Digital Nomad Success Stories

We hear frequently from FlexJobs members who have found success in finding a flexible job with our services. Check out what a few digital nomads had to say about their experience with FlexJobs:

“After searching for four years for a work-from-home job I could perform while traveling with my husband, FlexJobs helped me find a job where I can control my own steady schedule no matter where we are. I am so delighted to have found FlexJobs and have already recommended your service to several people.” —Marjorie B.

“‘Thank you’ just doesn’t seem like enough. I’m so grateful for the service. The day I lost my job with my previous employer, I signed up for FlexJobs. After losing my job, I had a great sense of urgency, and I also knew that I wanted a remote job so that I can travel for several months at a time. Within six weeks of losing my job, I was hired by a company that will allow me to work from anywhere in the world! When my apartment lease expires this summer, my world travels begin!” —Leticia S.

“I’m so happy with my experience with FlexJobs. I was able to find exactly what I wanted using this service. Within six weeks of joining, I had two job offers for remote positions. I’m able to be a digital nomad and live life with a flexible schedule. I’m very happy and would highly recommend FlexJobs!” —Aretha S.
