About Us

"There are skilled, talented, smart people everywhere in the world - amazing things start to happen when you look outside of the morning commute."

Patrick Linton Co-Founder / CEO

On a mission to help you thrive in this new world of remote.


Bolton was founded in 2013 based on the simple belief that there are amazing, talented people anywhere in the world, and companies that stay within their hiring “comfort zone” will ultimately miss out on the incredible benefits of a geographically diverse workforce.

But the reality for most companies is that the prospect of finding, attracting, managing and retaining a remote, global workforce is a significant barrier to giving it a try. It doesn’t help that many of the options out there to get remote talent are sub-par – especially when it comes to hiring in emerging markets with unfamiliar cultures or complexities.

At Bolton, we’ve torn those barriers down. Join us as we change the way that companies bring on talent – remotely – from the most exciting, dynamic and cost competitive countries in the world.

Meet Bolton's Founders

Patrick Linton

As an American raised in Japan and Singapore, starting a company that helps businesses build cross-border teams came naturally to Patrick. Bolton’s mission to flatten the world of hiring is the result of a life lived between cultures, and he believes that our world will be a better place to live and work in if we embrace all kinds of diversity - racial, gender, cultural, and geographical.

Jason Bolante

Originally from Florida, Jason spent most of his adult life traveling and working across the globe, eventually settling in Manila. Born to Filipino immigrant parents, Bolton’s mission hits very close to home. In the past, the Philippines’ best and brightest have had to physically leave the country for jobs, whereas Bolton enables people to stay home but work abroad – this time, remotely.

"I've seen great talent in emerging markets, but most models of remote didn't work for me. Bolton has figured out how to make it work."
