About Remote Year

Remote Year is a company that provides a platform for professionals who want to live and work in different cities around the world without having to compromise their professional pursuits. The company was founded in 2015 by Greg Caplan and Sam Pessin and since then over 2,000 professionals have participated on one of our work and travel programs.

What We Do

We currently run various types of work and travel programs across 5 continents. Participants join with their current jobs work remotely while living in different cities around the world for a month at a time with a community of other professionals from various industries and nationalities. The cost of the program covers having all of your bookings, experiences, workspace membership, and more arranged for you.

Common Misconceptions

Remote Year does not provide our participants with jobs for the program. Each participant is required to have their own professional plans worked out when joining a program in order for them to afford to stay on the program. However, if you don’t currently work remotely, we can help talk to your manager to transition your role.

Remote Year is not a visa agency. While Remote Year supports helping participants in a lot of their transition into working remotely and traveling, we cannot help participants obtain visas to any country on your itinerary. It is completely up to the participant to know what visas will be necessary for them to have for the duration of their program.
