FlexJobs Names 20 Companies To Watch for Work-From-Anywhere Jobs in 2020
GitLab, Modern Tribe, and Study.com among companies with strong “work-from-anywhere” recruiting activity
Boulder, CO, January 27, 2020—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
• Fully remote jobs that don’t require any time in the office
• Offer either full-time or part-time schedules

Earlier this year, FlexJobs also identified 13 of the most common remote job titles that typically do not include a location requirement, such as Curriculum Designer, Marketing Manager, Recruiter, and Web Designer.
Another strong resource for remote job seekers is FlexJobs’ just released 7th annual list of the Top 100 Companies to Watch for Remote Jobs in 2020. These 100 companies had the highest number of remote job openings throughout 2019. A “remote job” is defined as a professional-level job that allows the worker to work from home either entirely or part of the time and may include a location requirement.
On Thursday, January 30, FlexJobs will host a Remote Work Virtual Job Fair where job seekers will have the opportunity to meet many employers on this year’s Top 100 list, such as Appen, Hilton, and Working Solutions, to learn about their current remote job openings.
