About Us

Why Roam?

The combination of increasing accessibility of high-speed internet worldwide, advancement in remote working technology and the shift in corporate culture that is driven by the now millennial-dominated workforce have sparked an explosion in remote work. This ideological shift in the way employers and employees are thinking of the traditional workplace has given people the opportunity to see the world, truly immersing themselves in other cultures without putting their careers on hold.

Why Roam with us?

Professional Development

We partner with companies to ensure that there is an eclectic mix of professional backgrounds in our group of Roamers. A major focus of our trips is to “travel and work remotely, without putting your careers on hold“. This is more than an opportunity to travel, it’s a way help accelerate your career and expand your professional network throughout worldwide.

Highest Quality

We are obsessed with providing the highest quality experience possible for each of our Roamers. This means painstakingly examining every detail of a trip and making decisions based on providing a premium travel & work experience every step of the way. It is our priority to never sacrifice quality, nor safety, for anything. To us, this is just common sense.

The “We” in We Roam…

Community matters to us. We think there is also a lot to be said for traveling with a community of like-minded professionals.

  • Travel communities are mobile incubators for professional relationships. Working and exploring side-by-side with other Roamers of different professional backgrounds provides an unrivaled opportunity for business development, immersive networking and career advancement.
  • Travel groups inevitably lead to life-long personal relationships — as anyone who has studied abroad or traveled extensively can attest to.
  • We Roam has partnered with some of the best local shared workspaces around the world, giving you access to special networking/speaking events and a world of opportunities that are simply not easily accessible to solo travelers.

Our Team

Sean Harvey
Sean HarveyFounder
Sean caught the travel bug after studying abroad in Barcelona in 2009, which later led to working and living in Madrid, Spain from 2010-2012. After returning to the US, he began working in enterprise tech sales for Yelp (first in San Francisco and later in NYC, where he currently resides). While working for Yelp, Sean continued to extensively travel the world and never lost his vision for a location-independent “future workplace”. We Roam was born from the idea that travel and remote work can exist even in normal, everyday companies — combining cultural experiences with professional development that actually advances your career.
Nathan Yates
Nathan YatesFounder and Attorney
Nathan developed a passion for travel as a student while living and traveling throughout Europe and Southeast Asia before completing a JD/MBA and entering the world of corporate law/venture capital. Though mostly confined to a New York City office for the last few years, Nathan never lost his belief that it is possible for bold individuals to pursue their love of travel, without putting their careers on hold. Nathan is devoted to making this belief a reality for like-minded professionals everywhere — ushering in a new era of mobile, remote work forces.
