FlexJobs: These 25 companies lead the pack in remote hiring
Online employment site FlexJobs culled through remote job listings for 51,000+ companies to determin which companies had the highest volume of hiring around “Work-from-Anywhere” remote jobs with no location restrictions in 2018.
That last part about “no location restrictions” is an important distinction that often goes unmentioned in the larger discussion about work-from-home jobs.
Turn out it’s a little-known fact that the lion’s share of remote positions will only hire you if you maintain a steady location, often a state out of which the company bases its operations.
“About 95% of remote jobs require candidates to be based in a certain location like a state or country even, though they’ll be able to work from their homes,” FlexJobs notes.
Yet there’s a different breed of remote work that won’t tie you down as much to one place.
“Up to 10% of those location-specific positions can be done from anywhere in the U.S.,” FlexJobs adds, “while the remaining 5% of remote jobs can be performed from anywhere in the world.”
If you want to try the true “digital nomad” lifestyle, check out the hiring opportunities at one of these 25 companies!

Work-from-home job scams: What you need to know
In case you’re not familiar with FlexJobs, it’s different from most job search websites that you’ve probably used in the past because it charges a membership fee starting at $14.95 for a month.
FlexJobs charges a fee because it hand-screens every job in order to weed out all the junk, ads, and scams. You only get truly legitimate remote, part-time, freelance and flexible jobs listings with this service.
If you do use other search engines to find remote work, FlexJobs says avoiding two common phrases will reduce the number of scams you see in the results:
Keywords to avoid
Keywords to use instead
- Remote job
- Distributed team
