20 Flexible Companies Hiring For Fully Remote Jobs In 2024

Published

on

Vacation season is swinging around the corner.

But unfortunately, not everyone has the luxury of taking advantage of their PTO. Many workers simply cannot afford a summer vacation, or are unable to take the time out that they need to relax, even during their work days, due to rigid company policies imposing in-office attendance and restricting work/life balance.

However, all is not doom and gloom.

There are still some employers that exist who are hiring (or have hired recently) for fully remote jobs, which in itself, is a rare find during a time when many executive teams are opting for RTO and hybrid mandates for their workplaces.

Additionally, these companies have policies and provisions that, at the time of writing, encourage their employees to maximize their PTO. Employers are starting to recognize the positive impact that vacation time and having flexible working policies can have on employee wellness and boosting productivity.

20 Companies Hiring Fully Remote Jobs In 2024

In light of the findings of a recent Zety survey, which showed that 68% of professionals are cutting back on their vacation spending this year due to finances, these “summer-friendly” employers are even providing financial incentives to step away from the desk.

The remote work job board, FlexJobs, recently listed 20 remote-friendly employers that also provide extra pay, reimbursement, stipend, or some other tangible benefit in exchange for taking time off.

For example, some employers such as Expedia provide wellness and travel reimbursement to employees, while others such as Olark reward employees with a $1,000 vacation bonus, upon the condition of taking five consecutive days off work.

Here is the full list of 20 companies that are hiring now—with some role categories being fully remote:

  1. BambooHR
  2. Calendly
  3. Chime Financial
  4. Disruptive Advertising
  5. Evolve Security

How To Find A Fully Remote, Flexible Job In 2024

One interesting observation that can be made from the list above is that a large percentage of flexible companies—at least those derived from FlexJobs’ list, operate within the travel, leisure, and hospitality industry.

These offer company-specific perks such as discounts off their own resorts and hotels, and stipends towards related travel and stays, which you can take advantage of this year.

Therefore it might be a smart career move to consider working at an employer within the travel or hospitality industry, as this might be more beneficial to your wellbeing (from a PTO and travel perspective).

Another way to find a fully remote job that also offers flexible perks such as unlimited PTO, is to look at Glassdoor reviews and feedback, and talk to current employees on LinkedIn. Ask them what they enjoy about their role, and what they like/don’t like about working for their company. Even a simple coffee chat over LinkedIn can shed significant light on what to expect should you apply for a role with one of these employers.

One of the easiest places to see what is available to you as an employee is the company’s career page section of their website. They will usually use this page to shout about their achievements as an employer, and showcase the perks they provide, in a bid to entice quality talent such as yourself.

But perhaps most essentially, let’s not forget how essential it is is to set expectations early on to avoid confusion later. Create clarity and avoid ambiguity by discussing your flexibility requirements, such as vacation plans, health and personal needs, right from the beginning. Of course, timing is everything, so ensure that you only mention this towards the negotiation stage of your job application process.

For example, if you have three rounds of interviews, it might be best to not rock the boat and mention anything to do with personal benefits until the very final stage interview, once you feel satisfied that you have checked all their boxes (and vice versa).

This year, prioritize your wellbeing in your work, and not the other way around. When selecting your next employer, look out for positive signs that they value you as a person, not just as another number on a spreadsheet.
