Telework is not only one of the major themes of interest around the COVID-19 pandemic, but the trend indicates that this will be one of the legacies that this period will leave for the future. An example of this is how large companies have announced that they will maintain some jobs by operating remotely, even when all security and social distancing measures cease.

In this context, Office Free was created, a job exchange dedicated to presenting job offers that are developed exclusively under a remote modality, including contests held by some well-known companies in the digital plane.

During these last months the practice of teleworking has been consolidated, coming to stay. Its implementation, motivated and in many cases forced by the context that triggered the pandemic during this year, led to the resolution to keep some jobs under this modality. Facebook, Twitter and Shopify are some examples of this new way of conceiving work activity.

Currently, there are several companies around the globe that have opened jobs for people from anywhere in the world. However, finding ads that specifically meet this criterion can be difficult.

Office Free was created with the purpose of bringing interested people closer to these job offers, providing valuable information for those who feel motivated to apply. For example, you can find information about how your salary would be affected by your country of origin, the shifts or goals under which you work in that position, the benefits you can access (in terms of welfare, vacation, insurance, holidays and others), the profile of the employee they are looking for in that company and in general, how is their system of distance working.

The file of each company advertised, along with presenting the main characteristics of its work system, also contains some reference links to learn from a more direct source how the experience is working there.

The platform is relatively new, as it is currently at version 0.1. However, it is already fully operational, bringing together job offers from Automattic (the company behind and Tumblr), Buffer, Ghost, Basecamp and several others.

Office Free also has an open form, where any company that meets the platform’s profile can offer their job offers to practice remotely, thus also opening an opportunity for employers around the world looking for talent to add to their ranks, regardless of their region of origin.

In what so far is his only blog post published just a couple of days ago, Adam, creator of Office Free, said he is already working to add new sections and features, including details of the best tools for teleworking, within the next few months.

For those who want to keep an eye on the latest job offers published in Office Free, the platform offers the option to subscribe to its newsletter via email, to receive in your inbox the main news published there.

One of the advantages of teleworking is that it gives you more freedom to organize the time you spend on your work, making it compatible with other aspects of your life. The lack of organization could have repercussions not only on your work life, but also on your family life and even on your personal leisure time.
