As one employee describes it, working from home means “the freedom to move and travel, [plus] work in your pajamas.” Sounds pretty irresistible. If you are looking for more flexibility and the ability to work wherever inspires you, a remote gig may be the answer.
“Remote work requires you to be a problem solver and a great communicator,” says Wade Foster, CEO and co-founder of Zapier, a 100-percent remote internet company. “In a remote environment, you have no one looking over your shoulder to help show you the next steps. That means you need to default to action and identify the opportunities where you can help your team and go find ways to solve those problems.”
If you have these soft skills or are ready to hone them, here are 11 companies with work-from-home job openings.
