Companies that pay co-working stipends

There are 100s of coworking spaces all across Ireland. They’re not just for remote workers. They house startups, freelancers, and large local enterprises too.

For remote workers they can help us have a distinction between work and home, but not every company allows it. The remote team in Amazon Ireland for example, can only work from home. Same for the eBay customer support roles. And the Shopify ones. There are some good reasons for this, but in the meantime, we want to cover the companies that not only allow it, but encourage and pay for it!

The average cost of a coworking space in Ireland is 200/month. This also happens to be the most common amount for a coworking stipend.

We had previously put together an overview of the co-working world in Ireland, which you can view here.

Automattic

They come up in quite a few of our pieces, but as one of the largest remote companies in the world, they would do! Automattic are the makers of WordPress and other tools, and have a public map of where they hire in Ireland.

They’ll pay your coworking space fee but if that’s not your thing, you can use your coworking allowance for coffee in the local coffee shop.
