According to FlexJobs’ 2022 Career Pulse Survey, 65 percent of respondents said they prefer a fully remote work arrangement.
More than half of workers are also unwilling to give it up, with 57 percent stating they’d look for a new job if they couldn’t continue working remotely.
Fortunately for workers, remote-first companies have long been a thriving part of the modern workplace and continue to create plenty of remote jobs.
To help connect job seekers to remote career opportunities, FlexJobs has identified 30 fully remote companies that hire for work-from-home jobs. The highlighted virtual companies have been fully remote from their founding or before the pandemic.
“While this list of companies spans various industries and career fields, it represents a small sampling of the remote companies and types of jobs available in the growing remote job marketplace,” said Sara Sutton, Founder and CEO of FlexJobs, itself a fully remote company since 2007. “Although the number of remote-friendly companies has increased following the pandemic, these companies signal that fully remote work options have been an integral part of the workforce for many years,” Sutton concluded.
The 30 companies below are fully committed to remote work.
Each of them:
- They were fully remote from their founding and/or prior to the pandemic

To help professionals broaden their remote job search even more and become stronger candidates, FlexJobs’ Career Coaching team offers the following advice:
Be a Researcher
Job seekers should switch their mentality to that of a creative researcher. To truly be an active part of the hiring process, it’s necessary to thoroughly research the company several times—before applying, before and during the interview, and when following up. Spend time assessing what the recruiter is looking for. Mine their social media posts, find employee reviews and pore through the deeper parts of their website.
Revamp Outdated Resumes
It’s imperative to customize resumes for every job applied to, never forgetting to showcase the skills and experience that are most relevant to the position. A resume, LinkedIn profile, and cover letter are not static, unchangeable assets. Instead, they’re living, breathing documents that can be a candidate’s best allies if used well.
Network Like Your Job Depends on It
Top job seekers know it’s not just about submitting online applications—they also reach out to their connections and let people know they’re looking for a job. They attend industry events, connect with people on LinkedIn, and generally try to put their names out there.
For those pursuing fully remote roles, the career coaches at FlexJobs also stress the importance of demonstrating remote work experience throughout the application process by:
- Including remote work in the “experience” section of your resume
- Mentioning remote work in the “skills” or “summary of qualifications” section
- Sharing you worked remotely during the interview
- Showing off critical remote job soft skills, such as superior communication, proactivity, and having a growth mindset
