If you’ve been on the fence about work-from-home opportunities, you might want to take the leap now. Telecommuting jobs have evolved into well-paying employment opportunities, often including benefits. And top-ranked companies around the world have jumped on the trend by expanding the number of work-from-home positions they offer. In fact, as of June 2017, 40 percent more U.S. companies offer flexible workplace options than they did in 2012.

The team over at Flexjobs has put together a list of popular companies that are hiring flexible/remote workers right now. To create this list, they used job postings on their site and LinkedIn’s “Top Companies 2017: Where the World Wants to Work Now” list of the top 50 most attractive companies.
