Find online jobs that let you work and travel

Freelance jobs:

Upwork - The biggest marketplace for freelance jobs. I’ve found some great clients from this site, but due to poor customer service for freelancers I no longer use this site. It can be great for starting out and covers pretty much every skill and industry.

Cloud Peeps - curated jobs with interesting clients. Mostly in the tech and marketing fields.

Croudie Network - Another great one for tech and marketing jobs, Croudie Network works with freelancers from around the world. Work is within their full-time agency and the staff are wonderful to work with. If you apply. I'd love it if you use referral code:23SE

Language teaching jobs:

VIPKID - The biggest language learning platform. They work with teachers from all over the world but favour a north american accent. Undergraduate degree required but you don’t need TEFL.

Italki - A marketplace to set up your own language teaching services. This is a great place for native speakers of languages other than English to find clients.
