Thanks to the internet, companies can now offer online jobs to workers outside of their city, state, and even country.
This means that you no longer have to commute long distances through traffic, work the typical 9-5 hours, and leave your home, family and/or kids during the week.
Companies benefit by cutting overhead from things like office space, supplies, and phone lines.
However, what companies have to gain from offering online jobs is not our focus.
Instead, we’re going to first discuss the benefits of working from home, then share 60 work from home online jobs that are flexible, and pay well.
So what are the benefits of working from home as an employee?
- Zero commute means you can jump right into work without spending unpaid hours commuting to work.
- Online jobs offer the ability to manage your own time and schedule. For example, what if you have personal obligations at 2 pm on a Monday? You most likely will be able to attend to it as long as you just get your work done.
- The ability to maximize your income by working multiple online jobs, or freelancing on the side of your online job.
- You are no longer obligated to pick a career and stick to it for the rest of your life. Working online offers you the ability to try different things and figure out what you really want to do while still making money.
Sounds great, right?
Without further ado, let’s get into the list!

Teaching Online Jobs
Do you like to travel and/or work from your laptop in your pajamas at home? If you said, “yes” and “yes”, then online teaching may be for you.
Teaching online is a fast-growing job as the need for international teachers increases. For example, there’s a large demand for English teachers in countries like China since the world conducts much of its business in English.
You’ll also find ample opportunities for teaching other languages and subjects online like Spanish, math, and sciences.
Finding online jobs as a teacher can be a bit of a headache. You’ll most likely find yourself sifting through job boards where the majority of jobs are location-based teaching jobs.
