These roles were selected based on a minimum salary of $75,000 (₹62 lakh) and the requirement that at least 10% of job listings mentioned the potential for remote or hybrid work.

According to a 2023 Bankrate survey of 2,000 employed people in the US, there remains a significant desire for flexible work arrangements. 64% expressed a preference for working full-time remotely rather than being fully present in the workplace.
