You have to adhere to very strict and sometimes tight deadlines. While it's remote and you can set your own hours, you often work for more hours than described. Most communication is done through video calls or Slack messaging, and often times communication occurs over the weekends. Therefore, you are constantly expected to check messages. Not checking messages and/or not responding is unacceptable. You also have to be able to work with other teams. For instance, graphic designers work with web developers and videographers work with the editorial team, and so on.
