The freelance economy is an unstoppable machine. It has grown to include fifty five million Americans, representing 35 percent of the total U.S. workforce. And 77 percent of these freelancers said they were able to achieve better balance between career and personal lives. So how do you get to be one of these happy balanced people?FlexJobs has identified 15 companies that have had the highest volume of freelance job postings in its database since the beginning of 2017. 

The most common job categories for freelance jobs in the FlexJobs database include computer & IT, project management, accounting & finance, administrative and software development. “As this list of companies and jobs demonstrate, the industries that offer freelance gigs are growing in diversity, as are the type of positions that are compatible with freelance work,” said Sara Sutton Fell, Founder and CEO of FlexJobs. “Advancements in technology have bolstered opportunities for people to explore options outside of the traditional model of work and as the workplace continues to transform, those options will continue to grow. And while millennials have certainly pushed the freelancing movement forward, we’ve seen interest in this style of working from across all generations; the common thread among them is a desire for work flexibility,” Sutton Fell concluded.
