BOULDER, COLO. (PRWEB) JANUARY 29, 2019
According to FlexJobs’ annual survey, wanting to travel ranks as one of the top reasons why people work. For those looking to combine their love of travel while simultaneously growing their career, work-from-anywhere remote jobs are especially coveted because of the extreme freedom and flexibility they offer. To help job seekers find this specific type of remote job (only 5% of remote jobs can be done from anywhere in the world), FlexJobs has identified the top 25 companies that posted the most work-from-anywhere in the world remote job listings during 2018.
“Although most remote jobs have specific location requirements, employers recognize that they can gain a competitive advantage by offering jobs without geographic limitations, especially during a time when there are more jobs open than people searching for them,” said Sara Sutton, Founder, and CEO of FlexJobs. “With remote-friendly technology and high-speed internet now widely available, it’s easier than ever for remote employees to stay connected no matter where they are located,” Sutton concluded.
While there are a variety of reasons companies have geographic requirements that call for remote workers to be based in a specific city, state, region, or country, work-from-anywhere positions are available to anyone who wants or needs a portable career. Popular work-from-anywhere job titles include Project Manager, Content Writer, Front-End Developer, German Speaker, User Experience Designer, Human Resources Generalist, and Online English Teacher.
The companies listed below had the highest volume of job listings from January 1, 2018, to December 31, 2018 ,that met the following criteria:
- A “Work-from-Anywhere” remote job without location restrictions
- Fully remote jobs that don’t require any time in the office
- Offer either full-time or part-time schedules
These 25 companies represent industries such as Computer & IT, Education & Training, Media, HR & Staffing, Editing, and Marketing. They are ordered from highest to lowest for volume of work-from-anywhere job listings during 2018.
