Commuting? We don’t know her. Whether you’re a weekend retail warrior or part of the 9-to-5 office crew, travelling to work can be a major bummer. So if you’re sick of being stuck in traffic or waiting too long for a bus, this one’s for you. We’ve rounded up 11 remote jobs in Ottawa so you can stay home and make that bread.
Working from home has its upsides. You can stay in your PJs all day, sit next to your fur babies, and sometimes you can even make your own hours.
Not to mention the time and effort you save from not travelling to and from your job five days a week.
Some of these companies are based in Ottawa and may require a few hours of in-office time. However, most of these businesses exist exclusively online.
So, you'll basically never have to leave the house again if you don’t want to.
You’ll also find a little something for everyone’s skill set on our list below.
So whether you’re a customer service queen or have an eye for social media, the possibility of working remotely is just a resume and cover letter away.
