Why are jobs at companies with the most 100% remote jobs women’s jobs?
Women in the U.S. shoulder a disproportionate share of the unpaid care giving workload. They are still an overwhelming majority (75%) of caregivers. Women are more likely to work their careers around children and make changes like taking leave, finding a more flexible job or working from home.
To help women find jobs they can do completely from home, FlexJobs has identified the top 30 companies that had the most 100% remote job listings on the site so far this year. Although companies have expanded their views on what work can be done remotely, the top industries in this list are Computer/IT, Healthcare, and Education. This women’s jobs list is based on an analysis of over 57,000 companies and their 100% remote job posting histories in the FlexJobs database between since the start of the year. These jobs do not require any time in the office.

Three Important Recommendations for Highlighting Remote Work Experience and Talents
- State it clearly. List “Remote Work” next to your job title. For example, Director of Marketing (75% Remote Work)
- Include it in the descriptions of your past jobs or experience. For example, “Led a team of five customer service reps in a completely remote work environment during the pandemic, and successfully earned an average team satisfaction rating of 94%.” If you earned a degree or certification online, volunteered on a project where you did most of the work from home, worked at a distance from your coworkers across time zones, or even just worked from home even occasionally, include this remote work experience explicitly.
- Build it into your skills section. Discuss the types of skills it takes to be a successful remote worker. Time and task management, communication, self-management, the ability to work independently, and comfort with technology are some of the top skills employers like to see when hiring for remote jobs.
