The Seven Fastest-Growing Remote Career Fields

FlexJobs shared a new survey where they identified the most promising remote career opportunities in 2024.

Demand for remote and hybrid work continues to rise. Most people (51%) favor a fully remote job.

They analyzed more than 50 career categories and found the seven fast-growing fields for fully remote jobs.

FlexJobs compared the total number of job postings for 100% remote jobs between January and December 2023. They found the emerging remote career categories with 10% or more growth over the past year. 

These are the job categories ranked from highest to lowest career growth.

  • Sales 
  • Account Management 
  • Client Services 
  • Business Development 
  • Bilingual 
  • Health 
  • Education 

Of the top seven career categories, sales saw the highest growth rate (48%) in the last year.

Account management, client services, business development, and bilingual closely followed. Each category grew upward of 15% in the number of remote job postings.

Health and education rounded out the list, scaling by 13% and 10%, respectively.

The ranking excludes top career categories that routinely dominate the remote job marketplace.

This includes IT, accounting and finance, marketing, customer service, and project management.
