The following is a list of remote companies. The list includes only companies that have been noted by sources as being former or current fully remote companies.

Background[edit]

Fully remote companies are companies that do not have a physical office where employees work and may have a mailbox as their headquarter.[1] Their workers have the option of either telecommuting or working from somewhere else.[1] Many fully remote companies employ workers in numerous time zones.[1]

Benefits of being fully remote are: no longer having to pay rent, the ability to expand quickly, and no longer being constrained by location when hiring employees.[2][3] A downside is that being physically together could help employees better communicate and come up with ideas.[4] Another downside is that employees may feel secluded from their coworkers whom they do not see in person.[4] This could cause them not to have compassion for each other.[4] To build a sense of community, fully remote companies have held frequent meetups and retreats that last a week.[4] Companies participating in the fully remote experience include those in the technology, e-commerce, and e-learning sectors.[2] There are about 100 fully remote companies that employ 10 or more people.[3] GitLab, a fully remote company that employees 1,100 people based in over 60 countries, is one of the largest all-remote companies.[5]
