In the future, jobs will look a lot different than they do now.

We’ll all participate in the gig economy (side gigs on side gigs) and robots will reign supreme (sort of, not really, just kidding, don’t freak out).

But until we as a society can finally manage to quit the commute and ditch the cubicle, only a select few of us will have the (as of now) still-exclusive opportunity to work from home.

But in order to actually work from home, you first have to find a good work-from-home job — and that’s where we come in.

Today, we’ve found four awesome work-from-home opportunities to kick-start your job hunt — so you can achieve your dreams of wearing pajamas to the office (which in this case happens to be your couch).
