A whole 78% of respondents to FlexJobs’ 7th annual survey of 3,000 workers had at least a college degree, and 32% were manager level or higher.

While most of the jobs listed above are for senior-level positions, remote jobs are also available for people at the entry-levelexperienced, and manager levels of their careers. As more companies adopt remote work policies, there are growing opportunities for meaningful careers across industries to be done while working from home. And with today’s tight labor market, highly qualified professionals are in a prime position to land a high-paying job that includes highly coveted remote work options.
