No matter if you call yourself a programmer, software developer, engineer, or coder, it's no secret your profession was amongst the first to take advantage of the remote work revolution. Of course they were! Nobody lives closer to the internet, the foundation upon which remote work has made its mark on the world.
But even though the trend started with developers and programmers, the vast majority of them are still working normal desk jobs on premises at their company's office.
Given the leverage programmers have in today's job market, it may be difficult to imagine why this is still the case. That said, it's easy to forget that remote work is still a new idea, and many people of all professions lack the role models and mutual connections of people who have already decided to more forward with that lifestyle.
And that brings us to the point of this post! Here's five digital nomad programmers out there in the world living the lifestyle they're always dreamed of.
