What is a “remote job”?

A “remote job” is a job that is performed outside of your typical office environment. Traditionally, when people attend work, they go into an office.

However, especially after the onset of covid-19, more and more jobs are allowing their employees to work from home or work remotely. This all started when employers required their employees to work from home because it wasn’t safe for them to be in close quarters in the office.

As more and more employers allowed their employees to work from home, many companies realized that their employees could work effectively from home, and that having them work in an office environment wasn’t necessary for the company to be successful. 

Oftentimes, people who work remotely work from the comfort of their own homes. They may work from an office in their home or even from their bed. Nowadays, there are “coworking spaces” that people can pay a fee to use in the event that they don’t only want to work from their homes.

Why do introverts desire remote jobs?

If you’re reading this article, I imagine you think you’re an introvert, and you’re looking for a remote job that pays well. 

According to WebMD, the terms “introvert” and “extrovert” were first coined by a psychologist named Carl Jung. “ These two personality types sort people into how they get or spend their energy. Introverts, Jung said, turn to their own minds to recharge, while extroverts seek out other people for their energy needs.”

Introverts vs. Extroverts: Which Are You?

Do you spend a lot of time in your own head? Is that where you feel most comfortable? Do you like time to yourself to recharge?

If yes, you may be an introvert and you may really benefit from having a remote job. Here are the 30 best remote jobs for introverts.

Best Remote Jobs For Introverts

1. Graphic Designer

A graphic designer uses visual elements, fonts, and layout techniques to convey a message effectively. Graphic designers use software and their artistic skills to create aesthetically pleasing designs that meet the needs of their clients or projects.

Graphic design is well-suited for remote work because it primarily relies on digital tools and software that can be accessed via computer. Designers can collaborate with clients and teams virtually, sharing files and feedback seamlessly. Once graphic designers understand the scope of their projects, they can work alone for long periods of time. 

2. Software Developer/Programmer

A software developer or a programmer (coder) creates programs using coding languages. Oftentimes, this work requires the coder to be “heads down” at their computers for long periods of time.

It’s a stereotype that people who code aren’t the most sociable, and while I have worked with plenty of very smart programmers who have great social skills, it truly is a great job for someone who is more introverted, too.

Software developers or programmers probably make the most money on average out of any other occupation on this list of best remote jobs for introverts. People with software development experience and knowledge are usually in high demand.

3. Content Writer / Copywriter

A content writer or copywriter is someone who uses their writing skills to write content or for a variety of mediums like websites, scripts, social media content and more.

Once content and copywriter’s understand the scope of their project, they are able to work individually to write the content.

Nowadays, many copywriters are using ChatGPT or some other Artificial Intelligence software on their computers to help them write even more efficiently.

4. Data Analyst

Data analysis is a great career path for introverts because it involves, simply put, analyzing data. Usually that data is stored in a database or on a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet, for example, and you need to sit and look through the data in order to pull out any helpful insights or information.

Data Analysts are often paid very well especially in the Tech industry. I was personally a data analyst for a few years and I was always very satisfied with my pay.

5. Data Scientist

A data scientist is another high-paying job.

A data scientist is a professional who combines expertise in statistics, mathematics, programming, and domain-specific knowledge to analyze and interpret complex data sets.

Oftentimes, you need a bachelor’s degree to learn the skills (and job opportunities) that a data scientist has, but you can certainly learn all about the job requirements of a data scientist online in places like YouTube.

If you like analyzing data, coding, and math, you should definitely look into becoming a data scientist.

6. Virtual Assistant 

For virtual assistants, the job title really says it all. The job is virtual – meaning that it is done from the computer and can be done from anywhere. And the person is an assistant meaning they can help whoever hires them with a variety of tasks.

This is a great job to pursue for someone who isn’t really sure what they want to do with their life career-wise and someone who wants to try on a bunch of different hats to see what kind of career is a good fit for them.

Virtual assistants can do all sorts of jobs. For example: creating social media content, managing an email marketing campaign, creating advertisements, cold calling, and much more.

7. Transcriptionist

A transcriptionist is someone who converts spoken words into written form. Transcriptionists can do their work from the comfort of their own home. Usually, as long as they have a computer and some head phones, they are good to go.

When people create online content, for example, they often want their videos to be transcribed so that they can use their spoken content for mediums that entail written words like social media captions or blog posts, but they don’t want to spend the time transcribing. That’s where a transcriptionist would come in.

But be warned, the more AI develops, the more certain programs are able to do the transcribing for you!

8. Online Tutor

An online tutor teaches virtually. This is a great job for someone that doesn’t mind working 1 on 1, and someone that loves to teach.

As long as you are comfortable speaking on a video call, this can be a great job for an introvert.

9. Freelance Photographer

A freelance photographer is someone who is hired to take pictures of events, people, places – anything really!

This is a great job for someone who loves to take pictures. As long as you are OK with speaking briefly to the person who hired you to understand the requirements of their project, you will spend a lot of time behind your camera taking the actual photos and then spend an equal (or more!) amount of time on your computer editing those photos.

10. Researcher

Researching takes a lot of time and you really need to understand why you are looking for certain information in the first place. That’s why being a Researcher is a really great job for someone who would rather keep their head down in books and surfing the internet.

11. SEO Specialist

An SEO specialist is someone who optimizes online content for search engines like Google or Yahoo. Focusing on keywords and analytics, an SEO specialist will help your website or content rank as high up on Google as possible.

An SEO Specialist needs a computer and a couple programs to do their job, making it a great job for an introvert who wants to work remote.

12. Technical Writer

A technical writer creates documentation, manuals, or guides for technical products or processes.

If you are someone who loves to teach people how to get from A to B, or are someone who is very process-oriented and loves to document how things are done, you’d be a great fit for a technical writer.

As long as you completely understand the process that you are writing about (which may take a few meetings with your stakeholders) then being a technical writer is a great gig.

13. E-commerce Manager

E-commerce is simply online shopping. If you are an e-commerce manager, you do things like overseeing online store operations, managing inventory, and analyzing sales data remotely.

If you have an interest in how to create successful online stores, you can do so from the comfort of your own home as an e-commerce manager.

14. Remote Customer Support

If you’re interested in a mostly-low-key job, checkout remote customer support or remote customer service. As a remote customer support person, you will receive phone calls or be pinged on your computer by people who could use your assistance. 

Providing customer assistance through email, chat, or ticketing systems can be done without constant in-person interactions, making this a great job for introverts.

15. Social Media Manager

A social media manager specializes in planning and implementing social media strategies for businesses remotely, focusing on content creation and engagement.

The great thing about being a social media manager is that all of your social media platforms are online. Whether you are publishing content for Instagram, ensuring that content is scheduled for your client’s TikTok, or developing new YouTube videos, all of these things that are required for social media managers can be done in the comfort of your home (or even in your bed!). 

16. Quality Assurance Tester

Oftentimes, quality assurance testers test software, websites, or applications for bugs and issues.

While this can be a difficult job, it is oftentimes done in a solo manner. As long as you can independently find issues and solve problems, you can be a very effective quality assurance tester.

I did QA (quality assurance, also called QC or “quality control”) for a while when I was a business analyst, and it’s a great job for people who like to make sure that programs and projects are working as designed.

17. Video Editor

The job of a video editor requires editing and producing video content remotely, often in collaboration with content creators or media companies.

As long as you are willing to work with a few other people and you have an interest in video editing, you could be a great video editor!

All you need is a camera and a computer and you can create some awesome videos for a decent profit.

18. App Developer

App developers create and update mobile applications.This can be a solo endeavor, particularly for freelancers or small development teams working remotely.

App developers are required to know coding languages like C# (C sharp), C++, or java. However, once you learn a coding language well, you are pretty much set. 

There are so many jobs out there that are looking for developers (coders) to help them bring their business vision or app idea to life.

19. Web Developer

Being a web developer is one of the best jobs. At the time of writing this post, I am a website designer and developer for a marketing company, and the amount of things I have learned in just a few months is pretty amazing.

Web developers help design and build websites for businesses or individuals to help their success when it comes to sales of their products or services.

These days, everyone needs a website that shows prospective buyers how credible they are, so the demand for this job never runs dry. I find web development to be very rewarding because it’s really cool to make someone a completely new and better website for their business. 

20. Virtual Bookkeeper

A virtual bookkeeper is a professional who manages the financial records and accounts of a business or individual remotely. 

Someone might want to hire a virtual bookkeeper because they are tired of tracking their income and expenses all by themselves, on top of all the other things that they do all day as business owners.

If you are well organized and good with numbers, being a virtual bookkeeper can be a great remote job for someone who is introverted.

21. Data Entry Specialist 

If you want very little face interaction in a remote job, you should check out data entry.

As a data entry specialist, your job is to input data into a program or system for organizations. As long as you are detail-oriented and you know how to type, you can qualify as a data entry specialist.

This type of work is great for someone who has social anxiety because you really do not need to communicate with anyone for a majority of the day as your focus will be on the data and the system you are inputting it into.

This job is also great for anyone who doesn’t have a lot of experience. As long as you can type and pay attention, becoming a data entry specialist can be a great opportunity.

22. Remote Project Manager

If you like to manage projects and you don’t mind communicating with people from work from time to time, you could be a great remote project manager.

As long as you know how to start a project, efficiently work with others to get it done, and make sure it gets done on-time without being a micromanaging manager (haha) you could be cut out for project management.

23. Remote Legal Consultant

A remote legal consultant is someone who provides legal advice and services remotely.

I actually recently used a remote legal consultant for something for my business and it was great. We communicated on the phone one or two times, and the rest of our communication happened via email.

Of course, you will need to have the proper education to become a remote legal consultant, but once you have that, this job is a great option for introverts.

24. Virtual Event Planner

If you are highly organized and passionate about event planning, you could be an awesome virtual event planner.

Event planners plan and organize events like conferences, parties, and webinars. If you have a love for big events like these but you’d rather organize it from the comfort of your own home, check out virtual event planning.

Another great thing about being a virtual event planner is that you can oftentimes create your own schedule because you’re coordinating with your clients about the best days to have events.

25. Online Course Creator

If you have a knack for creating courses online, why not become an online course creator.

Not only will corporations and businesses be willing to hire you for your training expertise, but you could even be hired by bloggers or influencers who want to build their own course but they’re not quite sure how.

26. Blogger

Want to be totally behind the scenes? Become a blogger! 

As a blogger for my website ImperfectTaylor.com, I write my blog posts whenever I have time and I am always working all by myself.

Blogging does have a bit of a learning curve at first, and it does require an immense amount of know-how, but once you get your system down, it isn’t too hard to figure out!

27. Remote Archivist

Interested in organizing and managing digital or physical archives for institutions or businesses? Do you like organization and reading? 

If yes, you should look into becoming a remote archivist. This is a great job for anyone who is curious and loves the library. 

28. Online Health and Wellness Coach

Do you like providing guidance and support for individuals seeking a healthier lifestyle? If yes, you should become an online coach!

Coaching can be hard for introverts, so if that’s not your style, you can totally skip this. However, if you don’t mind talking to a few clients at a time, becoming a health and wellness coach can be a great job.

29. Freelance Voiceover Artist

Do people tell you that you have a voice for radio? If yes, recording voiceovers for commercials, animations, audiobooks, and other projects could be a great job for you.

Use your voice to your advantage by becoming a freelance voiceover artist. You could do this job on a freelance basis (did someone say side hustle?!) 

30. Etsy Artist

Do you have a craft that you are really good at and you would like to sell? If yes, become a seller on Etsy!

This job doesn’t require much social interaction (unless you count replying to direct messages as social interaction!) and it’s the perfect job for someone who is talented and creative.
