If he can set up an SSH server on his machine (outside the company
network), then he can set up a mirror repo on his machine, where you
can push changes from the office to him, and pull changes from him
back into the office. Of course, you will probably need to synchronize
this with him, especially if he's travelling and frequently offline or
changing IP addresses. Also you need to be able to make outbound SSH
connections through the company firewall, but AFAICS that is usually
His work repo is then a local clone of the mirror repo, and when he's
ready to publish some work to you, he pushes it to the mirror repo,
and asks you to pull from the mirror repo.
If the source code is not secret, you could even synchronize through
GitHub or some other repo hosting service, which would be even easier
to set up.
Hope this helps,
