If you’re one of the hundreds of disgruntled Yahoo! workers that now have to show up at the office full-time after the company’s new edict to cease work-from-home arrangements come June, you might be looking for a new job. Here are some firms that would give you the option of telecommuting:

  • Automattic: You’ve probably heard of this web developer if you blog. Automattic is the brains behind blogging platform WordPress that powers over millions of blogs. One of the most intriguing things about Automattic is that all of its employees work from home from all over the world. It currently has 12 open positions on their career site.
  • Cisco: According to a survey, 90 percent of employees at networking systems company Cisco are regular telecommuters. There are plenty of jobs available at Cisco as it is the largest networking firm in the world.
  • Intel: You will have lots of telecommuting opportunities at Intel. In fact, 80 percent of the semiconductor chip maker’s workers are regular telecommuters. Its website even says it offers “compressed workweeks and alternate work schedules, telecommuting, and part-time and job share opportunities . . . ” Look for an Intel position on its jobs page here.
  • Teach For America: One reason why the nonprofit Teach For America is regularly ranked as one of the happiest places to work is the flexible telecommuting work policy. As long as they get their work done, TFA employees are allowed to live anywhere and work from home although they are encouraged to spend time in classrooms. TFA is a huge organization with over 1,500 employees, so there are quite a number of job listings available.
