2019 in Review & 2020 Expansion Plans

Remote.ly is Growing! See how we did in 2019 and a look ahead at growth in 2020!

A new decade is upon us as we inch closer to our 1 year anniversary in March! What a year it has been. Did you know that by the year 2025 it is estimated that remote offices will likely surpass fixed office locations? Remote.ly is a Portland-local business and was started by a remote worker after months of bouncing from coffee shop in search of the perfect workplace. Read more about Oliver's experience and the Remote.ly origin story, here.
