100 full-time work from home jobs – With average salaries

5 Mins read

Most people who talk about remote jobs are usually referring to low-paying, sporadic, “gig economy” jobs. For example, you can get paid for testing websites online. These are great but are not enough to make a full income. What about actual careers that are based from your home? These work from home jobs exist, and are increasingly becoming popular across the world. In fact, a recent research study found that somewhere around 37% of jobs in the US can be done entirely from home. And workers are taking advantage of this en masse. In 2019 31% of workers reported working for entirely remote companies.

Work from home careers are now very popular. Most positions, from accountant to programmer to nurse can now be done completely or mostly from home. The average median income for remote jobs across all sectors is $77,135. Many remote positions like Android Developer ($112,647) and Remote/Online Pharmacist ($100,504) have salaries that pay more than $100,000 a year.

How to find a work from home job

There are a few websites that will be your best friend if you are searching for remote-based jobs. First, go on over to Indeed.com. The reason why we like Indeed is that they have a very good way to search only remote jobs. Simply enter “remote” in the “Where” box of the Indeed search. This will pull up all of the jobs that were posts on Indeed that can be performed from anywhere.

Next, we recommend checking out Remoteco.com. This site is great because it includes only remote-based job postings. Some of them will be part-time, and others full-time so be sure to check out the details on each posting.

Lastly, some companies won’t advertise their job openings on a site like Zip Recruiter, Indeed, or RemoteCo. Instead, go to their specific recruitment page to see if there are any full-time openings. We have put together a list of more than 50 companies that either regularly hire for work from home positions or are entirely remote-based.
