Do work that matters from a place you love.
We are super excited to announce Remote Jobs at Atlas & Boots, a new section that matches skilled digital nomads and expats to companies genuinely committed to remote working.
We wanted to take a moment to tell our readers about the new section and to explain why it’s an important addition to our site.
As most of you know, Peter and I spend our time travelling and working on the road. In between our trips abroad, we are based in a tiny French village called Saint-Jouin-de-Marnes. It’s a good life; exactly the sort of life you would imagine of a tiny French village.
Life in our tiny French village
Naturally, we visit our hometown of London as often as possible to see family and friends. During our last visit in August, I sat on the London Underground and watched a woman clip her fingernails. As the brittle remnants from her body formed a grotesque mosaic at her feet, I couldn’t believe that this horror, or some permutation of it, used to be my life every day. I couldn’t believe that I had done it for so long.
I wasn’t tired of life as Samuel Johnson might suggest, but I was tired of London. I know that there are thousands of people who want to live in a city – as explained here beautifully by writer Marisa Bate – but I’m sure there are many thousands more who want to escape.
The two faces of London life
It’s dispiriting that so many of us are tethered to big cities by better pay and plentiful prospects. Some have managed to break those ties and now feature in aspirational articles touting a life of exotic food and travel, usually funded by impossibly glossy Instagram accounts.
This isn’t the case for us. Yes, we are travel bloggers but we still have to hustle and we still have to work. We encourage people to get outdoors but we also know there bills at home – which leads us to Remote Jobs.
We wanted to create a place where digital nomads (and those hoping to take the leap) can find coveted jobs that offer long-term employment; not temporary gigs that can be done in five minutes. Remote Jobs at Atlas & Boots offers stable, permanent jobs, allowing you to do work that matters from a place you love whether that’s a beach in Brazil or the comfort of your own home, free from the horror of a daily commute.
We will be growing the section in the coming months and adding more listings, so please do check in frequently. Remote Jobs allows you to do work that matters from a place you love. Glossy Instagram account not necessary.
We’ll see you out there!
