If you're getting a job from Workaway make sure they will provide supporting documentation so you can get a visa and work permit. Many Workaway jobs are murky regarding legality. Good luck to you and enjoy

looked at workaway and it appears many of the jobs are nothing but volunteering or "help us for room an accommodations", which i guess will extend ur $$$, but wont help with getting a visa or saving anything..
Fine if you just want pass time somewhere an not spend anything

the one i found says that they'll pay 25 bucks a week + arrange for a visa if i stay for 6 months or longer. accommodation and food etc. are included plus there were a bunch of reviews so it seems pretty legit.

At the moment the answer is no, but at the moment US passport holders are barred from entering Cambodia anyway, so I would wait a bit before buying any tickets if I was you. Impossible to predict future travel rules and regulations right now.

I would suggest putting plans to move over on hold if I'm honest, this ting might get a bit wild before it gets calmer.

We don't know what nationality you are but if you are American, or four other nationalities, the Cambodian government has just barred entry starting Tuesday. Who knows how long it will last.

Also you may want to buy a refundable ticket as I heard some people's flights were canceled and they got little of their money back.
