Remote jobs aren’t just for entry-level or mid-level employees. Those who have years of experience in their career field and who’ve worked their way up the ladder can find work-from-home jobs in a variety of professional industries.

As an executive-level professional, you’ve probably honed the ability to work well independently, communicate proactively, and display top-notch organizational skills—all markers of a great remote worker. Below we’re highlighting a handful of executive-level jobs for remote workers.

About the Jobs on This List

The jobs below were all actively being hired for as of March 25, 2019, and are director-level and above. They all offer some type of remote work arrangement, ranging from partial remote work to 100% remote. We’ve also included salary information, either from the job listing itself if it was included, or from the median salary estimate from PayScale, which may slightly differ depending on your location.

Some common executive-level remote job titles include director, executive director, vice president, medical director, and various C-level jobs such as COO, CFO, and CEO.

These jobs challenge the misconception that work-from-home jobs are only lower-level jobs, or for people at entry-level or mid-level positions in their careers. The truth is that the average remote worker is 46 years of age or older, has at least a bachelor’s degree, and earns a higher median salary than an in-office worker.
