I'm currently a Lead IT Engineer that works remotely %100 of the time in the United States. I want to move back to Ecuador though to be closer to family. Going to approach my work about this next year but want a backup plan in case it doesn't go well. Does anyone know of anyone working remotely from Ecuador / South America? Should I expect a lower salary working from another country? Is it even reasonable to make this request?
At my company I know of someone who had to quit and be brought back on as a consultant so they could work remotely from Canada. My plan was to take this approach with working from Ecuador but I would have to step down from being a Lead as they have to be fulltime employees.
