Work Abroad in 2017: These 100 Companies Offer the Most Remote Jobs

2017-08-24
by Jordan Bishop

Working abroad is the modern employee’s dream, but few actually make that dream a reality. Either they fail to agree upon a remote working arrangement in their current job, or they can’t find a remote job that suits their skill set. Whatever the case may be, there are a lot of people who wish they could work abroad yet are still stuck in an office.

Thankfully FlexJobs, a firm that filters through tens of thousands of remote jobs including telecommuting and freelance agreements—all of them perfectly suitable for employees working abroad—has compiled a list of the top 100 companies offering remote jobs in 2017. The list is comprised of the 100 companies offering the highest number of jobs on FlexJobs’ database, in which there are more than 47,000 companies in total.

FlexJobs is far from the only bullish player in the remote jobs space. Other firms like UpWork, the employment mecca for those seeking to work abroad while they travel, are investing heavily in remote work and the freelance economy. According to a study performed by the company in cooperation with the Freelancers Union, as many as 55 million people chose to freelance in 2016 alone, which equates to 35% of the total U.S. workforce. That's a convincing argument for the direction remote work is moving in 2017 and beyond. 

Anne Donovan, an innovation leader for PwC, explains that, “Remote work is not even a big deal anymore.” Instead, she says, the focus is on, “What you produce and the quality of work you bring, and whether you’re in the same room or dressed a certain way just doesn’t matter.” Though none of his Virgin companies cracked FlexJobs’ top 100 list, Richard Branson agrees. “In 30 years' time, people are going to look back and wonder why offices ever existed.”

As software continues to eat the world, and we gain ever-greater connectivity at ever-greater distances, it's not surprising that working remotely has gained so much popularity so quickly. Whether the exact form your online job takes is that of a digital nomad in Thailand or a travel blogger in South Africa, it really doesn’t matter. As long as you have the location independence that working abroad allows for, the world is truly your oyster.
