There has been a rise in the number of digital nomads and remote workers, necessitating the development of infrastructure to support remote talent.

Data from a global HR solutions provider identified the cities best positioned to compete for remote jobs and benefit from the increased taxable income. Here are the 5 countries

1. Estonia
Some countries are setting the standard for having the infrastructure in place to support remote working. Tallinn in Estonia, is one of the top cities for startup founders and remote workers, according to the local talent index, followed by Barbados, Dubai, Georgia, and Bermuda.

Tallinn’s inclusion is surprising, as the Estonian capital is rarely mentioned as a popular location for remote workers to live.

The country has done well in identifying remote work opportunities and demonstrating that the city has a lot to offer visitors. There is also a lower cost for talent. Hiring people in low-cost locations may not sound appealing, but if you are a developer paying for your staff in London as well as studio rent, this is a good option.

Through e-Residency, Estonia has already transformed the way a country serves people outside of its borders. With the Digital Nomad Visa, Estonia is changing the way people around the world choose to work.
