15 Top Employers for Remote Jobs in 2019

Are you hoping to finally land a work-from-home gig this year? If so, FlexJobs has identified the best companies to watch closely as 2019 continues to unfold.

In formulating its list of the top 100 companies to watch for remote jobs in 2019, FlexJobs analyzed the job postings of more than 51,000 companies to find the firms that offered the most “remote-friendly” openings last year. That means openings that offer some degree of remote work.

Brie Weiler Reynolds, a senior career specialist at FlexJobs, explains in a blog post:

“In 2018, these 100 companies posted the most remote job listings, and we expect their support for remote work to continue into 2019 and beyond.”

The top 15 companies on the list are:

  1. Appen
  2. Lionbridge
  3. VIPKID
  4. Liveops
  5. Working Solutions
  6. Amazon
  7. TTEC
  8. Kelly Services
  9. Concentrix
  10. UnitedHealth Group
  11. Williams-Sonoma
  12. LanguageLine Solutions
  13. Intuit
  14. TranscribeMe
  15. SYKES

Computer and IT companies — such as Appen and Lionbridge — had more remote-friendly job entries than any other type of employer. They made up more than one-fourth of the entries on the list. Medical and health companies are the second-most common on the 2019 list.

Other career fields offering numerous remote positions include sales and education, FlexJobs says.

Fields such as customer service, finance, and human resources and recruiting also featured heavily on the list.

It’s worth noting that about one-third of the companies that made this year’s list did not make the cut in 2018. So, if you didn’t land that dream work-from-home job last year, you’ve got new companies to target, and reason for renewed optimism as you look for the perfect telecommuting opportunity.

Should you work from home?

Many of us dream of stepping back from the rat race, avoiding the bumper-to-bumper traffic jams of our daily commute and trading in suits and skirts for days working in our pajamas.

But should you really try to make that dream a reality?

Maybe so. Some people are particularly cut out to work from home — or simply ill-suited for life in an office. As we recently wrote in “9 Signs That You Should Be Working From Home“:

“Not everyone has the discipline to work without supervision. But if you do, working at home can give you much greater control over your life — not to mention reduce your expenses and stress.”
