Losing the trailer over a cliff

Meet Jason Byer, a marketing professional who decided to take his family on a road trip of the U.S. in a travel trailer, all while keeping up his regular full-time day job and working from the road! Jason leads up marketing and partnerships for crowdspring—a job he found using FlexJobsFlexJobs is partnering with Jason to take a closer look at what the digital nomad lifestyle is really like while working a full-time job.
