Are you looking for remote jobs in The Netherlands? You came to the right place! Wether you’re living in The Netherlands and are looking for companies that work fully remote or looking to relocate to The Netherlands and work for a remote company; I got you covered.
Remote jobs are jobs that you can perform from any location in the world, in this case The Netherlands. Remote jobs are also known as work from home jobs. Or the Dutch canals or Spanish beaches if you wish!
The Problem with Finding Remote Companies
1. Companies claim to be remote, but are not in practise!
You see jobs advertised as remote..only to found out you have to be in the office twice a week!
If you’re really looking for a remote company look for remote first or 100% remote.
It’s often companies that have been remote since the start that are the companies that have really embraced the remote working culture.
Many companies that have been remote during the pandemic are now making employees go back to the office again.
If a company mentions hybrid on the job description or careers page it means you have to be in the office!
2. Companies can’t always hire in the European timezone
There are many interesting and fully remote companies, but they can’t always hire in Europe.
For example the American company Dropbox has many fully remote job openings, but you must be based in Canada, the United States or Poland to be considered.
This probably has to do with the different time zones the teams are in. Or they don’t have a local entity in other countries in Europe, such as The Netherlands. This makes it legally not possible to hire there.
