Being a digital nomad means that you work remotely from anywhere in the world. How you work depends on the industry. There are internet marketers, teachers, writers, web developers, and much more that can be done from anywhere.
How do you find companies that hire remote workers?
There are the apparent job boards like Upwork, Fiverr, Guru, Freelancer.com, Indeed, etc. that have existed for many years.
The downside is that these marketplaces are overwhelmed with workers, and it can be hard to find a job that pays well enough to live.
The list below focuses on job boards and markets that have remote jobs available... although not all the posts are location independent. We are not personally recommending all of them, but they are worth checking out if they are a good fit.
