Deel Community Meet & Greet


👋 Hi Deel Community friends, 

My name is Cassy and I'm one of the Community Managers here at Deel. We're so thrilled that you're joining us in this dedicated space for members to ask questions, learn, and connect with other remote workers worldwide! 

To get us started, introduce yourself to the rest of the community by telling us a bit about yourself:

  • What's your name? 
  • What country/city do you work in?
  • What are some of your favorite hobbies when you're off the clock?

Feel free to add any other interesting details you'd like to share, like your favorite destination for a holiday, or a fun picture with a pet if you have one!

We can't wait to learn more from everyone, and we’re looking forward to building an incredible community with you.

Olá everyone! Love the idea.

Here are my 2 cents:

I'm Enio, Fulfillment Expert at OnFrontiers - a global marketplace for experts in pretty much anything. I work remotely from Belo Horizonte, Brazil, for almost 6 years now -  or 3 years b.p (before the pandemic).

Outside working hours I love being outdoors, including playing sports, hiking, or walking with my dog.

Fun fact: Marvin (the dog) and I also share a fear of thunder and storms in general 😮 


Um abraço,



I think I'm advocating for B.P. to be a new measurement of time 😂 
Great to meet you Enio @Enio_Borges, and thanks for being a part of our Community. If you haven't already, be sure to join the Brazil Regional Group to meet other remote workers in your area!
Thanks for joining us here 👋
p.s. we're definitely going to need more pics of Marvin 💕


Hey 👋

I'm David and I am a Spanish guy based in Amsterdam right now. I work as a software quality engineer and I enjoy travelling, scuba diving, meeting with friends 🍻 and spending time with my baby boy.

Wishing to increase my network and reach out to others as my closest workmate lives 2000km away 😄 

Welcome welcome @davidz87 ✌️ We're excited to meet you here on the Deel Community, and look forward to learning more about you and your remote work adventures in Amsterdam! Cool to see another diving enthusiast! @Nussbaum77 shared in the thread below that he's done some diving in cenotes!

Hi everyone,

My name is Okiemute, but by I often go by Kheme. I'm a 🇳🇬 Nigeran-based backed (Laravel) software engineer and am currently an engineering manager at Autoche Africa. Outside work, you can often find me at home listening to music, blogging, or gaming. At other times out hanging out with friends.

It is great to be a part of this community, and I look forward to connecting with amazing people here 🙂

So great to meet you, @kheme! Welcome to the Deel Community 👋 Also, thanks for sharing two great playlists; the "work music" one has some choice tunes 👌

Hey Kheme, great to connect with you here! I'm from Delta! 😀

What city do you work from? There's also a Nigerian group for you to join if you haven't already Nigeria Group - Deel Community hopefully we can have a meet-up soon. 



I am glad to be here. I recently contracted as a prop trader, and love helping anyone interested in learning, and most importantly, how to lose properly and professionally, by managing risk. 

Personally, now that I work from home, I am learning how to cook, and I am loving it! I also enjoy creating music on the Keyboard. You can catch me at the gym, to relieve some of that stress from trading, but AlgoBoxPro tools, give me the edge, and peace of mind I need. I look forward to working with, and meeting community members. There is no reason why we all cannot succeed, especially when we share information and financial support, when able. I hope you have a great day, and remember this is the Real Deel!!

Freedom Time

Welcome to the Deel Community @PY_AlgoBoxPro. Thanks for taking the time to introduce yourself and your professional background. Love to hear that working remotely/from home has allowed you the opportunity to cook more! Any new dishes/cuisines you're particularly fond of cooking these days? 


Hey everyone👋

I'm Dmytro, a college dropout and startup founder from 🇺🇦Ukraine. Currently in 🇺🇸SF - hmu if you're here and up for a chat!

I'm a long-time volunteer, big slow fashion fan, and I study team rituals. Not sure what else to share - so I figured I'd share a picture of my breakfast because boy isn't it gorgeous! 




Nice to meet you @dk !

Nice to see that the recent California rains ain't damping your mood. 😄 Forgive my ignorance but what is slow fashion?

Hi @dk, nice to see Ukrainian here, I'm from Ukraine as well and would be glad to connect and stay in touch:

Drop me a message if you have a minute. I'd be happy to hear about your startup and chat for a bit.

I'm Vinicius, Software Engineer heavily focused on PHP 🐘.
I'm from Petrópolis - RJ, Brazil, born and raised. 


I am a former dance instructor. I used to dance Brazilian dances like Samba, Forró, etc. I also took some pole dancing classes. Nowadays, I train boxing to keep active.

Welcome, welcome Vinicius @cviniciussdias, great to have you a part of our Deel Community!

Is there any group as well where we can interact with the community as well.

just to socialize.

Hi @baig052

This is an excellent question, thank you so much for asking it. At this time, we only have Regional groups for people to connect on a local level. However, since our Community platform is still a budding space, we're always open to exploring new ways to bring connection and networking to our global members! If there are specific interest groups you'd like to see here, please feel free to private message me your ideas.

Hi! I'm Marina from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I live here and work from home most of the time. Commuting in Buenos Aires can be quite a nightmare, so working from home has significantly improved my day-to-day life. Occasionally, I visit my sister in Tandil, a smaller and beautiful city located 350 kilometers from Buenos Aires. It's quite comforting because the city is surrounded by hills, so the views are breathtaking.

Here are some pictures:

Happy to be here and looking forward to connecting!


Hi @Maru

Thanks so much for sharing some beautifuk photos of Buenos Aires and Tandil! Both look like absolutely stunning places to be, and it's great that you're able to work from the hustle and bustle of a city, or in a place that seems more serene and nature-oriented.

If you haven't already checked it out, we have a Regional Hub page for Argentina where you can connect with other members in your area, and we''re also hosting a meetup in Buenos Aires at the end of the month. Hope we're able to see you there, and thanks for joining us as a Deel Community Member!

Hi All, I am glad to be here, Thanks for welcoming me ! I am a Caribbean guy. I live in Martinique. I am a tutor, a tour guide and a writer, and I wish to share with you what's cooking on my side : I am taking on exploring the Deep South of my island, revisiting the places that are depicted in my novel "An Endless Quest for Love". There will be tours and lunch by the seaside, tropical drinks and creole cuisine, swimming in the Caribbean sea and in tropical forest rivers .. in one word there will be lots of fun .. And my novel is included as a bonanza .. It's in November (you've got time to prepare😉) and the adventure is entitled 

Martinique in the Caribbean 🏝️: An Endless Quest for Love, Immersive Trip in the Deep South

Would you join me ?In Le Robert Bay.jpg

Hi @Jacques_PhAnton

What a stunning photo of Martinique by boat! It seems like a beautiful and dreamy island (as far as I can tell from the jaw-dropping Google photos!). 

Welcome to the Deel Community, and thanks for sharing more abut your exciting new novel – how can one go wrong with swimming in the Caribbean sea, seaside luncheons, and tropical drinks on the agenda!?

We're excited to learn more about you and how Deel has impacted you as a tutor (feel free to share your story if you're interested!), but I'm especially curious about the interesting things you've seen as a tour guide! I know you already shared a photo of a rhum distillery in Martinique, but if you have a photo of your own favorite adventure spot, feel free to share it on this post!

Cheers and welcome again to the Deel Community!

Hi Everyone and @CassyL ,

My name is Cenk Tukel and I am the founder and CEO of Tukel, Inc. Accounting where we support U.S. SMB's, startups and entrepreneurs with our bookkeeping, accounting, payroll, tax and advisory services. Many of Deel users are our clients 🙂 and we use Deel for our own team - 100%.

We are so happy to be part of Deel and this great community.

Though I am based in Istanbul (great city to live and enjoy), all our business is with U.S. companies, mostly founded by non-U.S. founders.

I love sailing and skiing... Our cats (we have adapted 2 street cats) are lovely but not enjoying the boat that much, no wonder cats dont like water 🙂 Something I haver to sort out when we go longer trips.

I love to add as much value to the community as I can and everyone, please feel free to write any questions you may have and tag me.

Wish you all the best of growth.


Hi @CenkTukel

Welcome to the Deel Community, and thanks for being a valued Deel partner. It's great to see our partners chime in on our Community discussions to provide their own experiences and additional insight. Thanks so much for sharing more about you and your interests, including your sailing adventures with two adopted kitties! That seems like it would make for wholesome social media content 🐈 Have you had the chance to sail to a new place this year? If so, we'd love to hear more about it in this Community post. It's been really neat to see where folks have explored so far, and to learn about their favorite spots across the country. 

Thanks again for being a part of our Deel Community,

Hi everyone!

Mi name is María Romero. I'm venezuelan 🇻🇪 currently working in Perú from a US company as Accounting and Executive Assistant. This is my thrid month working with Deel and i think that is a great platform and community.

When i'm not working, i like to go out and exercise running or doing indor cycling.

I also enjoy going out to eat, since here in Peru the food is delicious.


Hi @MariaDlou

Thanks for being a Deel user over the last three months, and for joining our digital Community platform! Awesome to hear that you're based out in Peru – there must be such beautiful and stunning sights to see, what with being so close to the Amazon rainforest and against the coast. We can't wait to learn more about you and your interests, and to hear your tips for working remotely. 

If you're interested in exercise/fitness, you might want to check out some of our Community social events, like our Virtual Yoga Extravaganza

Thanks again, 

Of course!

Here I show you some photos so you can also see everything.

I'll check the Virtual Yoga Extravaganza, thank you!!💕



Hello friends, my name is Ken. I found this community via LinkedIn.

Native San Franciscan here. I went to school all over San Francisco so I know this city like the back of my hand.

My parents were from Hong Kong and Guangdong, China. I was born in the USA! I can speak conversational Cantonese and Mandarin moderately.

I have lived in San Francisco, Rancho Cordova, El Dorado Hills, and Sacramento. I worked remotely in San Francisco and Merced as a Wealth Management Operations Specialist at a major American bank. I went on a medical leave and am now looking for my next career adventure here on Deel.

My favorite hobbies are driving my Fiat Abarth on open roads and listening to EDM. I love positive energy and emotions because life is tough, guys! We need to relax sometimes.

On the High5 Exam, I am a deliverer and storyteller and on the MarcusBuckingham exam, I am a teacher and connector of people.

I made good on my promises and could tell unforgettable stories in Ukraine and my time stuck in the airport in Istanbul, Turkey.

My favorite destinations for travel are still Ukraine and Russia. I would love to visit Malta and South Korea.

My belief is: You can find GREATNESS AND GOODNESS in most people if you try to draw it out of them.
