Remote was founded in 2019 by Job van der Voort and Marcelo Lebre to simplify how companies employ global talent. Our entire team works remotely in countries around the world. We don’t have any offices because we believe that people do their best work when they are free to work where they choose.

Before founding Remote, Job worked as a neuroscientist and was the VP of Product at GitLab, the largest fully remote company in the world. He is the dad of one dog and two humans. Marcelo was VP of Engineering at Unbabel and acted as CTO at several startups before founding Remote with Job. Passionate engineer, proud dad and sci-fi nerd.

We help companies of all sizes hire top talent all over the world, in full compliance with local laws. Our mission is to simplify how companies employ the best talent globally and help remote organizations do their best work.

Remote makes it easy to onboard, pay, and delight your remote employees and contractors, anywhere in the world. Remote fully owns local legal entities in all our covered countries. Removing the intermediaries allows us to provide superior service to companies and a first-class experience for employees at a low flat rate.
