Remote Year Values

Remote Year was started by asking a simple question, “Who wants to travel together for a year while working remotely?” Out of that inquiry grew an incredible community with a set of shared values and a mission for impacting the world.

We consider these values every day as we make decisions, plan new experiences and set goals for the future. They guide us toward achieving our common purpose which is reflected in our mission. We strive to incorporate these principles into our personal and professional lives, which often coexist as location independent workers.

We don’t just extol these values. We live them.


By fostering genuine human connections across diverse people and places, we’ll create a more peaceful and productive world.

Work-Life Flexibility

Championing location independent productivity

We don’t just advocate for it, we live it. Remote Year is a fully-distributed company, meaning each of our employees works remotely, either from their home or on the road. We give our team the opportunity to do great work - on their terms.‍


Coming together with a purpose

It’s not about what you can do on your own, it’s about what we can do as a whole. Our team lives by this ethos as members of the Remote Nation, creating meaningful connections and building lasting bonds within our community as we pursue a life of productivity and positive impact.


Expanding our capacity to care for others

We have a penchant for pushing ourselves out of our comfort zones. This lifestyle connects you with people that you may have never met otherwise, local residents in the cities that you travel to or fellow Remotes. We live for the moment that an internal light bulb clicks on, illuminating the way toward making decisions that take all perspectives into account.

Being Present

Embracing awareness and gratitude for the moment

Every day presents opportunities for reflection - only if you’re prepared to notice them. We strive to appreciate every moment of awe, inhale every bit of inspiration and take a break whenever life feels like it’s moving too quickly.

Global Perspective

Experiencing the world and appreciating its diversity and interconnectedness

No two people are the same - and that is what makes the world so inspiring. We believe in seeking out similarities and celebrating differences. No matter where we are, we seek to understand those around us and aim to build bridges where before there were walls.


Creating the optimistic future you envision

That future? It’s now. We’re leading the way in remote work and ushering in a new era of location-independence. Will you join us?
