Remote Year is a program for professionals
and entrepreneurs to travel the world while working remotely.
Remote Year brings together communities of 50-80 talented and adventurous professionals to travel together for a year while living, working, and exploring a different international city each month.
How it Works
Apply and Interview
Request an application invitation here and we'll send it to you by email. Once completed, our Admissions Committee will review your application and if accepted, invite you for a video interview to help us make a final decision.
Get Your Employer Onboard
If you're not in a remote position already, we can help. About half of all jobs are remote compatible, and our Employer Approval Process has helped 73% of applicants make remote arrangements with their employer- from startups to Fortune 500 companies.
Start Your Remote Year!
Congratulations, you're accepted! We have new groups starting out monthly, and our Admissions Consultants will help figure out which ones work for both your schedule and your work arrangement.
Tracks and Events
Follow your passions all over the world with interest-specific personal development "tracks", in addition to local events that bring Remotes into their adopted communities.

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