Growing a business demands multiple HR tools and platforms. The best performers manage to neatly arrange their stack with strong connections tying the whole system together.

With hundreds of our own employees in dozens of countries around the world, Remote has tested all the different possibilities of how to make global employment more accessible: for ourselves, for our customers, and for our partners.

In pursuit of that goal, we are building the world’s only vertically integrated international employment infrastructure to make it easy, affordable, and safe for more companies to employ global teams. When you think about things like security, stability, and deep knowledge of international labor practices, Remote is at the top.

That’s why we are so excited to share that we are deep in the process of building the Remote API.

Our API will enable HR, payroll and hiring companies to take advantage of Remote’s vertically integrated global employment capabilities and international infrastructure within their own platforms. With this new product, developers will be able to embed and customize global payroll into their own solutions, opening the full HR tech stack to their customers looking to scale global teams.

In short: Remote’s API will make global employment simple, streamlined, and accessible. We’re taking the international infrastructure that has allowed us to offer a superior experience for businesses and teams around the world and making it available to developers.

Fuelling the growth of HR and payroll companies

Hiring an international team is no longer a luxury: it’s table stakes to compete for the best candidates.

Our research has found that most companies believe it’s getting harder to attract and retain top talent, but companies hiring internationally have a much easier time finding and keeping their best people.

As international employment becomes the norm, HR and payroll providers need an easier way to manage the demands that come with global employment. Anyone can hire internationally now. More than ever, platforms must offer the adaptability their growing customers need.

Remote is the only global HR business to own 100% of its legal entities in countries across the globe. Because of that, we are uniquely positioned to offer the most comprehensive endpoints for these HR and payroll platforms.

And what’s even better? This is just the beginning. Soon, more of Remote’s services will become available via externally facing APIs as we continue to expand our products, services, and consulting solutions.

Unlocking the potential of international workforces for all

To launch the Remote API, we want to start with partners who can help more people access the benefits of global employment. As remote work has expanded, many of our partners have seen increasing demand for international payroll solutions to help their customers compete in a global labor market. With Remote’s API, their customers can compliantly onboard international employees, consolidate domestic and international payroll, and accelerate their global expansion without ever leaving our partner's platform.

Remote API

Right now, there is no single solution that allows small- and medium-sized companies to consolidate domestic and international payroll into a single hub. This integration of Remote’s API will allow our partners' customers to:

  • Hire and onboard candidates from anywhere in the world, quickly and easily

  • Manage payroll for international employees directly through your platform

  • Simplify data management with a single source of truth for employee changes

  • Maintain a single set of reports and analytics, constantly updated through a two-way data exchange

  • Stay compliant with global operations, thanks to Remote’s fully owned local legal entities around the world

  • Rest easy regarding intellectual property ownership abroad, thanks to the power of Remote IP Guard

We are always looking for partners who are working hard to create the solutions HR leaders need. If you’re one of them, let us know! We would love to work with you to develop a custom integration.

Building a better world for workers and employers

We created Remote to make it easy for companies of all sizes to manage payroll, benefits, taxes, and compliance for their international teams. Partnering with other HR and payroll solutions will help unlock access to global employment for thousands of new businesses. Our entire team is thrilled to begin building the Remote API and its associated endpoints in the coming months ready to launch in March 2022. This is the sort of big challenge with big potential impacts that fuels our minds and our mission.

Remote is on a mission to help every person, business, and country realize their fullest potential. We are excited for this opportunity to work with new partners and developers to make that vision a reality.
