears; a little girl breaks and enters a home, vandalizes it, eats all the hapless family’s food and as the unkindest (and more than a little disturbing) cut of all, sleeps in each and every one of their beds.
Rise Of The Remote Worker
Antisocial tendencies aside, a running theme throughout the story is perfection. Goldilocks sought perfection –not settling for her first option. The gig economy is very much the same – the perfect job, the perfect tasks, the perfect hours, everything needs to be just right. Including…where the work is done.
A lot of remote jobs can be done from just about anywhere that has access to high-speed internet. Starbucks and other coffee houses are very nice once in a while.
Libraries, bars, restaurants, malls and other places with public access will suffice, but these places tend to be very busy, and it makes concentrating on what might be focus intensive work a challenge. Also, the WIFI in each one of these locations tends to be sketchy, and are never anywhere near secure.
Goldilocks And The Perfect Workspace
Which leads us to the concept of coworking spaces. Coworking spaces have become the hot, new thing as people abandon traditional brick and mortar office settings for portable areas where they set up a laptop, tap into a properly secured data line and off they go.
In Washington, where technology and innovation have created a fleet of remote and telecommuting workers, an entire industry has sprung up to provide independent wage earners a place to ply their trades.
The Coming Of The Shared Workspace
These places have been named coworking spaces or shared workspaces, and finding the perfect one is kind of like Goldilocks’ quest for the “just right” bowl of porridge (minus the breaking and entering/vandalism part). These coworking spaces feature endless options from the mundane to the extravagant.
So, for today’s enterprising telecommuter, how does one choose between them to find the best coworking space in Seattle?
The truth is, there is no single answer. The goalposts rest pretty much wherever the remote worker needs or wants them to.
Different workers have different needs:
- are they designers or developers?
- Do they need uninterrupted quiet, or can they share space in a common area with other telecommuters?
- Do they need monitors?
- A landline?
- A mailing address?
- How good is the coffee?
