Sara Sutton Fell
CEO and Founder of FlexJobs
Sara Sutton Fell is the CEO and Founder of FlexJobs, an award-winning career website for telecommuting, flexible, freelance, and part-time jobs. Sara founded FlexJobs in 2007 while she was pregnant with her first son, after she experienced first-hand the frustrating search for professional jobs that also offered flexible work options. Having also co-founded an entry-level employment service in 1995 (JobDirect, later sold to Korn|Ferry International in 2000), she has long been passionate about helping people find jobs that make their lives better, and she is thrilled that her own experience as a working mom is now helping others who want or need work flexibility.
Sara believes that a modern workplace should address the needs of today's workforce, and that utilizing workplace technology to support telecommuting and flexible work will achieve societal, environmental, and economic benefits for both employees and employers. In support of that belief, Sara launched the 1 Million for Work Flexibility in 2013, Remote.co in 2015, and The TRaD* Works Forum (*Telecommuting, Remote, and Distributed) in 2016. For her work in the employment and technology fields, she was named as a Young Global Leader (class of 2014) by the World Economic Forum. Sara is a graduate of the University of California at Berkeley, and currently lives in Boulder, Colorado, USA with her two children.
