51 High-Paying, Flexible Jobs

List Criteria: Careers where workers are able to telecommute or make their own schedules

List of the best high-paying flexible jobs: high-paying work-from-home jobs, telecommuting jobs, and careers with flexible hours and schedules that allow remote workers. "Part-time," "flexible," "remote" and "telecommute" jobs are the top jobs for work and family balance. Jobs where you can work mostly from home are becoming more and more common as email, video conferencing and phone calls are becoming the preferred method for communicating in the professional world. Mobile technology, cloud computing and shared, digital workspaces have made it easier to work from home than ever before.

Traditionally, the best flexible jobs have been high-level management jobs (where you can make your own schedule) or IT careers (where most of your work is done online, anyway). These industries still offer some of the best paying telecommuting jobs. In the past 5 years, even more industries have started to allow workers to work from home full-time or a few days a week. Many of the careers on this list still require office time, but the actual schedule of when you have to be in the office is flexible. Many project-based jobs, like Actuaries, Public Relations Specialists and Film Editors are able to create their own schedules and finish work on their own time. Sales managers are another great, high-paying job that is flexible.

Parents looking for great work-from-home jobs, adults looking to restore work-life balance, and professionals who desire the luxury of being able to finish work on their own time often search for these top paying work from home jobs. It makes sense: what's the definition of the perfect commute? From the kitchen table to the couch. Working from home, or telecommuting, is no longer the stuff of cubicle daydreams. As of 2011, an estimated 20 to 30 million people worked at home at least one day a week, and at least 2.8 million people worked primarily from home With improvements in networking technology and changes in corporate philosophy, the right career -- and income -- might be closer than you think. Many of these highest paying jobs with time off take a while to work up to and many others require advanced degrees or specialized training. However, there are some--like web developer, freelance writer, and regional sales managers are great jobs that don't require a college degree.
