The Short Version: A young mother launched FlexJobs, an online job marketplace, in 2007 to revolutionize the workplace by making flexible job options more accessible to everyone. To date, FlexJobs has posted job openings from over 49,000 companies for everything from part-time sales reps to full-time marketing professionals. Dating experts can quickly and easily build a staff of remote experts by requesting an invite for a free FlexJobs employer account. Thanks to the internet, companies no longer have to limit themselves to hiring workers in their geographic area, and many business leaders have increased their company’s productivity by using FlexJobs to recruit remote employees around the world. You can take your company into the 21st century by hiring flexible and qualified applicants on the FlexJobs network.

Sara Sutton Fell began searching for remote work opportunities when she was pregnant with her first son. She wanted to find a job that afforded her the flexibility to get her work done on her own schedule. However, she soon found that the job market isn’t the most welcoming place for young mothers. Some jobs were too-good-to-be-true scams, and others didn’t allow her the freedom to take care of her children.

Sara Sutton Fell found the inspiration to create FlexJobs from her own experience as a young mother seeking employment.

She felt frustrated by her limited options, but she didn’t give up. Instead, she decided to create a job for herself as CEO of a company. She founded FlexJobs in 2007 to provide an online database of employment opportunities for remote job seekers. She believed you could have it all — as long as you find the right employer.

“I wanted to create a trusted, efficient site for people who want and need work flexibility,” Sara explained in an interview. “I believed there had to be a better way.”

Today, Sara has been dubbed the “Queen of Remote Work” by Glassdoor, and her online service has helped millions of job seekers find positions that offer a healthy balance between career and family.

In the dating industry, flexibility is often necessary to success. You have to adapt to the needs of modern singles, which is always changing as new daters come of age. Professionals in this industry often can’t do everything themselves because providing a comprehensive dating service requires more than solid people skills.

Sometimes dating coaches need a freelance writing team to make their blog sections stand out. Sometimes matchmakers need web experts to streamline their online services. Whatever you need, you can use simple search tools on FlexJobs to find it.

“FlexJobs is committed to helping people find a better way to work,” said Brie Reynolds, Senior Career Specialist. “As the leading online service for professionals seeking remote, flexible schedule, part-time, and freelance jobs, FlexJobs offers opportunities in over 50 career categories, ranging from entry level to executive and freelance to full time.”

Over 3M People Have Used the Site to Find Employment Worldwide

Since 2007, FlexJobs has amassed an impressive database of over 49,000 companies in a variety of industries. Over 3 million job seekers use that network to find part-time gigs or a career opportunities. Business leaders in the dating industry can use this job marketplace to place a virtual help wanted ad and collect applications from qualified candidates. It doesn’t cost anything to sign up and post a job opening.

FlexJobs provides streamlined tools to help flexible employers find skilled candidates.

“FlexJobs is a free service for approved employers,” Brie explained. “It’s the most targeted and effective way to find qualified candidates who are specifically interested in professional jobs with flexible work options.”

While a majority of the website’s users are after jobs in the US, FlexJobs also has job seekers in Canada, Australia, India, Germany, Japan, Mexico, the UK, and other countries.

FlexJobs vets every employer that signs up to ensure his or her company provides the flexible work environment that many modern job seekers want. If the team believes their interests are aligned, they send an invitation to use FlexJobs’ free services, which includes unlimited job postings and candidate sourcing. Approved employers can also access branding and recruitment tools.

Dating professionals can create a customized marketing package, for instance, to help spread the word about their job openings.

Whether you’re looking for an SEO expert or a development team, you can find job candidates with diverse skill sets on FlexJobs.

Success Stories From Employees & Employers Alike

FlexJobs has had quite a bit of success in the last decade, and the team is proud to have helped so many worthy job applicants find employment and flexible employers find the help they needed.

“The stories we hear from our successful members are what keep us going every day,” Brie told us.

Paul C., who lives in Washington, said he was hesitant to subscribe to an online jobs board, but he decided to take a chance on FlexJobs. “FlexJobs was well worth the subscription price,” he said in a testimonial. “It provided the best selection of telecommuting positions, and I ended up getting hired within the first month.” Paul now works fulltime as a Senior Security Intelligence Advisor at Anitian.

Justin R. has had success twice on FlexJobs. He landed a position as a seasonal technical support member for Intuit TurboTax, and then, once that position ended, he returned to the job marketplace to find his next gig. He now has a permanent position as Technical Support Agent at Xerox. “I give FlexJobs a 10 out of 10,” he said. “I am very satisfied with the services they provide.”

“FlexJobs provided the exact type of jobs that I was looking for, which I couldn’t find anywhere else,” said Kay H., a Family Travel Specialist in California. “They didn’t bombard me with too many emails, just daily job options and tips.”

A Flexible Work Environment Inspires the Innovative Team

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that flexibility is a central part of the work culture at FlexJobs. A diverse team of full-time, part-time, and freelance staff enjoy flexible hours as they work remotely. The company’s leadership team believes that when employees feel empowered to work according to their own needs, they become more productive and satisfied team members.

“We really walk the walk when it comes to flexibility,” Brie said. “Everyone works remotely from their home offices or their latest travel destinations, and most of our team members have the ability to set their own hours.”

The FlexJobs team keeps in close contact by using Sococo, an online workplace that helps remote teams collaborate without missing a beat. The virtual office allows coworkers to share ideas — even if they’re halfway around the world from one another. The CEO said this software “gives employees a sense of team. When you’re out of sight, you’re out of mind — but technology brings you together virtually.”

The freedom of FlexJobs’ work environment often inspires creativity and innovation. The team is constantly pushing one another to create more helpful and user-friendly tools for employees and employers. A couple years ago, FlexJobs launched Remote.co, a one-of-a-kind informational resource dedicated to assisting remote companies and workers.

FlexJobs also hosts the TRaD Works Forum, which brings thought leaders together to discuss telecommuting, remote, and distributed work. “The Forum is all about creating a community event for the companies at the forefront of this reality,” Brie said, “as well as for those keenly interested to learn how they can advance their organization’s telecommuting, remote, and distributed work efforts.”

FlexJob Offers People a Better Way to Work

Sara knows from experience how important it is for employees and employers to find the right fit for their individual needs. Everyone has different requirements and standards, so it’s important for the modern job market to show a little flexibility. Since 2007, FlexJobs has empowered thousands of employers to find part-time, full-time, seasonal, and freelance employees.

Dating professionals can use the website to post a job listing and quickly assemble a remote staff of marketers, designers, sales experts, and other skilled workers who can support the company’s mission statement. Whether you need help building the next big dating site or you want writers to expand your blog’s reach, you can use this extensive resource to recruit and hire skilled workers from around the world.

FlexJobs’ flexible services give employers and employees a way to work in harmony. “FlexJobs sets itself apart by providing job seekers with a better, safer, and more efficient way to find professional and legitimate flexible jobs,” Brie said. “It has helped nearly 3 million people in their job searches.”
