Australia, China and India among countries with international companies hiring telecommuters

"These international companies showcase the wide range of remote job opportunities available around the world that now exist for job seekers," said Sara Sutton Fell, Founder and CEO of FlexJobs

February 22, 2017— To help job seekers tap into the global job market, FlexJobs has identified the top ten international companies to watch for remote jobs in 2017. These companies are internationally-headquartered in countries such as Australia, China, Germany, India, Ireland, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom, and are included on FlexJobs’ Top 100 Companies to Watch for Remote Jobs in 2017 list. This list was based on an analysis of over 47,000 companies and their telecommuting job posting histories in the FlexJobs database during 2016.

A forecast of employment trends by the World Economic Forum called flexible work, including virtual teams, "one of the biggest drivers of transformation" in the workplace. Advances in technology have made many jobs compatible with remote work, and knowledge workers are increasingly comfortable working from a variety of locations. Over the past decade, a rising number of young professionals in particular have leveraged technology to work remotely and live a nomadic lifestyle.

“These international companies showcase the wide range of remote job opportunities available around the world that now exist for job seekers,” said Sara Sutton Fell, Founder and CEO of FlexJobs.” With 100 percent telecommuting the most desirable form of flexible work, and the digital nomad population growing in popularity, smart companies are seizing the changing workplace landscape by making strategic hiring decisions that leverages this interest in remote work. Millennials and other groups that value mobility and work flexibility will continue driving this trend, and forward-thinking companies that integrate remote jobs into their workforce will gain access to talent from around the world.”
