I’ve always been the type of person that needs to be traveling and meeting new people and when I was younger I was able to do that because we moved around a lot. Now that I’m in a job that I really like and am really good at, the thought having to stay in one place for a long time and not have to freedom to travel causes me a lot of anxiety that just makes we want to quit altogether.
Basically I want to ask my boss if it would be possible for me to be fully remote and work from a different country/city (currently in Madrid) with the assurance that I would probably always come back to the office once or twice a month since this is where my family lives.
The reason I think this would be a potential solutions is because the majority of the office is working from home full time nowadays (technically I can to but I go into the office every once in a while), we also have a lot of employees that live in Latin America or other parts of Europe and they make it work (I do work more closely with my boss than others, though). On the other hand though, I am relatively new (under one year) and it would be a big leap of faith for them to trust that I could be traveling around and getting everything done. The startup is also growing quite rapidly and they might prefer someone to be close physically.
Tl:dr; I need advice on how to leverage my (very un advantageous) position to get my boss to let me work from abroad and present it as a win-win for everyone (I get to be happy and they get better work from me because of said happiness).
