Remote-First Companies

The line between remote-friendly—those allowing software developers to work from home— and remote-first companies is blurry. Unless they explicitly categorize themselves as remote-first, it’s virtually impossible to distinguish remote-first companies from remote-friendly without knowing their inner workings. 

To avoid doubt, I consider remote-first companies to be those having the internal processes that facilitate remote work. Merely allowing developers to work from home doesn’t make a company remote-first. 

In any case, here’s the list of companies I’ve identified as remote-first based on their blog posts or by what they claim on their websites.  

If you know of any remote-first companies that aren’t on this list yet, or you believe a company was listed here by mistake, please email me at mike@remotemasters.dev.
