31 Remote Jobs Available Now in Sales, Marketing, and Engineering

Why You Should Consider These 3 Functional Areas When Looking for Work-From-Home-Jobs

If you're wondering what kinds of remote jobs are available now, you're not alone. With unemployment rates skyrocketing and questions about when—and if—"non-essential" workers will return to the office growing by the day, it's safe to say there's a lot of uncertainty about the future of work.


Looking for remote or flexible jobs is one way to quell that uncertainty—but which remote jobs are most in-demand?

Below we've highlighted three functional areas — sales, marketing, and engineering — that will continue having open roles that can be done remotely.

Even as sectors like leisure and hospitality shrink, hiring in the information technology sector has remained relatively stable. Sales, engineering, and marketing are all essential functions at IT companies and offer opportunities for professionals from a variety of backgrounds (i.e., if you're a writer, you might consider roles in marketing; if you're a fitness trainer or coach, you might do well in sales) to find roles that suit their interests and skillset.

Sales

Although a career in sales no doubt gets tougher during a slowdown, sales as a function has become all the more essential as businesses look to pivot strategies and maintain revenue streams amidst the current crisis.

Even if you lack prior experience in sales, you can get a foot in the door by applying to entry-level positions in business development, searching for new leads for account executives.

Business development representatives and account executives searching for new leads aren't the only important sales-related roles that need to be filled. Customer success managers and renewal managers have an even more important role to play during a recession as acquiring new business becomes more difficult, and demonstrating value to existing customers to secure renewals and minimize churn becomes essential.

Consider a career pivot to sales if: you're a goal-oriented go-getter with excellent listening skills who loves strategizing, meeting new people, and isn't afraid of the word "no."

Engineering

Developers have always had a leg up in the remote job market, and that has become especially true now, as many of the companies that are still hiring during COVID are tech companies that provide the very tools and services we're all relying on to conduct business (not to mention our personal lives—hello, Zoom family dance parties). And engineers are essential to making these products a reality.

Consider a career pivot to engineering if: you love technical problem solving and have some coding expertise. If you have an academic background in data science, pursuing a corporate job in engineering may be a more natural transition than you think!

There are hundreds of remote/flexible jobs for engineers on PowerToFly, but some of the newest include:

- Principal Software Engineer, DigitalOcean

- Lead Software Engineer, New Relic

- Full Stack Engineer, Sentropy Technologies

- Principal Software Engineer, Dell

- Developer Solutions Engineer, Okta

- Full Stack Developer, Contrast Security

- Front-end React.js Engineer, Pluralsight

Marketing & Product Management

Once the engineers have built a product, who's going to sell it? Sales, right? But in case you haven't already heard the classic, "Everyone is in sales," now you know — marketers are salespeople too.

In recent years, marketing has moved out of the shadow of sales and instead of being viewed simply as an internal support department, it's now seen as having a strategic function of its own. Much like sales, marketing departments must now find creative ways to maintain old revenue streams and secure new ones.

Consider a career pivot to marketing if: You're a creative problem solver who loves big-picture thinking and analysis. Top notch analytical skills and communication skills are required to really thrive in marketing, but there's plenty of opportunities to find your niche within the broader 'marketing' umbrella. Love writing? Consider content marketing. Obsessed with customers, user experience, and business strategy? Product management/marketing might be just your thing.

Open Roles:

- Head of Marketing, OctaneAI

How These Companies Are Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

According to a recent study, anti-Asian hate crimes have risen 150% since the pandemic started. But these acts of violence are not new — they are part of a much larger history of anti-Asian racism and violence in the U.S.

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.

What These Companies Are Doing to Celebrate Juneteenth 2021

*Updated on June 17th, 2021 to reflect Juneteenth officially being named a Federal Holiday in the U.S.*

Juneteenth has been celebrated by African-Americans since the late 1800s, but in recent years (particularly in response to global protests over police brutality and the deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, and other Black Americans), there has been a surge in interest in the day that celebrates freedom.

Before it became an official federal holiday, many businesses shifted toward marking June 19th as an annual company holiday, creating different initiatives around the holiday and offering employees opportunities to learn, reflect, and take action toward racial equality.
