Fuel your startup growth with remote hires

Remote enables startup founders to employ the best global talent, manage payments and benefits with ease, and ensure international labor law compliance.


Your hiring plan shouldn't be limited by borders.

Want to hire that amazing engineer in Romania, or your first sales person in the UK... but finding it difficult to navigate international tax and labor laws?

To employ someone in another country, you must have a legal entity. However, setting up a legal entity can take months and cost over $100,000 per entity, not to mention the ongoing operational burden and costs. The other option is an employer of record (EOR) which handles international payroll, benefits, taxes, and compliance for businesses.

Using an EOR makes it easy for any business to hire international employees without placing additional pressure on already-stretched HR teams.

Our global employment platform helps hyper-growth startups scale up fast, reduce operational burden and get the most out their hiring budgets
