It's not too good to be true.
Finding a job that provides flexible hours and time to pursue non-work related ventures can sometimes feel like an impossible feat. But, it might not be quite as hard as you think. Recently, many large corporations have started offering work-from-home positions, giving employees the chance to have a commute-free career.
Remote.co, a job site focused on telecommuting positions, rounded up 10 companies hiring work-from-home employees that offer unlimited paid time off. Some companies even have a required number of vacation days, which can help combat the issue of employees not taking advantage of these unlimited policies. At these companies, you can not only work from your own bedroom, but you can also take as many days off as you see fit—with no penalty.
1. Project, Business Manager at Apsis Labs
Employees at Apsis Labs must take a minimum of three weeks off per year. The company also offers “unlimited parental leave (with a one-month minimum), a paid annual social retreat that includes employees’ partners and families, and a coworking space reimbursement for remote workers of up to $300 per month.”
2. Digital Marketing Specialist at Articulate
Articulate gives employees unlimited time off in effort to encourage them “to develop autonomy, mastery, and purpose in their work.”
3. Financial Manager at Teaching.com
Sometimes it can be hard to get as much work done without being a typical office setting—one of the downfalls of working remotely. To combat this, Teaching.com provides remote workers with hardware assistance and a stipend to set up a remote office. Additionally, each year there is a conference where remote employees can gain professional development. Unlimited vacation days seal the deal.
