Remote Year’s mission is to be the most trusted platform for remote working and learning globally
A future of work movement is born
Our story started in August 2014 when two friends asked a simple question, “Who wants to travel together for a year while working remotely?” They launched a basic website to gauge the interest and immediately received 25,000 applications. They immediately knew that they had stumbled onto a big need and Remote Year was officially born.
Who we are
Remote Year is the pioneer and market leader in community-based travel experiences, bringing remote workers and remote learners to the most inspiring destinations on the planet to live, work, learn, and grow together. Remote Year has launched over 60 programs and helped thousands of professionals explore living a more fulfilling life in 37 cities, 30 countries, and 5 continents.
What we do
We provide an end-to-end platform for individuals and businesses to live, work and travel together in the most inspiring locations on the planet. You bring your job or ambition and we take care of all the logistics. While there are now options to experience a slice of the Remote Year magic in 1 week, 1 month, or 4 months, Remote Year’s most beloved and most transformational experience still remains the 12-month global adventure.
In addition to our work & travel programs, we offer retreats, customized experiences for businesses and organizations, learn & travel programs for individuals or teams who want to grow their skills and professional development through impactful group learning while traveling the world.
What makes us unique
There is no other trusted platform offering experiences for remote workers and remote learners globally that offers the depth of experience, global footprint, community and experience curation, flexible options, incredible staff, and lifelong benefits that we do.
Our guiding values
We don’t just talk about values. We build them into everything that we do. They are the lens we use to find the right people, create the right products, and how we hold ourselves accountable for what we deliver to the thousands of people who trust Remote Year for their life-changing experiences.
Count on RY to deliver the promise. From the facilitation and curation of amazing experiences, to the hyper local programming at every destination.
A community that helps people and businesses facilitate authentic and meaningful connections within, with people, and culture around the world.
We push the boundaries of what is possible. We believe that to live life to the fullest means to be curious and be able to explore the most amazing places and cultures around the world.
To grow means to constantly challenge yourself and your environment, learning from everything and everyone around you.
