13 Purpose-Driven Companies Hiring Remote Startup Jobs

13 Purpose-Driven Companies Hiring Remote Startup Jobs

People are rethinking where they live, how they work, and what they do with their time. The New York Times calls it the new YOLO Economy. Perhaps the term "YOLO" is a little too casual for what's going on here.

It's all about purpose — people want to find purpose and create lives that are more meaningful to them.

For some, that means moving to a city that makes them happy, or maybe moving home to be closer to family. For others, it means finding a new job. Or perhaps, maybe it's both. Boomerangs are flocking back to the Midwest in search of better lifestyles and work opportunities — and they end up finding their purpose, too. 

So if you're looking to join a purpose-driven team and do meaningful work in your career, here are 13 purpose-driven companies that are now hiring.
