About Remote Work Junkie

Remote work has witnessed 159% growth over the last 12 years, with no signs of that slowing down. So what does this mean? Remote work is no longer just the future of work, it’s already here.

Now not every career path or job has the option to work remotely. Nor does everyone like working from home or even think it’s for them. And that’s okay!

But if you are visiting this site and reading this page, remote work is probably interesting to you or maybe it is the direction you’d like your career (or company) to go. And we are here to help you in that journey.

Our Story πŸ“–

Remote Work Junkie was founded in 2022 to help educate professionals and employers about the power of remote work. There are plenty of remote job boards out there, but not as many focused on the content and community side.

The website is completely bootstrapped by our founder, while he also works full-time in marketing. With virtually zero dollars being put into the site, Remote Work Junkie has quickly garnered brand affinity and thousands of followers and monthly readers.

We are proud to be independently owned and operated by passionate people who want to help others in their remote work careers.
