Hey there! I am a PMM at an Israeli startup, based 100% remote in the U.S. The entire 20+ marketing team is based in Israel (9 hrs ahead)& so is the product team. On one hand it’s nice bc I have a lot of independence and freedom in my role, but on the other hand I have such limited ability to collaborate, feel very disconnected, and feel my work suffers bc of it…

My question is: do you think it is possible to be a successful PM 9 hours behind your marketing and product colleagues?

I feel like you need to find at least a few common hours to work together live. Maybe not every day but regularly.

We definitely have an hour or two overlap for collaboration each week. Unfortunately it’s usually spent catching me up on everything/all the strategic decisions that have been made while I was sleeping…and I never really get a chance to contribute meaningfully.

I am in a similar boat. My cross functional team members are all based in Israel while I’m in the US. I don’t have great advice other than try to lean into async as much as you can. I do think long term it could be tough to imagine lots of upward mobility since I can imagine you just won’t be able to get the face time, build relationships etc.

I’m in a similar situation and yes, collaboration is possible. I start early in the morning to have 4-5 hours of “overlap” time with my Romanian/UK colleagues. I try to schedule meetings with my American colleagues later in the afternoon so as not to conflict.
