What is Remote Year?

Remote Year curates work and travel programs for professionals to work remotely as part of a community from different cities around the world without having to quit their jobs. Join a program with your current employment situation and follow an itinerary around the world with a group of like-minded participants from a variety of different backgrounds.

World travel without the hassle.

We handle all the planning and logistics so you can focus on the experience. The monthly fee covers accommodations, transportation including flights, workspace access, and more in every stop on your itinerary.

A unique take on work-life balance.

Our local city teams are there to plan various activities and events throughout the week so that participants can easily enjoy the experience without interfering with their job. It's common to fit in a hike before the work day or take a cooking class during lunch.

Community bonds like no other.

Traveling with other members of your community for the duration of your itinerary will allow you to create unique relationships from professional connections to life-long friendships that will last long after the program is over.

"I remember looking at it and thinking 'I could do this for much cheaper on my own.' However, once I actually signed up and started living the RY life I realized that there was no way I could have done even half of what I do on RY on my own. The sheer logistics that they sort out for you is unbelievable. You land in a new city every month and within 3 hours you're fully functional."
