14 Remote-First Companies Hiring Right Now

A list of companies hiring on Elpha that offer fully remote work and are currently hiring remote!

Remote-first companies used to be the outliers.

But the last 3+ years have demonstrated that remote-first work can work and location-based offices and commutes aren’t required.

What do we mean by Remote-first? 

These are companies that make working remotely the primary option for all employees. It is different than allowing a few team members to work remotely while the rest are at an office (that’s hybrid).

What sets a Remote-first company apart is the infrastructure (documentation, process, policies) they have to put in place and the trust in their employees to work from wherever they are most comfortable and productive.

This doesn’t mean you can’t have an office! Many of the companies below do have office hubs in certain cities. But, when those employees gather in a hub or office, they’re still primarily communicating over Zoom and Slack because that’s where their true office is.
