If you land this remote job, you’ll help spread the digital nomad movement.

Remote Year is on a worldwide search for a travel planner for four-month and year-long excursions aimed at getting workers out of the office and exploring the world.

The company helps workers take their jobs on the road, whether they’re already in a  work-from-home role or if they need assistance convincing their employers to let them leave the cubicle and work from abroad.

The travel planner serves as a point person for “remotes,” as the company likes to call them. Remotes are people who have packed up their job and are traveling the world on a Remote Year program. You’ll help them on their journey with stellar travel advice, deals and logistics.

This position is full-time and available anywhere, though the listing does mention preference toward European and Asian time zone working hours. But if you’re a night owl, hey, feel free to apply from the East Coast. Some weekend availability is required.

Travel stresses some people out, though, so if this job isn’t a fit for you, check out our Work-From-Home Jobs Portal. We post new opportunities there all the time — and we vet them, too.
