In Careers, the "Work remotely" option is great, however some companies use it to mean work remotely part time (like a few days a month).

Obviously part-time remote work vs full-time remote work are very different as a "part-time" remote employee would still be required to be in the same locale as the company, whereas a full-time remote employee could be anyway and would not necessarily have to relocate or travel.

I would like to suggest some more specific options for this field, possibly to capture how much remote work is permitted, or to clarify what a company is specifically looking for in an employee.

  • Do such jobs actually exist? Or is this limited to contracting?

    @Stijn Stack Exchange, Github, Automattic (WordPress), Basecamp, and Stripe are a few companies off the top of my head that offer such positions.

Our policy is if an employer checks remote work, it must be for a 100% work from home position. If you find one that isn't, please flag it and we'll edit the listing and inform the client.

  • All right, thanks, will do.
