PROVO, Utah (January 28, 2016) — Vivint Smart Home™, a leading smart home technology provider, today announced that it has been named to FlexJobs’ annual list of the Top 100 Companies to Watch for Telecommuting and Remote Jobs in 2016. FlexJobs, a job service specializing in remote and flexible job opportunities, analyzed the job posting histories of more than 40,000 companies to identify the top 100 most likely to incorporate telecommuting into their hiring practices in 2016. To be considered, companies had to offer a telecommuting-friendly component to some of their jobs, such as an arrangement to telecommute entirely, part of the time, or as an option.

“We are honored to receive this distinction from FlexJobs,” said Starr Fowler, senior vice president of human resources at Vivint Smart Home. “Providing opportunities to work from home is key to our ability to attract top talent who value the flexibility of telecommuting and a better work-life balance. We are excited to continue to be a leader in this field.”

Currently, Vivint has telecommuting options for engineers, field service professionals and trade certification specialists, and is expanding telecommuting opportunities in its customer care center in 2016. Headquartered in Provo, Utah, Vivint is one of only two Utah companies recognized on the list.

“Vivint Smart Home is one of the forward-thinking companies that understands that integrating telecommuting options is a smart business strategy," said Sara Sutton Fell, founder and CEO of FlexJobs. “Telecommuting can benefit companies in so many ways, including cost savings, increased productivity and retention, better candidate pools, improved company culture and employee health, and many others.”

Job titles like writer, engineer, marketing manager, healthcare consultant, case manager, development director, recruiter, sales representative, account executive, IT analyst, clinical research associate, project manager, and interpreter / translator are some of the most commonly found when searching for jobs that offer telecommuting options.

Since 2005, the number of telecommuters has grown by 103 percent in the United States. People who telecommuted in both 2014 and 2015 said that they telecommuted 22 percent more in 2015, according to a recent FlexJobs survey.
