Work and explore Sri Lanka!

Opportunities for digital nomads

Consistently ranked as one of the best travel destinations in the world by the likes of National Geographic and Lonely Planet in the past few years, Sri Lanka has something for everyone – pristine beaches, historic ruins, scenic hill country, national parks teeming with wildlife and flavorful food. Colombo, the capital city is an eclectic mix of traditional industries and budding high technology ventures as the country pushes to become the first upper middle income country in South Asia. After emerging from a civil war in 2008, the country is now eyeing tourism and IT sectors as the drivers for growth. English is the standards second language and is widely spoken across the country. The low cost of living and the ease of communication coupled with the country’s friendly, welcoming vibe has made it a favorite among backpackers and global nomads.
