We launched our search for Deel’s first-ever Social Media Nomad on September 21, 2022. It’s a dream job for one outstanding content creator to get paid while traveling Australia and New Zealand for six months via van while creating content that showcases the possibilities unlocked through flexible, remote work. During our open call for applications, which ran from September 21 and closed on October 11, 2022, we received over 1,400 applicants from all over the world for the role. After reviewing all applicant resumes, videos, and portfolios, we identified a diverse group of 42 candidates to move to interview with our team. From this group, we chose Carly Koemptgen as Deel’s first-ever social media nomad.
