It seems as though more and more professionals are working remotely, including teachers, engineers, recruiters, sales representatives, editors, nurses and others from a wide range of sometimes unexpected fields. But where are they scoring these work-from-home or work-anywhere gigs?

It turns out there are a lot of companies — new and established — that offer remote-friendly positions, where employees have “100% remote work,” “partial remote work” or the  “option for remote work.” A report by job search site FlexJobs, published in January 2019, sifted through data for more than 51,000 companies in FlexJobs’ database to find the companies with the most listings that are remote-friendly.

“One of the most interesting things about the 100 companies offering the most remote jobs is just how many well-known, established, traditional sorts of companies and organizations make the list,” Brie Reynolds, senior career specialist at FlexJobs, told Ladders. “Seeing these companies like Hilton, Williams-Sonoma, Intuit, Dell, Salesforce, and Humana continue to support remote work and grow their remote teams is exciting. It signals that remote work is a viable business strategy with benefits for both companies and workers.”

This is FlexJobs’s sixth annual report on top companies with remote jobs. Some of the newbies to the list include Cisco, Abbott, and Sanofi.

Late last year, FlexJobs also checked out which fields saw rapid growth in remote jobs in 2018. Some of those fields included math and economics, insurance, and nonprofit and philanthropy.

The fields with the most remote jobs are computer and IT, medical and health,  and sales, among others.

But no matter what field you occupy, chances are there’s a remote opportunity for you if you look in the right place. Here are the top 100 companies for remote-friendly listings during 2018, according to FlexJobs:
