The last time I was job hunting, several friends suggested I look for freelance writing gigs. I gave them all insane amounts of side eye. Not because there's anything wrong with freelancing - it's just not for me. I love working on my own projects, but I also cherish working with and being challenged by a team.

If you're like me, and freelance, task-oriented remote jobs like article writing, data entry, transcription, or professional survey taking (yep, that exists), aren't your thing - don't worry. There are more full-time remote opportunities than ever before that offer you the freedom of managing your own time, the security of consistent monthly income, the support of a team, and the promise of growth. In fact, we've got over 200 on PowerToFly.

10 Best Work-From-Home (Remote) Jobs

1. Account Executive

Who It's Good For: A self-starter with previous experience or an interest in Sales.

Sound Like You? Check Out: Account Executive at Octane AI

Why You Can Do It Remotely: You don't need to be in a particular location to make sales calls, deliver pitches, or send follow-up emails. And if you have to fly from an office to meet a client, you can just as easily fly from your hometown.

Average Annual Salary: $56,390

2. Physician, Nurse, or Nurse Practitioner

Who It's Good For: An experienced medical practitioner ready to swap 12 hour shifts for a more flexible schedule.

Sound Like You? Check Out: Nurse Practitioner at Forward

Why You Can Do It Remotely: New technology is changing the way healthcare is delivered. You can provide wellness and medical education, patient-centered care, and treatment virtually, all while collaborating with a multi-disciplinary team of engineers, physicians, and medical assistants.

Average Annual Salary: $68,943

3. Recruiter

Who It's Good For: A people-person skilled in market research, project/time management, and negotiation.

Sound Like You? Check Out: Talent Acquisition Manager at DuckDuckGo

Why You Can Do It Remotely: As remote work takes off and fully remote teams become more common, it only makes sense that recruiters at these companies would be remote as well. You can use tools like LinkedIn to tap a global talent pool, from wherever you work best.

Average Annual Salary: $55,869


4. Software Developer/Engineer

Who It's Good For: Self-directed (and disciplined) coding enthusiasts who love problem solving and having the freedom to work whenever they feel most focused.

Sound Like You? Check Out: ADD!!!!

Why It Can Be Done Remotely: Arguably, not only can programming be done remotely - it should be! Why? Writing code requires undisturbed blocks of time rarely found in traditional workplaces.

As computer scientist and entrepreneur Paul Graham observed in his essay on makers' vs. managers' schedules:

"Most powerful people are on the manager's schedule...But there's another way of using time that's common among people who make things, like programmers and writers. They generally prefer to use time in units of half a day at least. You can't write or program well in units of an hour. That's barely enough time to get started."

Office culture was designed with managers' schedules in mind, and thus makes adhering to a makers' schedule extremely difficult. Remote work, alternatively, is much more conducive to this. After all, it's a lot easier to snooze your Slack notifications than it is to ignore your boss when they're literally hovering over your shoulder.

Average Annual Salary: $95,678

5. Content Strategist

Who It's Good For: Creative thinkers and top-notch communicators (writers) who also know their way around a spreadsheet

Sound Like You? Check Out: Content Strategist and Writer at RebelMouse

Why It Can Be Done Remotely: Like programmers, content strategists are makers - they need large, undisturbed blocks of time to both create content and strategize about long-term goals. Technology and the nature of remote work can help ensure content strategists are able to communicate efficiently with their teams and organize meetings when they'll be constructive, not distracting.

Average Annual Salary: $89,698 (not specific to remote)

6. Community/Social Media Manager

Who It's Good For: Social Media gurus with a can-do attitude and ability to self direct.

Sound Like You? Check Out: ADD

Why You Can Do It Remotely: You don't need to sit in an office to write catchy tweets, upload insta worthy posts, or respond to customers' posts/questions. Solid internet connection + social media savvy = success.

Average Annual Salary: ADD

7. Web or Graphic Designer

Who It's Good For: Designers who do their best work independently or from the comfort of their own home

Sound Like You? Check Out: Marketing Designer at Help Scout

Why You Can Do It Remotely: No doubt there's value in brainstorming with your team, but once you know the needs of a project, most design work can be done independently and then shared. With tools like Zoom, Jyra, Slack, it's easier than ever before to share your work, get feedback, and hit deadlines. (And, like programmers and content strategists, designers are also more likely to benefit from a maker's schedule - noticing a pattern, yet?)



Average Annual Salary: $86,143

8. Customer Success Manager

Who It's Good For: Good communicators who love helping others and problem solving.

Sound Like You? Check Out: Customer Success Lead at Manifold

Why It Can Be Done Remotely: Most customer service needs can be met over the phone and online. With a computer and good internet connection (and enough patience), you can handle all your customers' needs from wherever you are.

Average Annual Salary: $63,589

9. Operations management

Who It's Good For: Data-driven problem solvers with a passion for process improvement.

Sound Like You? Check Out: Senior Operations Officer at Avaaz

Why You Can Do It Remotely: For operations that don't require physical oversight, most operations management - tracking KPIs, handling POs, and optimizing processes - can be done from anywhere.

Average Annual Salary: $69,470

10. Data Analyst/Scientist

Who It's Good For: Detail oriented stats masters skilled at identify and understanding trends

Sound Like You? Check Out: Data Operations Specialist at Karat

Why You Can Do It Remotely: With more data than ever before at our fingertips, companies know the value of hiring folks who know "big data" as more than just a buzzword. True stats buffs are hard to come by, so expertise often outweighs location.

Average Annual Salary: $82,605

Salary Negotiation Tips For Women: 10 Expert Tactics

Why Asking Matters and How To Do It The Right Way

"How much do you want?" can feel like a trick question when you're negotiating salary.

The first time I was asked this question, I had no idea what to say. I just knew that what I'd been offered wasn't enough. Having relocated from the U.S. to Argentina just a month prior, I was still learning the market and was worried about having my offer rescinded if I asked for too much. Knowledge is power in a negotiation, and in my ignorance of local norms and rates, I found myself feeling powerless and frustrated.

The hiring manager seized on my silence and asked me another question: "What's the minimum you'd accept?" Not knowing how to stall for more time, I blurted out my actual minimum. He flashed a toothy grin and said, "Done." I knew then and there that I'd gone way too low - his smile said it all.

I broke two cardinal rules of negotiation that day:

PowerToFly Holiday Gift Guide: Our Must-Have Work-From-Home Items

What To Buy For Your Favorite Remote Worker (Or Yourself!)

My friends were pretty jealous when I told them I'd found a remote job. They pictured me choosing my hours, working from the comfort of my bed, and rocking pajamas 24/7. All great things... in moderation.

Just a little over a month into my role at PowerToFly, I've already experienced many of the pros and cons of working from home. I know I'm not alone in this - the remote workforce is only growing (9 million people in the U.S. alone worked from home at least half of the time in 2017).

The beauty of remote work is that it lets you decide what kind of environment you'll be most productive in… but the downside is that if you don't build that environment for yourself, you might find you've got a lot of back pain (turns out, working from bed isn't so comfortable after all) and not much energy.

So in the spirit of the holidays, I asked my more experienced remote coworkers to share their must-have work-from-home items - the little things that keep them sane and smiling during their daily grind.

Whether you already work from home, are looking to do so in the future, or are shopping for someone who does (cough cough, Mom), this holiday gift guide is for you.


1. Blue light glasses to protect your eyes from long hours looking at the computer (and to keep you looking sharp at the same time).


Get them from Amazon for $21.99

Our Senior Marketing & Community Manager Lauren says: "I've never worn glasses EVER, but when I started working remotely my eyes got so tired. I've seen a huge difference after I started wearing blue light glasses, and no headaches!"


2. A bullet journal to help you stay on top of your goals. So you know you're being productive even when your boss can't literally pat you on the back.

Get it on Amazon for $9.06

Our Customer Success Associate Brinley says: "I use it for everything – hand-drawn calendar, to-do lists, and even personal stuff like budget planning and weekly goals."


3. A laptop tray so you can be productive from wherever you're most comfortable. (You haven't really worked from home until you've worked from your bed.)


Get it from Barnes & Noble for $39.95

Our Recruiting Manager Amy says: "I love my laptop tray!!! you can fit your planner, your laptop and most importantly, your coffee."


4. A productivity planner to help you become more intrinsically motivated. (Ideal for those lacking the artistic talents required for bullet journaling.)

Get it on Intelligent Change for $24.95

Our President and Cofounder Katharine says: "It helps me manage and protect my time so that when I have creative work that requires a lot of focus, I can break it down into short, intense chunks and be more efficient."


5. A stylish stone diffuser that brings your favorite scent to wherever you're working.

Get it from Vitruvi for $119

Our Senior Account Executive Anastasia says: "Right now I'm working in a room that smells like a forest after a light rain." I've definitely never heard anyone say that about their cubicle.


6. A gym/workout class membership to keep you active (and sane) during the week - because exercise makes you happy and being happy makes you more productive! And a little bit of human interaction doesn't hurt, either.

Our Mid-Market Account Executive Deveshe says: "It's important for me to get out, shake a leg and jump around. Otherwise I wouldn't step out through the week."


7. A Peloton stationary bike so you can get in a great workout even when it's too cold to leave the house. (And once you invest this much money, you know damn well you'll actually use it, or lose ten pounds from gnawing guilt alone. Win-win.)

Get it from Peloton for $2,245

Our Operations Manager Gina says: "It allows me to stay fit no matter how busy I am…I can exercise during my lunch hour or in between meetings if need be."


8. A backpack with a dedicated fleece-lined laptop compartment to keep all of your equipment protected and organized, whether you're traveling across the world or walking across the street to your favorite cafe.

Get this one from North Face for $73.99

Our Director of Customer Success Cristina says: "Love it for packing my laptop and tech items as it has tons of pockets Including fleece lined ones for tech."


9. Bluetooth headphones with immersive sound so you'll never miss a word your boss says.

Get these Bose SoundLink On-Ear Bluetooth Headphones with Microphone on Amazon for $159

Our Director of Business Development Amanda says: "I can get up and move around the house while I'm on calls."


10. A battery case for your phone so you can work wherever you want, without running out of juice.

Get it on Amazon for $108.99

Our Production Lead Rob says: "When traveling, I have to have my iPhone charging case."


11. A speaker to listen to your favorite music/podcasts when the sound of silence is just too much.

Get the Sonos Play:1 from Google Express for 149.99

Our Production Lead Rob says: "Working from home can get lonely sometimes so I love to play WNYC or podcasts when I feel like I need some company. I'm also a big vinyl collector and I have a turntable that can play wirelessly to a Sonos so even though my record player is in my living room, I can listen to it in my office."


12. An adjustable laptop stand that your wrists and your wallet (it's definitely cheaper than carpel tunnel surgery in the U.S.) will thank you for. Plus, this one doubles as a standing desk.

Get it on Amazon for $59.99

Our Customer Success Manager Lola says: "I'm using a box right now, but you definitely need something to elevate your computer."


13. A mate gourd and yerba mate, a.k.a the perfect workmates. Get the jolt you need without the jitters and gain your South American friends' approval at the same time.

Get the gourd and bombilla (straw) on Amazon for $23.99 And the Yerba for $13.95 (or make a trip to Argentina and buy it for $2)

Our DevOps Lead Emiliano says: "Very Argentinean, but definitely something that cannot be missing from my desk."


14. A foot massager to reward yourself for a job well done. Who says your home office can't double as a home spa? Work hard, relax hard.

Buy it on Amazon for $59.98

Our Product Designer Jedidah says: "Sitting in one spot can get strenuous on muscles in my leg, but with my foot massager I get to improve blood flow in that area, and enjoy a great foot massage which eases stress."

My coworker Anastasia said it best:

I love that working from home you get to take charge of your surroundings - I'm never cold like I am in offices (the male vs. female divide there ha). And I like me some good ambiance which is obviously subjective too so I appreciate being able to control it alllll myself.

So take charge of your surroundings and make 2019 your most productive - and comfortable - year yet!
