Don't Have a Remote Job?  We Can Help.

No problem.  Remote Year is not a job provider- all participants will need their own remote jobs once the program begins.  However, you do not need to have a remote job to apply.

Remote Year provides guidance and resources to help get your employer on board with a remote work arrangement.  We've seen success with Fortune 500 and startup companies and with traditional and non-traditional remote roles. We'll help you get creative with transitioning into a remote position.
