What is MakeMyMove?

MakeMyMove is a marketplace product that connects remote workers and other work-from-anywhere talent with communities that are attracting new residents. We help workers find the right place, and we help communities build and promote programming to attract those workers.

What is a remote worker?

Remote workers are employed full-time and typically do their jobs from a computer. They can work from their house, an office, a co-working space, coffee shop, maybe sometimes from the bleachers at their kids' swim meet. Remote workers who have moved through our programs have titles like Customer Service Agent, Software Engineer, Insurance Advisor, and more. Examples of roles that aren't considered remote include Delivery Driver, Mechanic, and Cashier.

How much does it cost?

We’re 100% supported by communities. If you are a worker that is thinking about making a move, our service is free.
