Appen Ranks Top Among Companies Hiring Remote Workers
Appen is proud to announce that it has been ranked #1 on the FlexJobs‘ annual list of the Top 100 Companies to Watch for Remote Jobs in 2019. This list is based on an analysis of over 51,000 companies and their remote job posting histories in the FlexJobs database to identify the top 100 companies with the highest number of remote job openings during 2018. To be considered, the jobs offered by these companies had to be remote-friendly, either allowing for candidates to telecommute entirely or part of the time.
“It’s an honor to once again be recognized by FlexJobs as the leader in remote work opportunities,” said Mark Brayan, chief executive officer at Appen. “We are proud to offer a variety of flexible, work-from-home opportunities to thousands of people around the world, while supporting the rapidly growing machine learning and artificial intelligence markets.”
Appen has been named on the list for the past five consecutive years, and is ranking #1 for the second time. Appen hires a wide range of jobs with remote work options, such as internet analysts, social media evaluators, and transcribers. Overall, FlexJobs’ list represents more than 15 industries and are headquartered across 11 different countries.
“As we saw in the latter part of 2018, we expect 2019 to continue to be a job seeker’s market where companies will need to offer flexible/remote benefits to remain competitive and attract and retain the best talent,” said Sara Sutton, founder and CEO of FlexJobs. “As this list demonstrates, companies of all sizes and across all industries can adopt work-from-home and flexible work policies to meet the changing demands of the workforce,” Sutton concluded.
