60 Companies That Let You Work Anywhere
June 2016 marks my five year anniversary as a remote worker!

I’ve enjoyed all the perks, and now I’m on a quest to grow and continue working as a digital nomad, which doesn’t just mean working outside of the four walls of a cubicle, but traveling as I work!

Enter: The Remote Work Lists!

A month ago I was delighted to find the post 200 Startups Hiring Remotely in 2016 by Remotive.io and their list of startups hiring remotely.

But 15 minutes into the list I was bummed to discover that most of the companies weren’t hiring remotely at all. Instead most opportunities fit one of two criteria:

  1. In-house work at a company with multiple offices around the world
  2. Remote work as long as you stay within the borders of a certain country

I discovered 120+ Companies that Will Let You Work Remotely From Anywhere. Same story as the first list.

So, what is 100% Remote?

It means that whether you’re an administrative assistant, a developer or VP you can work wherever you want.

You aren’t “required” or “preferred” to work in an office, but you may be invited to an annual team meetup in Estonia or Costa Rica :).

In short, the company you are working for may have an office and some people may work in it, but you don’t have to!

50+ Companies with Distributed Teams that Allow You To Work ANYWHERE

With this criteria in mind, my list dwindled to ~50 companies. While 50 isn’t as sexy as 120 or 200, it’s honest, and here you’ll find a list of companies that truly will let you work remotely from anywhere, regardless of your position. There’s jobs for writers, programmers, administrative assistants and even accountants!
