I was browsing job opportunities for Front End Web Developer positions when I found one that looked promising and offered remote work. However, when reading through the job offer on their website I found that the remote work is only offered in certain locations:
The majority of our team is remote, and we offer remote work from California, Texas, Arkansas, Ohio, or Illinois
It's worth noting that they offer relocation to their main headquarters in Connecticut, so it's not like they only offer remote work to places close to the HQ.
Why would a company specify specific locations to work remote at a job that can seemingly be done anywhere? Is it just company policy or is there some sort of legal/licensing issues that they've only completed in those states? Or perhaps I'm just reading it wrong and that's just the locations their current remote employees work.
I'm only asking because I want to know if it's worth cleaning up my resume and going through the application process in hopes they allow it or if it's likely set in stone.
