Nomad Playground gives you a roadmap for finding high-quality remote-friendly work faster and with less headaches. Hear from founder Luke Tierney how it works.
The single biggest obstacle to more people trying the nomadic lifestyle is ability to fund the adventure (and by extension since the travels of a nomad are usually funded from income vs. savings, this means access to quality remote work). Today's guest is Luke Tierney (no relation) of NomadPlayground.com. Luke is on a quest to save you time and heartache by curating the best remote work sites out there that cater to nomads. Luke was a nomad himself from an early age and found a huge discrepancy in the quality of job listings depending on the source. Reputable, big-name sites often consumed disproportionately large amounts of time and yielded poor results relative to some of the lesser-known alternatives. Luke tackled this problem by creating essentially the "Yelp of job sites" by aggregating reviews from job seekers and categorizing the sites on various dimensions.
