Even as some companies return to the office this spring, a growing number of organizations are offering remote opportunities — or opting to forgo the office altogether and let all of their employees work from home permanently.
To help remote job seekers find the best opportunities, MakeMyMove.com, an online directory of cities that will pay remote workers to move there, has identified the 23 best places to work entirely remotely.
MakeMyMove.com consulted ratings from Glassdoor, Blind, LinkedIn and other platforms to compile the list, taking into account the geographic diversity of each company’s employees as well as its remote working policies. The companies on this list are all 100% remote with no corporate campuses.
“I absolutely think we’re going to see more workers moving from in-person and hybrid jobs to remote jobs in the coming months,” Evan Hock, co-founder and president of MakeMyMove.com, told CNBC Make It. . “Many people have been exposed to new freedom and flexibility with remote work during the pandemic, and they are not ready to give it up.”
The most attractive benefit that attracts job seekers to remote work over in-person or hybrid work is the freedom to live where they want, instead of needing to be within commuting distance of their employer, says Hock. “There are also the opportunities to save money that come with it, and more free time to spend with friends and family,” he adds.
