Where would you work if you could work from anywhere?

That’s a question that employees at web app company Basecamp can answer for themselves — flexible work is one of the startup’s top perks.

While about 14 employees prefer to work at the company’s headquarters in Chicago, the company allows all of its approximately 50 employees to live and work from anywhere in the world.

Basecamp workers can clock in from cities across the country, run customer service from a country farm, or even check off assignments in a restaurant in Greece. The flexible arrangement also allows some of them to work on side businesses and projects, too.

Here are some of the places that Basecamp employees work and live:
