Now that COVID-19 vaccines are widely available in the U.S. and travel restrictions are easing up, it might seem more tempting than ever to pack your bags and take a vacation — especially after a year in quarantine. And while working remotely makes it easier to travel and work in beautiful destinations, jobseekers are looking for WFH opportunities that also allow them to enjoy those trips without having to log on — aka vacation time.
Luckily, there are plenty of companies out there offering remote flexibility and endless vacation days. If you’re among those looking for this kind of work-life balance, we’ve rounded up a list of 10 remote-friendly companies with *heart eyes emoji* unlimited PTO, plus lots of other perks:
If you’re an aspiring sommelier, this is the remote, vacay-friendly job for you.

The credit repair software company Credit Repair Cloud offers employees nutrition, yoga, mindfulness, and fitness classes, as well as financial perks: the opportunity to attend the company’s Credit Repair Expo, a budget for personal development, profit sharing, and, of course, those sweet, sweet vacation days.
Content creator Future plc offers employees unlimited PTO, profit pool bonuses, free digital magazine subscriptions, staff socials — so you don’t totally miss out on seeing your co-workers in person — and a discounted gym membership for those who want to take advantage.
In addition to their limitless PTO, GameChanger, an app for youth sports teams and coaches to track stats, scores, and highlight reels, gives its employees a technology stipend of $3,500 every two years. Because the app is owned by DICK’S Sporting Goods, you’ll also get the sportswear retailer’s teammate discount — hello athleisure and plenty of gear for summer hiking, camping, and beach trips.

In addition to unlimited vacation, employees of TeamSnap, a software for organizing youth sports and other teams, get paid parental leave for everyone, 100 percent premium coverage of medical, dental, and vision for employees and their family, equity, and a $1,500 learning and development stipend.
Of course, unlimited PTO can have its drawbacks — make sure to familiarize yourself with the pros and cons, and always do your research into a company on sites like GlassDoor before accepting an offer.
