Want this to be the year you begin working from home? Odds are in your favor if you work as a machine learning engineer.

That position — at the intersection of computer programming and artificial intelligence — takes the honor as the best job that can be done remotely in 2019, according to a recent FlexJobs analysis.

FlexJobs’ ranking in based in part on job-search site Indeed’s own list of the best jobs in the U.S. for 2019. To be eligible for Indeed’s rankings, jobs had to be fast-growing and offer top pay — defined as an average base salary of at least $75,000.

FlexJobs took this Indeed list and compared it with FlexJobs’ own database to identify which of these great jobs also offer work-from-home opportunities.

FlexJobs posts job openings that are part-time, remote or freelance — or otherwise offer some type of flexible working condition.

  1. Machine learning engineer — average base salary is $146,085
