Remote announces exponential growth as it reaches its third anniversary

This week Remote celebrates three years of helping companies embrace global talent, scale up, and spur growth and innovation with a more flexible workforce. 

“We founded Remote in 2019 because we believe everyone deserves access to meaningful work, good salaries and great opportunities to help them build better lives for themselves and their loved ones, regardless of where they were born or live,” said Job van der Voort, co-founder and CEO of Remote. 

“Back in 2019, we didn’t know a global pandemic would greatly accelerate the move to a distributed workforce. But we knew that the move away from static offices was coming, so we created the necessary tools and expertise to guide businesses through these foundational changes. Now, the time has come and we’re working hand in hand with companies around the world as they transition to the future of work.”

Today, Remote is proud to announce landmark growth, with a 900% employee increase and more than ten-fold growth in annual recurring revenue in the past year as the world looked for guidance in the move toward the new work from home economy.

Remote is now working hand in hand with companies around the world as they make the remote transition, and our exponential growth is a reflection of the revolution that has taken place. Just 11 months ago, in January 2021, Remote had 70 employees. Today we have grown to 700 employees across more than 60 countries, servicing clients all over the globe. 

As the global economy reforms to fully embrace remote and flexible work options for good, we will continue to cement our role as the leading remote work solutions partner. Challenges facing companies adapting to the future of work are clear: from onboarding and management software, to security and IP protections, to compliance and regulatory concerns, to creating culture and belonging amongst employees. 

Remote is solely focused on improving the remote work experience for clients and their workers. We bring deep expertise, data, and partnership. And while other companies with experience in general HR software or consulting have tried to pivot to address the needs of a newly distributed workforce during the pandemic, we have spent the past three years building expertise and solutions uniquely tailored to the future of work. 

Our work is underpinned by a firm belief that businesses can benefit from employing the best person in the world rather than the best person within the city they operate. Employees, meanwhile, are able to realize their full potential without the need to relocate. 

In other words: Remote working can help distribute wealth and level up the globe. The anniversary growth milestones we’re announcing today are big steps toward the realization of that vision. And we can’t wait to find out what the next three years will hold.
