Established remote companies

A curated list of established remote/distributed/virtual tech companies. The criteria for inclusion are intentionally vague, but the general idea is to include only established tech companies for which a significant portion of the workforce works remotely. Established means that each company is either well-funded or profitable, and tech means that they have more than a handful of software development roles.

Updates to inclusion criteria:

  • 2019-02: To make things a bit less vague and avoid ending up with a huge list, I stopped adding companies that have fewer than 50 employees. I will also remove small companies from the list at some stage.
  • 2020-04: To make this list more useful to a global audience, companies that don't hire engineers across multiple timezone regions are no longer included. The timezone regions are roughly: Americas, Europe-Africa, and Asia-Pacific.

Pull requests are welcome. Please keep the list in alphabetical order.

Note: I started this list as a way of finding companies I may want to work with. These days, I work as a remote data scientist with Automattic. You can visit my website to read about my application path and my thoughts on the experience so far. You can also check out this video of a talk I gave on a day in the life of a remote data scientist. TL;DR: Remote work is awesome! :)

Notes:

  • Web covers the usual front-end skills, Mobile usually means iOS and Android, and DevOps is listed for companies where this is one of the main focus areas.
  • Globally-competitive compensation means that the company doesn't use remote workers as a source of cheap labour. For compensation to be globally competitive, the company should offer packages that are comparable to market rates in major tech hubs.

Remote job search websites

Note: There seem to be hundreds of remote job aggregators, and new ones keep emerging. This is just a sample. If you want to add an aggregator, it should have more traffic than most of the above sites.
