Companies we admire that work remotely
Balsamiq is a software company who help people create software and websites that are easier to use by using their rapid wireframe tool. They were founded in 2008 by Peldi and are still going strong in 2017.

They have a remote team who are based across the globe. Francesca who is a part of the marketing team at Balsamiq wrote a fantastic blog post about the pros and cons of working remotely.

Francesca’s pros included things like being able to keep your job but move anywhere in the world, no morning commute on the bus or the train and being able to wear super comfy clothes.

She also mentioned some of the less positive things of working remotely such as your teamwork being effective and how distracted you can sometimes get while you’re working from home.

Balsamiq Review - Balsamiq: meh! I'd rather use Sketch. by G2 Crowd User in Design December 12, 2017
What do you like best?
I think Balsamiq is a good tool if you're just beginning to learn about wireframing.

What do you dislike?
I don't like the thick borders and the comic sansy font. While I appreciate the notion that they want to communicate an unfinished state, I think the font and the thick borders make the whole thing look super unprofessional.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
I used to use it for wireframing, but have stopped using it a long time ago.

Balsamiq Review - Useful tool for design wireframes by G2 Crowd User in Information Technology and Services December 06, 2017
What do you like best?
The interface is user friendly, it is very intuitive and easy to use. The library of elements is very useful and varied. Is very useful the option of linking pages and have a "prototype" experience.

What do you dislike?
I think they should include a rule in the workspace and also an element to generate columns easily. it will be great if we can use other fonts. I also would like to have some templates and ideas for design good wireframes.

Recommendations to others considering the product
Is very easy to use. Many elements are already in the library however you can upload your own elements to complete your mockups. You can event link pages to have a 'prototype' experience.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Before making the final design, we make the wireframes in Balsamiq so that the client can see the layout, which allows us to make adjustments and optimize time.

7 Free Tools Every Web Designer Should Know About
Wireframing: Balsamiq
As any designer knows, wireframing is an essential step in UI/UX development for websites and apps. Yet despite its importance to the design process, it’s still typically done by hand on whiteboards or scrap paper. Balsamiq is a free tool that replicates the wireframing process digitally, helping designers to prepare prototypes much more quickly than would otherwise be possible. Balsamiq also facilitates collaboration and communication, making it easy to share and discuss wireframing mockups for websites, apps, and software.

Tutorial :Guidance needed in Writing Specifications [closed] - ToonTricks
Tools like Balsamiq Mockups (and see examples here) are wonderful for quick mocks, though the default "comic sans" look may not ride well with managers. I'd rather have a dirty mockup than none at all though. (Note: the free version of Balsamiq doesn't let you save images, but you can achieve the same with the export/import functionality. Also you can't save to an image file like PNG etc, but you can use a screen-capture program to take a picture of what you draw.)

Brian Simmons of ScaleFactor: Mastering Your Product Management Craft
I really enjoy using Balsamiq to wireframe. It is a great way to communicate ideas quickly to the design and development team. “This is what I am thinking,” and you can get a lot of feedback from the visual. I love the simplicity of the product — I can create wireframes quickly. You don’t have to be an expert like you would if you were using Sketch or Photoshop.
