This month’s remote job roundup is support and content heavy, as normal – with a few big name companies included. You might not even realize that places like Snapchat or TED hire remote workers, but they do – and they’re hiring now! Update that resume and dedicate some time this weekend working on your job search!

Operations Manager at The Engine Room: Here’s a secret: I’ve always wanted to work in operations. In high school, I would think and think: “what kind of job organizes things? How can I spend my life getting people where they need to go?”Tour managers, for sure. Event planners? When I moved to Virginia and worked at the arena, I learned about the operations department. Their entire jobs are dedicated to strategizing and planning. If this is something you enjoy, this job with The Engine Room might be for you!

Customer Support & Happiness at Later: I just read a book about women in technology that talked a lot about working at a startup. I’ve never had the interest, but this customer support opening at Later isn’t strictly service. You’ll be doing technical writing, triaging bugs, and working with the engineering team to work on a new product.

Operations Support Specialist at Karat: Karat is a company working to ease the hiring process in engineering. They’re looking for some evening and weekend support on their operations team – you’ll be developing communication protocols, assisting on interviews, and working to ensure quality. Operations Support Specialists also provide customer support, addressing any questions applicants have. This is a great opportunity for anyone with some HR experience who is looking to go remote! 

Copy Editor at Snapchat: Yep, you can work remotely even for companies like Snapchat. This part-time contract position for a copy editor sounds really fun, and requires evening and weekend availability to cover the current entertainment news. You’ll be creating copy and editing graphics and filters for their Our Stories feature, and collaborating with the Content team to provide marketing assets that are pitch-perfect and on brand.

Marketing Manager at Code HS: If you’re passionate about technology and education, you’re probably familiar with Code HS. It’s an organization that makes it easier for schools to teach coding, with full curriculum and support. They’re looking for a marketing manager to spread the word through traditional routes, and favor those with a technical bent due to the nature of the product. If you have a blog, that includes you!

Customer Support Specialist at FormAssembly: Customer support jobs typically have the lowest barriers to entry for someone who is just starting a career with a remote position. Nearly everyone has some kind of customer service position on their resume, whether it’s in retail, serving, or a summer job at a golf course. FormAssembly gets great reviews from employees, and could be a fun and friendly place to start your new remote lifestyle.

User Experience Designer at TED: This job requires a bit more prior technical experience than I typically share here, but it’s such a cool one I couldn’t resist. TED Talks is looking for a new designer for user flows, UI mockups, running usability tests, and more. If you have a web and graphic design background, this would be an awesome chance to work at a really fun and influential non-profit!

    Amazon is another company that often hires work from home employees for customer service jobs. I’m lucky that my job allows me to work from home when needed, so I feel like I have a bit of that best of both worlds going on since I can go to office and have social time, but also stay home and work when I’m not feeling well.
