Remote job opportunities might be dwindling, but there are dozens of side hustles you can do to earn some extra cash without leaving the comfort of your home — some of which can pay as much as $100 an hour.
FlexJobs, one of the most popular platforms to find remote and hybrid work opportunities, saw a 28% increase in the number of remote, part-time job listings on its side in the last 12 months, Kathy Gardner, the vice president of communications at FlexJobs, tells CNBC Make It.
FlexJobs has identified 25 in-demand side hustles that can be done from home, based on listings from more than 58,000 companies on its platform posted between January and March 2023. These jobs have dozens of active listings and offer remote, part-time opportunities.
While the total number of hours varies from role to role, most of the jobs on FlexJobs’ list ask for a commitment of 10-20 hours per week, Gardner says.
Here are 10 in-demand side hustles that can be done from home, and how much they pay, according to FlexJobs, with salary estimates from Payscale:
- Writer ($29 per hour)
- Project manager ($37 per hour)
- Interpreter ($21 per hour)
- Editor ($27 per hour)

The widespread adoption of remote working has created more opportunities for people to find flexible, online side hustles in industries beyond tech, including finance, government and health care.
