In this list we will go over 3 remote friendly employers that could be for you.

Nowadays, most people are keen on working from home. Back in the day, it was a dream, a myth. Unless you were a babysitter, working from home from your computer was like winning a lottery, but now it’s reality. 

1. Facebook – Meta

When Facebook is functioning and Zuckerberg didn’t forget to turn the lights on in the morning, the company is regarded as a decent place to work. This is perhaps stated by people who make a decent wage and are afraid of losing their jobs. Moving forward –

Facebook itself employs over 60,000 people according to a Google search that I just looked up. You will need to be tech savvy to get a job with Facebook or Meta.

At times FB/Meta has had positions available such as –

  • Data Scientist, Product Analytics, Instagram Ecosystems
  • Technical Program Manager
  • Graphics Engineer – AR-VR

As you all know, FB or Meta is a social network founded by Mark Zuckerberg. Originally it seems he started the site by using his schools database to import girls’ pictures over to his site. There are a few different versions of the story. But he is a multi billionaire so whatever he was experimenting on worked to his advantage.

Furthermore. If you think you would be comfortable with fitting into the now controversial team of Facebook, they are hiring. To add, Facebook is notably one of the biggest companies in the world. If you are seeking job security, it could be a beneficial gig. 


2. IBM

IBM still does stuff? Apparently so. 

They are a technology and consulting company that was very popular when I was 12 years old. 28 years ago. I remember my older brother playing video games on that huge monitor you could now find at a museum or a dump. 

IBM employs over 300,000 people and had a reported revenues of over 70 billion in 2020. Their headquarters are in New York. If you are seeking a remote friendly job, IBM could be a good fit. At times they have had remote jobs posted as such –

  • Linux Administrator
  • Microservices and API Architecture

The company started up in 1911 when I’m pretty sure computers didn’t even exist. Charles Ranlett Flint was the businessman who founded it. IBM stands for “International Business Machines.” It doesn’t sound cool like “Apple,” but it worked for them.

I’m pretty sure if they did something with their bland logo, customers would appreciate that.

3. Starbucks

Interested in selling overpriced coffee and mochachinos? You’ve found the right spot. However, in this blog we’re discussing jobs that are remote-friendly and I don’t know how anyone could profit by making coffee from home.

Starbucks is the world’s largest coffee chain with over 30,000 stores in 83 different countries. When selling something that is highly addictive, Starbucks is definitely an adequate employer with regards to job security. 

Starbucks was founded back in the day in 1971. Which is quite surprising as they didn’t become globally known until after the millennium. If you visit their job board, they may have remote opportunities available.
