Bolton Remote is the staffing firm that allows businesses of all sizes to build and manage remote teams.

For lower, mid-sized companies who don’t have access to the big offshore outsourcing companies, but want to find talent outside of their local area, Bolton Remote is a great solution.

The business world simply isn’t like that anymore,” says Bolton Remote co-founder Patrick Linton “But you have to hire and employ people the right way if you want to take advantage of the benefits.
