It's no secret that the remote job market has exploded since 2020 — and even as more companies call employees back to the office, the pandemic-fueled desire for flexibility hasn't abated. 

To help people find the best remote opportunities, FlexJobs, a membership service for jobseekers, identified the top 100 companies hiring remote jobs in 2023, taking into account some 58,000 companies who listed their openings on the site between January and December 2022. 

FlexJobs saw a 20% increase in the number of remote job listings in 2022 over 2021 — up 8% from the year prior — with continued growth in marketing, accounting and finance, as well as HR and recruiting roles. About 62% of listings are for jobs at an intermediate or experienced level. 

"We're not seeing one industry dominate the remote job market like we used to," Kathy Gardner, the vice president of communications at FlexJobs, says. "Three years ago, your best bet to land a remote job was to apply to tech companies, but now, there's a much more healthy mix of industries offering flexible opportunities." 

Several major companies have consistently made the top 100 since FlexJobs first published their ranking in 2014. CVS Health, Elevance Health, Kelly, Parexel, SAP, Stride and UnitedHealth Group have all provided "unparalleled" job flexibility and promoted a healthy work-life balance to their employees, Gardner says.

New to the list this year are Airbnb, Reddit and Lyft, as well as other companies that have ditched plans to return to the office and announced permanent remote options for employees. 

"It's still a tight labor market, which means companies have to cater to what jobseekers want — and that's remote work," Gardner says. "But I also think a lot of companies who switched to remote work during the pandemic realized that it was a smart, long-term strategy for their business, allowing them to expand their talent pools, save money and make their employees happier."
