Kitsap’s Coworking Spaces

It has been said that remote work is the way of the future. Many people are ditching their long commutes or moving out of large cities because they’re now able to work from almost anywhere. But your dream home may be tucked away where Wi-Fi isn’t the best for video-conferencing. Or, you may need a workspace if you have little ones at home or occasional in-person meetings. Kitsap is lucky to be home to a number of great coworking spaces that fit a variety of needs. They are also great places to form new communities if you’re new to the area or missing small talk with colleagues. Many coworking spaces also offer discounted (or free) trial days.

Private office spaces, community work desks, meeting rooms, mail service, and even rentable studio spaces are just a short drive from almost any location in Kitsap County. LinkedIn recently posted an article citing a survey in which 64% of employees from some of the largest companies said they would prefer to work remotely over receiving a $30K raise. That’s quite the endorsement for remote work! Check out these great spaces to enhance your remote work life.
