What is Remote Work?

Some remote workers take full advantage of the opportunities that a remote working lifestyle gives them.


Remote work is a working style that allows professionals to work outside of a traditional office environment. It is based on the concept that work does not need to be done in a specific place to be executed successfully.

Think of it this way: instead of commuting to an office each day to work from a designated desk, remote employees can execute their projects and surpass their goals wherever they please.

People have the flexibility to design their days so that their professional and personal lives can be experienced to their fullest potential and coexist peacefully.

There has been a cultural paradigm shift in what society deems to be an appropriate workplace - and remote work has capitalized off of that newfound freedom.

There are a variety of ways in which people can work remotely. That’s the beauty of remote work - people can choose to work in a way that makes the most sense for their lives.

There are a couple ways to work remotely:
  1. You work for yourself as an entrepreneur, freelancer, or contract employee
  2. You work for a company that embraces some form of remote work

You may prefer to take the leap into remote work by joining a company in a full-time role. There are lots of great places to work remotely — especially in the tech and startup world — that embrace remote work and have a wide variety of job openings that may suit your skills.
