Top 100 Companies for Remote Work



By Stuart Esrock, Ph.D. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has required more of us to become increasingly reliant on communication technologies.  Most students are now taking at least some remote courses.  And many folks across the country now find themselves working remotely.  While certainly we all hope for a return to the classroom for face-to-face instruction, the move to remote work may have longer lasting implications. 

With that in mind, has released its list of the top 100 companies to watch for remote jobs in 2021.  FlexJobs is a job-search website and its rankings were based on an analysis of remote-job postings for 57,000 companies.  Companies with the most remote-job opportunities made the list. 

This is the 8th time that FlexJobs has posted the list but despite the increasing prevalence of remote work, the website notes not much changed since 2020.  FlexJobs career development manager Brie Reynolds said, “It’s interesting because the list, over the years, has reflected the leaders in remote work, the companies who do it really well and do it often. If anything, the pandemic has strengthened those companies’ commitment to remote work. It’s really shown them to be the leaders in this area.”

The top fields for remote job opportunities, similar to last year, were computer/information technology, medical/health and project management. Fastest growing remote job opportunities were noted in marketing, administrative and human resources/recruiting. 

It’s expected that more companies will move toward telecommuting and/or make a permanent move to online technology that was prompted by the pandemic.  Remote work offers many benefits to companies including saving on office space and supplies as well as the ability to hire from a more diverse pool of candidates.  Employees enjoy a better work-life balance, reduced stress and other health benefits. 

Here are the Top 10 from the FlexJobs listing.  See full listing of employers.
