Who says you need to be in a fixed location to find a great job? While it’s true that about 95% of remote jobs require a location — for reasons such as regular face-to-face meetings or proximity to clients or projects — that’s not always the case.

As job seekers enter a rebounding job market that’s experienced the rich benefits of working virtually during the pandemic, it’s a prime time to dive deeper into your quest to find remote work. To help job seekers interested in finding remote jobs that can truly be performed from anywhere, FlexJobs has identified 13 common remote job titles that typically do not have a location requirement.

These job titles are commonly found in the FlexJobs database of work-from-anywhere jobs — remote jobs that provide tremendous latitude for people looking to work untethered from geographic requirements.

Whether you’re a digital nomad or simply someone seeking to cut your ties to a traditional location-bound job, a diligent search may yield a wealth of employers that don’t care where you’re located, as long as work is getting done efficiently and effectively.

Following are remote job titles that typically do not impose geographic requirements of the remote worker, as well as the average salary according to PayScale.
