According to a FlexJobs survey, wanting to travel is one of the top reasons why people say they work. In fact, they ranked travel above other important factors for working, such as paying off debt or saving for their children’s education. However, only 5 percent of remote jobs can be done from anywhere in the world. To help job seekers find remote jobs that allow for travel, FlexJobs has identified 20 companies that posted a large number of work-from-anywhere remote job listings during 2019.
“For a variety of reasons such as employment and tax law, the vast majority of remote jobs include a geographic requirement, but thanks to technology and the increasing global adoption of remote work across industries, the marketplace of work-from-anywhere jobs is very healthy going into 2020,” said Sara Sutton, Founder, and CEO of FlexJobs. “Military spouses, people living in areas with poor local job markets, travel lovers, digital nomads, and other professionals benefit enormously from this specific type of portable remote job that provides the ultimate combination of flexibility and freedom,” Sutton concluded.
Some of the most common work-from-anywhere job titles are data analyst, editor, product designer, recruiter, SEO strategist, tutor, and web developer.
The companies listed below had a high volume of job listings from January 1, 2019, to December 31, 2019, that met the following criteria. They are ordered from highest to lowest for volume of job listings.
– A “Work-from-Anywhere” remote job without location restrictions
