Many people working in tech are tired of:
Having to spend money on public transport.
Having less time for themselves and their loved ones.
And many other factors causing people to prefer remote working over hybrid or in-office working.
Many websites list remote tech jobs.
However, be careful because often job descriptions are misleading or poorly written.
"Remote" can carry different meanings depending on the company that is hiring.
It can mean:
You can work anywhere within the country. For example, if a company hires for a remote role in the UK, you must be based anywhere within the country to be eligible to apply.
You can work anywhere within a specific geographical region. For example, some companies may hire for a role within the EMEA region (Europe, Middle East and Africa). It means you must be based anywhere in that geographical location.
Either way, a remote job is a role which allows you to work 100% from home.
It's your choice whether you want to go to the office
A company advertising a role as "remote" but requesting employees to be in the office even once a week is not a remote role. In this case, it's hybrid.
