Do Remote Companies Provide Their Employees With Equipments? by ReactJs(m): 11:59am On Oct 23, 2021
I’ve got maxed out M1 MacBook Pro coming in hopefully sometime next week. They asked if i needed monitors and all those stuffs, but as a backend dev, one screen don do me.

So what happens after my contract with the company expires and i decide not to renew, do i ‘send’ the laptop back to them or it’s mine to keep?

I used to think only full time employees get equipments from their companies and not independent contractors as they would like to call us. So as a remote dev, has your company ever shipped equipments down to you?

Well my own company wanted to ship but I told them to send me the money to buy me the things instead. Not ready for customs wahala but its really common sha nowadays. If you leave the job, you don't need to send them back as those things are chicken change to oyinbo.

Makes sense. Thanks boss. How much would it cost to ‘clear’ it though? Have you got any idea ?

I have 6 VOIP phones in the mail for work. As long as it's not a freelance role and it's in the "West", they'd most likely provide tools for the job. Better to get them to send money and buy local though. I couldn't get the brands for the phones been sent na why I leave dem to send. But this one wey I dey see say person dey mention Customs, my heart don break

I too was surprised when they (employers) provided work tools for Independent Contractors. I guess they understand the Vale of providing the tools. Got to love the way the West treat their employees (or contractors as we are called) compared to local employees.

I pray we can get to a point where all local IT folks work foreign remote and local IT companies get to improve their Total Comp arising from the shortfall of locally available talent

Lol Bro. Those 2 things you mentioned are quite important but it's missing hard work. Add that to the equation and you're good to go!

Hi Bro. No I'm not a react native developer. I'm a backend NodeJs developer. react native is really similar to the normal react code you write on the web. You learn react once, you can write it anywhere. web or mobile. the code is the same.

Not a full time react developer but its like the first thing i learned before i switched to backend fully. If you want to learn react, you need to read their docs religiously and look for articles and videos and that explains more about the concepts discussed in the official docs. This is structural learning and it works for me. Move to project based tutorials and try to do your own thing from there. All the best bro!

In your situation, they may not request it Horace, if it is an image computer, they would need you to send back the computer.
