A Remote work and community pioneer.
The sprawl Story.
Travis is an avid traveler with a passion for remote work and community building. He is the former Director of Community at Remote Year, a venture-backed travel startup redefining how remote workers live and travel.
During Travis' time at Remote Year, he worked to build and manage 60+ communities of remote workers, owned internal and external initiatives to build remote culture and planned and executed a series of offsite events. Most importantly, he met thousands of remote workers and learned what made for successful remote companies.
Travis decided to create Sprawl Consulting to help usher in the new generation of remote-friendly companies, full of long-term, happy, and productive employees.
Travis King has a background in youth work, a master’s degree in nonprofit management, a frisbee with him at all times, and a hardcore love of travel. For the four years leading up to the pandemic, Travis was the Director of Community for Remote Year, one of the world’s largest communities of digital nomads. While with Remote Year, Travis led a community of 2000+ remote workers through the creation of numerous traditions and points of connection, his management of slack, and various in-person and virtual events. Travis was largely responsible for the supportive, positive, and connected culture of both the RY Team and the community at large.
The best team I've ever worked with was a fully remote, global team that was built side by side with Travis."
