Non-Technical Remote Jobs Available Now! [Jobs Updated on: 6/26/2020]

Because you don't need to be a "tech person" to work at a tech company.

[This article was first written on April 24th, 2020 and was updated on June 26th, 2020.]

People in all industries and fields have felt the impact of the Coronavirus pandemic, but it's no secret that some fields have been hit harder than others. The information technology sector stands to fare relatively well, as their products continue to be in high (or even higher than usual) demand during lockdown – just consider Zoom and Netflix.


So what should this mean for you if you're on the job market? Tech companies are an ideal place to look for roles — and by necessity, these companies are hiring remotely and offering unprecedented amounts of flexibility. While some companies may be looking to make remote hires who would later transition to in-office staff, it's unlikely that they'll rescind work-from-home flexibility all together.

The best part? Software engineers aren't the only ones that can benefit from tech companies hiring remotely. You can work in tech without being highly technical. (Though if you are an engineer, we've got hundreds of open remote roles for you to check out!)

So if you're on the job market, consider the open remote roles listed below with tech companies that are still hiring! We've created four clusters of opportunity for you to consider depending upon your skillset and expertise:

MARKETING, PRODUCT, & USER EXPERIENCE

If you enjoy working cross-functionally, and are equal parts creative and analytical, one of these roles might be perfect for you:

OPERATIONS, FINANCE, & LEGAL

Calling all accountants, lawyers, and logistics gurus! The great thing about these roles is that if you have expertise in logistics, finance/accounting, or law, you'll be set up for success, no matter what sector you're working in.

PROGRAM/PROJECT MANAGEMENT

If you're an analytical and detail-oriented task manager with a passion for delivering results on time and under budget, one of these roles might be perfect for you! (P.S. If you're confused about how these roles differ from product management, you can learn more about the difference between project and product management here.)

SALES AND SUPPORT

Love working with clients and talking to people? One of these customer-facing roles in sales or support might be your ideal role:

Kate Jhaveri does one thing every day that she suggests you try: belly laughs.

The EVP and Chief Marketing Officer at the NBA credits her two kids with much of that levity—"They're very silly and they, at least once a day, make me laugh out loud," she says—though she seeks to make those lighter connections with her team at work, too.
