If you want to work from home – or from anywhere in the world – working in accounting, technology or graphic design can open new horizons for you. Even as more companies retire flexible working, employers in these sectors are promising a working model without mandatory office attendance or specific geographic restriction requirements for employees, according to new research from FlexJobs.
Also, companies in marketing, education and gaming are hiring for remote and flexible roles, Tony Vrana, chief career officer at FlexJobs, told CNBC Make It.
FlexJobs has identified the top companies hiring (2024) workers from around the world by analyzing its database and finding out which companies have the highest volume of job advertisements for flexible remote jobs between January and December 2023.
Full or part-time positions not restricted by location
All companies listed in the FlexJobs category offer full- or part-time remote jobs that are location-free and do not require office time. Here are 10 companies with a high volume of job postings from anywhere (see full list here):
- Fixed media
- A mythical sea monster
- Chainlink Laboratories
- Invisible technologies
- Wikimedia Foundation
- Oyster HR
- Primary address
Vrana says a notable change in the remote work landscape over the past year has been an uptick in companies hiring for positions without geographic restrictions.
Vrana adds that 16 new companies were included in FlexJobs this year, while other employers included in the report such as Chainlink Labs and the Wikimedia Foundation have been steadily hiring for remote and flexible jobs in recent years.
Salaries up to $260,000
Many of these jobs offer salaries in excess of $100,000. For example, a post for an engineering manager at the Wikimedia Foundation lists a salary range of $167,046 to $260,066. An ad is showing for a Senior Product Manager at Invisible Technologies with a base salary of $170,000.
If you're hoping to find a job with the above characteristics, Vrana recommends using keywords like “time zone independent” and “digital nomad” in your search as these are commonly used phrases in job descriptions.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, “we have seen a huge increase in the number of job seekers searching for jobs from anywhere on FlexJobs and it has not slowed down at all,” Vrana adds.
