Default At Home Coding Companies

Hello everyone. Amazingly enough I managed to pass the CPC exam the first time out. I am looking for a company that hires coders to work from home. I have already applied to Aviacode but was wondering if there were any other solid and reputable companies out there. When I look it up on the web I get an extensive list of At-home opportunities instead. If you can give me any advice I would appreciate it. Thank you.

Try T-Systems. They contract coders as well.

I presume you have at least 3 years of coding experience if you're looking to work from home. It's not something you can just jump into I'm afraid. Take a look at Contexo's website for available jobs and narrow your search to "remote positions" and see what the requirements are for posted jobs. You may be better trying to get your foot in the door and doing a coding job first, as a certification does not necessarily mean you know how to code. Experience counts for a lot and you'll need a lot more help than you think initially.
Good luck. I hope you prove me wrong.
