The next company to hop on board with this is health insurance company Cigna.

The Northeastern-based agency is looking for over 100 positions that can be performed remotely, with positions ranging in specialties across the board.

Though some of the new positions require a medical background, such as RN Nurse Case Manager and Chronic Care Physician, the majority of the positions range in specialties and requirements, such as Informatics Specialist and Account Manager.

Better yet, the remote positions still offer all of the in-office benefits a regular full-time job would offer for the company, such as 401(k) matching, medical benefits and even career coaching.

So if you're still on that 9-5 grind but you're ready for something that allows you more flexibility so you can, you know, work in your pajamas a couple of days a week, you might want to take a look at the Cigna job board.
