Certain job titles jump to mind when thinking of remote jobs: writer, software developer, and customer service, to name a few. And though these job titles are often associated with the most remote roles, if the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that a surprising number of jobs can be done remotely.
For example, FlexJobs, Remote.co’s sister company, recently released its list of the Top 100 companies for remote jobs in 2021 and shared that, among other job fields, accounting and finance, project management, and mortgage and real estate jobs have experienced 25% growth from March to December 2020.
Many companies and positions have made the transition from in-person to remote, and some of these job titles are rather unexpected. Below is a list of 10 of the most surprising remote jobs that are posted on Remote.co and hiring right now!
