The number of remote and hybrid jobs increased 20% last year, continuing a pandemic-led trend that saw remote jobs jump 12% in 2021, according to a new report by online job site FlexJobs.

While the rise in remote and hybrid jobs over the past two years isn’t surprising — the arrival of COVID-19 forced many companies to embrace workplace flexibility — the percent of remote or hybrid roles for manager- and senior-level positions is noteworthy.

A majority of remote and hybrid positions on FlexJob’s website were for experienced-level jobs (62%), while manager and senior-level roles claimed 32% of the remote job listings. The remaining 6% of postings involved entry-level positions.

FlexJob defines a “remote job” as a professional-level position that allows the employee to work entirely from home or part of the time in a hybrid arrangement. Most commonly, remote is defined as working from home 100% of the time.

Leading all other industries in the company’s remote work category was the Computer and IT industry, followed by the Marketing industry. Accounting and Finance was in the third spot for most remote work.
