FlexJobs said that the increase in senior-level positions it noticed in 2020 is continuing into 2021, making remote managerial positions more possible than ever before.
Senior-level job seekers take note: FlexJobs has released a list of 20 senior-level positions that it said are fully remote, can be done anywhere, list a salary of at least $100,000 and are full time.
Since the COVID-19 pandemic began over a year ago, countless jobs have been forced to go remote, and it's predicted that many, both in and out of the tech industry, will end up staying that way once coronavirus fears have passed.
The embrace of permanent remote work in 2020 and beyond isn't just for entry and midlevel professionals either. When reviewing its job posting data from 2020, FlexJobs noticed a 22% increase in the number of senior-level remote positions compared to 2019. The trend has continued this year, with senior-level jobs increasing by an additional 6%.
