I've always wanted to work a remote job. My current job is in Portland, Oregon, but I live somewhat far away (about a 1 hour commute). Remote work has always sounded like a good fit for me, I feel like I am good at managing my time, and can hold myself responsible for things.
But it seems like the type of thing that is "too good to be true". What are the downsides? I feel like if it really was as awesome as sitting at home and coding all day, everyone would be doing it!
Also, if I do end up looking for a remote job, what should I be looking for? What should I avoid? Any guidance on landing a remote job would be super helpful.
