The BIG List of Remote-First Companies: 67 Organizations Who Are All-in On Remote Work

If you’re looking for remote work, you really need to try to work for a company is fully remote. These are the companies who cultures have grown up around remote work and have integrated it into the way things are done. Remote work didn’t just happen by circumstance to their company. They built their company around it.

Working remotely for a hybrid (part remote, part in-person) company is loads more difficult than just working at a company that is either 100% in-person or 100% remote. Why? It’s the easiest way to get left out of spontaneous in-person conversations.  Out-of-sight, out-of-mind is a real issue.

We’ve spent many hours scouring the corners of the interwebz for companies who take remote-first seriously. We also scoured the web for people who take very seriously (but may still have an HQ or office somewhere). That list is here if you’re curious.

All of these 67 companies are 100% distributed — meaning they’ve burned the bridge to HQ. It’s remote or bust.

How did we determine their 100% remoteness? We simply scoured through their websites and job postings.

We included any company that prided themselves on being 100% distributed or 100% remote and was obviously so (no mentions of an HQ or physical address people actually worked at). Companies who had remote positions requiring a certain physical region, country or timezone still made the cut.

If we couldn’t quite tell if they were 100% remote or not, they were not included.
