Think about a job in marketing, technology, or video game design if you want to be able to work from anywhere, maybe even while traveling the world.
New research from FlexJobs shows that these areas continue to offer the most remote and flexible jobs. Since the start of the pandemic, the trend has stayed the same.
Keith Spencer, a FlexJobs career expert, says that jobs in education and languages that can be done from anywhere are also growing.
In a work-from-anywhere job, employees work from home, no matter where they are or what time zone it is.
Even though more companies are making workers go back to the office, businesses in these fields are doubling down on their commitment to a work model that doesn’t require workers to be in the office or be in a certain place.
FlexJobs has found the top companies hiring for work-from-anywhere jobs right now by looking at its database to see which companies had the most remote, location-flexible job posts between January and June 2023.
All of the companies on the list have full-time or part-time jobs that can be done from home and don’t have to be done in the office. Here are seven companies that post a lot of jobs that can be done from anywhere:
- The Wikimedia Foundation
- Invisible Technologies
- Cash App
- Chainlink Labs
- Magic Media & Entertainment Group
Here, you can look at the whole list.
Flexa Careers says that the “unprecedented” desire for flexibility among professionals is one reason why the market for work-from-anywhere jobs is growing.
Flexa Careers says that the number of job seekers interested in “work from anywhere” jobs went up from 80% in April to 88% in June. That’s the biggest rise since the company started keeping track of this data a year ago.
Many jobs that you can do from anywhere pay well over $100,000. For example, the pay range for a senior site reliability engineer at the Wikimedia Foundation is between $105,309 and $163,646.
The minimum salary for a payment operations manager at Cash App is between $156,400 and $184,100, based on where the employee lives.
Several of the companies on the FlexJobs list say that being able to work from anywhere has helped them hire the best people from all over the world. The employer says that about half of the Wikimedia Foundation’s staff is based outside of the U.S. Invisible Technologies, on the other hand, says that they have workers on six countries.
