Six-figure positions from a variety of industries can be done from the comfort of home

“It’s a common misconception that work-from-home jobs are scams, only exist in specific industries like customer service or data entry, and are lower-paying, but that couldn’t be further from the truth,” said Sara Sutton, CEO & Founder of FlexJobs

With wages, salaries and benefits rising at the fastest rate in a decade, many workers are leveraging the tight labor market to explore new job opportunities. In fact, according to a new survey, most workers making more than $100,000 are planning to quit their jobs within a year.

The number of people who have quit a job due to lack of flexibility has also doubled from 17% in 2014 to 34% in 2018. Given this environment, FlexJobs has identified 15 remote jobs with annual salaries of $100,000 or more to help job seekers explore the variety of six-figure remote positions available in today’s professional job market.

“It’s a common misconception that work-from-home jobs are scams, only exist in specific industries like customer service or data entry, and are lower-paying, but that couldn’t be further from the truth,” said Sara Sutton, CEO & Founder of FlexJobs. “In fact, the average telecommuter earns a higher median salary than an in-office worker. As more companies adopt remote work policies, there are growing opportunities for meaningful and high-paying careers across industries to be built 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,” Sutton concluded.

Work flexibility appeals to highly educated and experienced workers. 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. Below are 15 jobs to demonstrate that highly qualified workers interested in achieving work-life balance through flexible jobs do not need to sacrifice salary.

Each of the 15 jobs, ordered by highest-paying, meets the following criteria:

-The job is a full-time position
-The job offers remote work options
-The job is professional-level, requiring advanced experience and education
-The job pays at least $100K annually, according to the actual job posting from the company
