Hiring remote developers - Top 10 US companies with a remote workforce

This study by Gallup showed that the remote workforce, working for American companies, show far more engagement and better results than the people without the option to work remotely. Furthermore, those who are not bound to the brick-and-mortar office, are typically saving their company a significant portion of the employment costs. As a remote developer, this alone might be a smart way to sell yourself to the most lucrative firms in the US labor market. The top 10 companies hiring remote developers at the moment this article is being published are:

  1. American Express (36 remote jobs). Joining American Express means that “you’ll have access to world-class leadership and learning experiences, an opportunity to create a unique career journey shaped by your talent and curiosity, and the ability to engage with leaders and coworkers who will help you excel in all you do. All this, combined with comprehensive benefits and a culture of inclusion”.

  2. Apple (131 remote jobs). We at RemoteMore are absolute Apple fanboys and girls. Apart from our love for their products, when you become part of their team, what you’ll get is “People work together to make each other’s ideas stronger. That happens here because every one of us strives toward a common goal — creating the best customer experiences”.

  3. Salesforce (799 remote jobs). What’s the best about them is not only the big number of remote opportunities but also the diversity that they promote in their global team. What you’ll receive after getting on board is a “workforce that reflects the diverse communities we serve and where everyone feels empowered to bring their full, authentic selves to work”.

  4. Mozilla (24 remote jobs). Yup, they don’t have many, but all of the job opportunities are remote. Mozilla’s employees express that almost 90% of them are proud to work there and about 70%-ish are happy with the diversity and the professional development they get. With all of those people working remotely, you can see for yourself that the results from the Gallup study stay true. Working for Mozilla means that you are an idealist, who is “committed to an internet that includes all the peoples of the earth — where a person’s demographic characteristics do not determine their online access, opportunities, or quality of experience”.

  5. Dell (1500 remote jobs). Dell is one of the pioneers of computer technology who have recently diversified most of the recruiting to remote employees. Working for Dell will enable you to “find new ways to collaborate while focusing on driving business results, no matter where the work is done. The company offers a variety of programs, designed to embrace employees’ work-life balance”.

  6. Humana (150 remote jobs). To help people achieve the best for their health is a noble mission. At Humana, you can do it remotely. Amazing, isn’t it? When you become part of the team, you’ll get “inspired them to help others and will get well educated in order to deliver on your passion”.

  7. Red Hat (400 remote jobs). Since you are reading the current article, we’d assume that you’re either a developer or someone interested in the topic. So, explaining what Red Hat does, how and why will be pointless, because you probably already know these. Working at Red Hat means to “share ideas, create inclusive communities, and welcome diverse perspectives from all Red Hatters, no matter their role”.

  8. Nielsen (550 remote jobs). The company gathers insights about what people watch and listen to and then creates ratings about the said content. Due to their field of business, they are truly global and have many remote job opportunities. Being part of Nielsen means that you are “together with the brightest minds in data and engineering. What Nielsen builds today will change the way everyone watches, listens and plays their favorite tunes, TV shows, and movies for decades to come”.

  9. Adobe (140 remote jobs). Photoshop, Acrobat, InDesign, Flash Builder, Edge, Dreamweaver, and many more. Do you want to help people create stunning images? Or maybe send boring e-mails with .pdf files with cat pictures? Or even deal with web design? To work for Adobe, means “constant learning, brilliant people, and a community guided by core values that promote equality, creativity, and opportunity in everything the company does”.

  10. Cisco (2330 remote jobs). You simply cannot not know the company. It is so huge and it operates on such a big scale that having a ton of remote employees is only natural. Cisco was named #1 company to be a part of for a second consecutive year. They “don’t want you to blend in, they want you to stand out. Not in spite of what makes you unique, but because of it”.

The ten companies above are only a fraction of the huge American job market, currently on the lookout to hire remote developers and other remote workers. We gave you this list in order to inspire other companies to follow in the tracks of these corporate giants. If they have so many remote job openings, why don’t you at your company? Or if you are a developer, why are you still bound in the chair in your dusty office? Go live in someplace exciting while still coding and earning good money.
