Finding a digital nomad job (work from anywhere) is easier than you might think. As the world turns more and more to the internet the traditional office space is being replaced by laptops and virtual meetings.
If you want to travel full-time, explore the country by RV, live abroad, or just live in a van down by the river, there’s an opportunity out there waiting for you.
WHAT ARE DIGITAL NOMAD JOBS?
Jobs that allow you to travel, move about, and work from anywhere in the world.
WHAT ARE THE BEST JOBS TO DO FROM HOME?
Remote jobs or digital nomad jobs are ideal for working at home. They give you the flexibility to create your own schedule so that you can build your life around family and not your job.
WHAT SKILL DO I NEED TO BE A DIGITAL NOMAD?
The sky is the limit. As long as those skills can be shared over a computer the potential is there. Auto mechanics have become digital nomads by sharing their expertise through videos.
THE BENEFITS OF A REMOTE JOB
- Your own schedule: A lot of remote jobs have a very flexible schedule as long as you get your hours in. Perhaps you’re not a morning person and would prefer to get your work done in the evenings.
- Your office is where you park it: You can literally work from anywhere. Maybe it’s on your back deck enjoying a sunny day or overseas on your favorite white sand beach.
- Save money: Just think of the money you’ll save. No commute, parking fees, or outrageous lunch expenses.
- Staying focused: Imagine having your workspace all to yourself. No more pencil tapping office neighbors or people stopping by distracting you from your work.
Are you excited? I hope so because this could be your first step to the freedom you deserve. But if you don’t find what you’re looking for I don’t want you to get discouraged because there are some other great options we will be looking at as well.
THE BEST SITES FOR FINDING DIGITAL NOMAD JOBS
The remote job niche is getting more and more popular but still many sites fail to allow you to sort for them. This can make finding the jobs frustrating and quite frankly just a waste of time.
Even some of the leading sites like LinkedIn don’t offer very many online jobs or make them really difficult to find.
FlexJobs offers a tremendous variety of digital nomad jobs. They have everything from seasonal, temporary, part-time, and full-time jobs that all allow you to work from anywhere.
While the site is free for those who wish to post jobs, for you and I there is a $14.95 monthly fee to use it. They are however frequently running specials and I was able to get in for under $10.
If you ask me that’s a small price to pay for the job opportunities they post.
2. HUBSTAFF TALENT
Hubstaff Talent gives you some additional options that other job sites don’t. In addition to full and part-time jobs, they offer freelance contract and fixed price job opportunities.
These are especially useful for those that are just looking for some side income or temporary work. Perhaps you just need some extra cash for that trip of a lifetime or to pay off some debt.

They have some great marketing and remote working tips to help you spice up your resume and online presence. And that of course is all in addition to the 10k plus jobs they have listed.
This completely free platform has been growing rapidly. What makes it unique is that AngelList focuses only on startups. If you want in on an early startup this is the place.
While not all jobs are specifically remote opportunities it’s easy to sort and find ones that are. They also offer investment opportunities for startups if that is of interest to you.
Remote.co is actually part of Flexjobs but offers some great additional features. If you go to Remote Companies you can learn details about the various companies to make sure you’re a good fit not just for the job but also what the company stands for.
