If you want to work for a brand-name employer, but you also want to do your job while wearing pajamas, you’re in luck. There are several big-deal companies currently hiring for work-from-home jobs, according to job listing site FlexJobs.

FlexJobs recently compiled a list of work-from-home jobs posted in their database by employers like Amazon and Dell. If you’re in the market for a telecommuting job, one of these might be the perfect fit:

1. Amazon

The ecommerce giant added 110,000 employees last year, bringing their worldwide total up to 341,000 workers. Some of those lucky workers even get to work at home. And yeah, some of those jobs are in customer service, and not highly paid (for example, the 5,000 home-based workers the company added in April 2017).

But not all of them. FlexJobs has a listing for a Solutions Architect at Amazon — a job title that typically commands a median annual salary of six figures, according to PayScale data.

2. Dell

A Dell spokesperson tells FlexJobs that the company is adding 8,000 workers around the world, and that “many of these positions offer flexible working environments, and over 800 of them are dedicated remote positions.” Recently, the company sought remote workers for Systems Engineer and Account Executive roles, among other positions.

3. Humana

Health insurance company Humana frequently offers 100 percent telecommuting jobs, including recent listings for a Commercial Medical Director and a National Guard and Reserve Representative. The company was named a 2017 Military Friendly Military Spouse Employer by Military Friendly.
