To be allowed by an employer to work from anywhere certainly sounds like an awesome perk.
No wonder a survey carried out by FlexJobs the career site found remote work to be a desired perk among many professionals. 81 percent of them claimed that it’s the type of work flexibility they desire above all else.
And, according to Gallup, approximately 43% percent of Americans claimed they worked from home at least once in a while in 2016.
Despite this trend, not all companies will let you telecommute. Note that 95 percent of remote positions still have location requirements that limit where people interested in flex jobs can work.
However the companies cited here do otherwise. They are spread over a variety of industries. This includes some big names like Amazon, Dell and Hilton.
The positions offered range from customer service professional to researcher and editor. They are also available in divers industries, such as finance, healthcare, technology, and travel.
