Looking for how to find remote working jobs while travelling as a digital nomad?

Read this guide for some tips but first read this > to learn how to become a digital nomad in modern times.

If you are new to remote work and digital nomadism read: What is a Digital Nomad and How to Live Like One?

I have been digital nomad for the last 7 years and have done remote work from various places. And if you know how to get jobs to build an online business you are all set up to work and travel the world.


You want a job. That’s how you’ll be able to pay for your flight tickets, your hotel, phone, Wi-Fi, and food bills. And of course, your clothes, your gadgets, and your entertainment won’t pay for themselves either.

Well, looking for a job isn’t something new. You just send in your resumes, network with people, show up for interviews, and if everything goes well, leave with a job offer.

But yours is a different case.

You need a job that lets you work from anywhere. Your home, your hotel room, or even the Himalayan caves, if they have Wi-Fi there.

And you want that while you are on the road, travelling as a digital nomad.

Also, less than 3% of all remote jobs are legitimate. (Watch out for red flags like having to pay to get the job!) As more and more people are looking for simple steps to be a digital nomad, you must do your research to find the best guidance.

As a proud part of the digital nomad community, I have pieced together this quick and simple guide for you. Take notes.

  1. Check local job boards – If you are in San Diego, for example, search the Internet for your required job title job San Diego. Chances are you’ll find a company based out of San Diego offering remote jobs. And because you are in town, you can show up for an interview and get the job before you fly out to your next destination.
  2. Keep checking remote job boards – Tons of websites have hundreds and even thousands of remote job listings. Bookmark the popular ones and the ones that have helped you land gigs in the past. And whenever you have some free time on hand, keep checking those online job boards. You never know when you’d get an opportunity that just might be the turning point of your digital nomad career.
  3. Know all possible synonyms of ‘remote working’ – If you just filter available jobs with the term ‘remote working’ you are doing it all wrong. Agile workforce, flexible location jobs, work from home, work from anywhere, virtual job, online job, distributed workforce… These are just some of the terms that are used to refer to the kind of job that you need. Make sure you don’t skip on opportunities while skimming through the pile of job listings.
  4. Indulge in local networking – When you are in a city, make sure to connect or bond with people who may not have a job to offer now, but might have something coming up. For example, if you are working as a remote copywriter, say hello to the coffee shop owner who is soon going to launch his website. They’d need someone for the job, and you’d be definitely considered if the future website owner knows you are a good copywriter who can work from anywhere in the world.


So now you know the most important things to find your desired remote working job.

Recently I got some more information from Trevor Ashford who is a digital relations consultant at The Sixth Degree about a guide that dives into everything a business in 2021 needs to consider, such as:

  • The benefits of remote working, both personally for employees and for companies as a whole
  • A comparison of remote working models, including fully remote, hybrid, and distributed hubs
  • How to maintain company culture in a remote setting, and why it’s so important
  • How to boost employee engagement, including a step-by-step roadmap
  • Practical advice for implementing remote working, including tech solutions

This in-depth guide explores so many insights, but here are some highlights:

  • 65% of remote workers feel more productive, and 76% attribute this improved productivity to fewer distractions at home
  • Maintaining company culture in a remote working environment is key – happy workers are 12% more productive than the average employee
  • An employee with low engagement costs 18% of their annual salary or £1,800 for every £10,000 they make
  • 80% of employees want to work from home at least some of the time
