If you’re looking for a work at home job that will help further your career and give you a real salary with benefits, don’t despair.
When I first starting looking around for online job opportunities, it seemed like all I could find were call center type jobs or jobs doing surveys or other random things that didn’t require much skill and didn’t pay worth a darn.
That is not the case anymore. There are all types of quality, established companies hiring remote employees. It’s becoming more and more common to see remote jobs across all types of industries.
Below are a sampling of companies that hire remote employees and offer competitive pay and benefits. Many of them also offer free trips each year for company retreats. Bonus!

Automattic is the powerhouse behind WordPress.com and a host of other tools that help power WordPress. This billion dollar company made the move to an all-remote workforce awhile back and is still thriving.
Automattic has their interview process down to a science. If you get through initial interviews, you work on a contract basis for two to six weeks to make sure it’s a good fit, which is always a great idea.
If you join the company after the contract period, you do customer support for Wordpress.com for three weeks. What better way to get to learn about the company and the issues customers face?
Automattic also has annual retreats that send employees to everywhere from Las Vegas to Budapest, along with other fabulous benefits and perks. Not too shabby!
