Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, working from home was becoming increasingly common. In 2018, 3.6% of U.S. workers worked remotely half time or more, and remote work as a whole had grown more than 159% since 2005.

During the pandemic, though, a whopping 51% of employed Americans have transitioned to working from home. And now, more people are working remotely than ever before.

Despite the growth of remote work, the coronavirus has taken a considerable toll on the job market. With millions of Americans unemployed and the future of unemployment benefits uncertain, many out-of-work job seekers are looking for remote jobs that can weather the storm during challenging times.

Our research team spends roughly 100 combined hours every day searching for, screening, and posting remote and flexible job opportunities to the FlexJobs site. We analyzed the job titles for remote jobs in our database to identify 20 job titles most often associated with various remote work options, which include 100% at-home work, partial remote work or the option to work remotely.

The job titles that follow also link to postings classified as “remote — during pandemic.” We’re including these so job seekers can see what kinds of remote jobs are available both during the pandemic and beyond.

If you’d like to work remotely but aren’t sure which jobs would allow you to do so, this list of common job titles for remote jobs — along with average salaries — can give you some insight and ideas for remote-friendly careers.
