The Coolest Companies for Freelancers

Soon, plopping yourself in a desk chair from 9 to 5, for 5 days a week, will become a thing of the past. Companies are recognizing that by allowing employees to sleep in – or even better, to work from bed! – their workforce is happier and more productive. These options are particularly attractive to freelancers, who take on occasional or remote work across a variety of industries.  Whether you are looking for temporary work, looking to work remotely or to find a gig with flexible hours, these companies have job openings for you.
