For the fifth year in a row, FlexJobs announces the 100 top companies with remote jobs. These companies listed the most remote jobs in 2017, and that means they’re excellent contenders to lead the employer pack for remote job listings in the coming year. They’re also at the forefront of offering better, more flexible work options that allow professionals to balance work and life.Each year for the past five years, we’ve analyzed the job posting data in the FlexJobs database, which contains flexible job histories for over 49,000 companies, to find the 100 companies that posted the most remote-friendly job openings throughout the last year. Remote-friendly means the openings must offer some level of telecommuting (the levels on our site are 100%, mostly, some, or optional telecommuting).
If you’re hoping to find a remote job this year, it’s a good bet that these will be some of the top companies with remote jobs in 2018.
Watch this video overview of the list, and see the full list of companies below.
Remote Work Becomes Standard Way to Work
In previous years, remote work has often been described as a trend or a perk, but by reviewing this data annually for five years, we’ve seen remote work’s reputation shift from a trend to an acceptable mode of working.
Remote Work on the Rise: According to the “2017 State of Telecommuting in the U.S. Employee Workforce” report, remote work exceeds public transportation as the commute option of choice in more than half of the top U.S. metro areas. And remote work has grown far faster than any other commute mode. As of 2017, 43% of U.S. workers now work remotely at least occasionally, up from only, at the most, 9% of workers in 2007.
Careers and Job Titles for Remote Work: Five of the fastest-growing remote career categories are therapy, virtual administration, client services, tutoring, and state and local government. While a wide variety of jobs can be done from home, the 20 most common telecommuting job titles include teacher, writer, developer, analyst, sales representative, nurse, accountant, and program manager.
Notable Companies Supporting Remote Work: VIPKID earned the number one spot on the 2018 Top 100 list, with companies such as Amazon, Conduent, and Dell among the top 10 companies with the highest number of remote jobs posted in 2017. Some, such as PRA Health Services, Toyota, and Williams-Sonoma, are newcomers to the list, while others, such as Xerox, Kaplan, and UnitedHealth Group, have been featured on the list since 2014.
