Free places to work in São Paulo

Great spaces to work and meet people

  #coworking, #remote working

It's been a bit more than a year since I've started working full time remotely at Scrapinghub. During this period I've mostly worked from home but I try to get out from time to time and meet up with some friends and getting work done at the same time.

São Paulo has numerous coffee shops where you can find free wifi and great coffee but they can be crowded, plugless and noisy. Luckily there are also some great places in the city which have all you need to get your work done and don't come at a cost.

It opened in 2018 and is a giant building, which not only has a great view that you can see from the top, but also a restaurant, library and numerous spaces to sit down and work.
