Our Team

Sara Sutton Fell, FounderSara Sutton Fell is the founder and CEO of FlexJobs, which she started in 2007 as a result of her own need and desire for work flexibility, as well as the founder of Remote.co. She 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 those beliefs and her interest to spread awareness about work flexibility as an important topic, Sara launched 1 Million for Work Flexibility in 2013. For her work in the employment and technology fields, she was honored to be named a Young Global Leader (class of 2014) by the World Economic Forum. Sara is a graduate of the University of California at Berkeley, and lives in Boulder, Colorado, with her two children.

Emma Plumb, DirectorEmma Plumb is a passionate advocate for improving the way that work gets done through increased flexibility. Emma’s commitment to this issue started a decade ago when her employer at the time didn’t allow for any form of flexibility. When Emma’s boyfriend (now husband) broke his back in a fall and had to spend months on bed-rest, her request to work from home throughout his recovery was denied. She started a campaign to change her employer’s outdated policies, scouring the research and putting together proposals and reports. Fueled by a commitment to pushing for change on a broader scale, Emma joined Sara in 2013 to launch 1 Milion for Work Flexibility. Trusted media outlets such as U.S. News, Forbes, Inc., the Christian Science Monitor, and the Huffington Post have featured Emma’s expertise on work flexibility topics. A Stanford graduate, Emma lives in Connecticut with her husband (who’s now fully recovered!) and their daughter.
