Top 25 Companies With The Most Work-From-Anywhere Jobs
FlexJobs has just announced the top 25 companies that offer the most work-from-anywhere job opportunities.
Automattic, RockContent, and Study.com are among the companies with a healthy volume of location-independent remote jobs, which are gaining more and more popularity.
After nearly a year and a half of quarantine, many people are craving a change of scenery and eager to travel as vaccination rates increase and travel restrictions ease. However, for various reasons, such as employment and tax law, about 95% of remote jobs have geographic requirements. To help job seekers find jobs that do not require they be located in a specific city, state, or country, FlexJobs has identified the top 25 companies hiring for the most remote jobs since January 1, 2021.
“Work-from-anywhere jobs are highly coveted positions, and even despite the challenges faced during the pandemic, digital nomadism is actually on the rise. In fact, the population of digital nomads in the U.S. has increased nearly 50% since 2019,” said Sara Sutton, Founder and CEO of FlexJobs. “Portable jobs offering this kind of extreme location-independence enables workers to combine meaningful careers with travel, and it’s also a powerful attraction and retention tool for companies who want to access the best possible talent from around the world.”
The companies listed below, from highest to lowest number of current remote job listings, had a high volume of work-from-anywhere job listings between January 1, 2021, and May 31, 2021.
