Sara Sutton has long been passionate about helping people find jobs. Currently, she is the Founder & CEO of FlexJobs and Remote.co, two leading services for remote and flexible job opportunities, and she started her career in 1995 when she dropped out of university to co-found JobDirect, the first online entry-level job site (sold to Korn|Ferry International in 2000).
Sara believes that integrating remote work can positively impact people’s lives and transform organizations to be more modern, productive, efficient, healthy, environmentally-friendly, and overall resilient given the various needs and demands going on in the world around us. In order to advance these conversations, she has also launched 1 Million for Work Flexibility and The TRaD* Works Forum. Sara is considered an expert on a wide variety of future of work topics and has contributed to thousands of media pieces, including the BBC, TechCrunch, Time, the Wall Street Journal, The NY Times, Fast Company, CNN, NBC, Forbes, Inc., and many others.
She is also a member of the World Economic Forum’s Young Global Leader community and a graduate of the University of California at Berkeley. She lives in Boulder, Colorado with her two children.
