California: Remote Job Openings Record

According to Coresignal’s recent survey, California ranks first for remote job openings. 

As COVID restrictions are lifted, most companies are trying to call back employees in the office. However, employees prefer hybrid arrangements and remote positions.  

For example, a Gallup study shows that most white-collar workers prefer the flexibility of working from home. And three in 10 employees would change companies without remote or hybrid options. 

Responding to this double trend, CEOs worldwide keep remote and hybrid arrangements also for new positions. And California ranks first for remote job openings. 

Coresignal researchers surveyed over 40 million job openings across North America and Europe between 2020 to 2022. Following convenient incentives, numerous big tech firms have relocated their headquarters to southern states to cut costs. 

As a result, remote job openings have become more prevalent in different states. Following California, Texas secures the second spot. While Californian remote jobs decreased 5% from 2020 to 2022, Texas is keeping high records. 

Here is the complete list of the top 10 states with the highest share of remote positions:

  1. California
  2. Texas
  3. New York
  4. New Jersey
  5. Florida
  6. Illinois
  7. North Carolina
  8. Arizona
  9. Colorado
  10. Washington

Even with fewer restrictions, remote job openings remain a popular trend among employers and employees alike. While people want better work-life balance, companies can retain their talent and offer competitive contracts.
