Have you heard about the concept of Digital Nomads - DN if you prefer? They have become a solid part of the modern workforce, combining remote work and travel into a lifestyle of exploration and travel. More and more companies are hiring freelance and sometimes remote workers. With the openings of so many co-working places around the world, could it become the new way of working?
If you want to quit your 9-to-5 and start living the digital nomad lifestyle, start looking at the following websites.
Remote Jobs in Europe
Malt is a curated local marketplace, connecting freelancers and companies. Currently the number one in France if you're looking for a freelance contract.

Brand new in France as a job board, Welcome to the Jungle is mostly a content website showcasing companies that recruit people and helping candidates to find a company that really suits them. Mostly full time jobs but you might also find some freelance and contract opportunities.

Remote Jobs Worldwide
We Work Remotely
We Work Remotely became one of the most popular places to find a freelance contract or remote jobs from customer service, to web design, to programming. We Work Remotely connects over 130.000 monthly users with remote opportunities.
Upwork features remote jobs in a suite of categories: from virtual assistants to mobile app developers. Upwork claims that more than 1 million companies use the site to hire remote freelancers. But be careful (and not too disappointed), the selection of profiles can be quite harsh for certain industries.
Not a big fan of the site's design and usability, but still, FlexJobs is one of the leadings job sites out there with remote work opportunities. They screen each posting so you can be confident they're legitimate with currently over 30.000 total positions listed.
Believe it or not but LinkedIn is actually really powerful when it comes to find a job and from time to time, you'll be able to find some freelance remote contracts. I highly recommend you to add as many contacts as you can and follow their news. Most of them will share jobs opportunities.
