With technology that allows us to effectively communicate from anywhere — bed and Bermuda included — the definition of work no longer involves monotonous watercooler chitchat or the need to be strapped to an office chair for 40-plus hours a week. And it’s thanks to technology and this shift in how we think of work that has allowed people to break free from the confines of limited time off to take their job on the road (or to the beach).

This migration out of the office is top of mind with National Work At Home Week, the U.K.’s National Work Life Week, and FlexJobs’ National Flex Day all falling in the month of October. And for those who’ve gotten a taste for the freedom that comes with working from home and want more, LinkedIn reports that this is the month to make it happen — with October being the month with the most new job listings on the site.

Your chances of finding a gig that includes some sort of work from home flexibility might be better than you think. Data from LinkedIn found that 70 percent of hiring managers’ companies offer some sort of remote work — with 34 percent offering full-time work from home opportunities.

To get you started on your quest for more flexibility and the ability to take your job on the road and travel the world, the team at LinkedIn has pulled some of their best and newest work from home jobs — and they’re all available right now.
