Data Scientists Rejoice: The Remote Work Revolution is Here!

In a recent snapshot of the remote work landscape, data scientists have emerged as the top earners, bringing in an impressive average salary of around $132,000. Hot on their heels are business analysts with an average of $100,000, and project managers who average $88,000 annually. This data comes from a comprehensive analysis conducted by Greenback Expat Tax Services, which delved into nearly 6,800 job listings from around the globe.

Growing Desire to Ditch the Cubicle

Greenback also surveyed about 1,000 Americans keen on becoming digital nomads. A significant portion, more than a third, expressed dissatisfaction with traditional office life and commutes. In fact, two out of every five respondents are gearing up to hit the road within the next year. This growing interest in remote work comes amidst increasing difficulty in securing high-paying administrative roles in the U.S., despite overall low unemployment rates.

Eyeing Opportunities Abroad

Over half of the respondents are contemplating leaving the U.S. altogether. Generation Z workers are particularly adventurous, with six in ten considering expatriate life. For those contemplating the move, a comfortable remote job salary is pegged at around $72,000. Interestingly, while the U.S. offers the highest average salaries for remote data scientists at $143,000, other countries like France ($90,000) and Australia ($79,000) also present attractive opportunities.

Top Destinations for Remote Work

For Americans looking to stamp their passports, Italy, Canada, and the United Kingdom top the list of desirable destinations with a significant number of remote job opportunities. The most sought-after remote roles include content creation and freelance writing, followed closely by virtual assistant and teaching positions.

Unsurprisingly, the motivations for remote work are varied but compelling. Seven in ten cite the ability to work from anywhere as their primary reason, while nearly six in ten value greater flexibility. Just over half want to travel or seek adventure, and another 50% aim for a better work-life balance. However, only about one in four respondents plan to work remotely indefinitely.

The Personal Touch of Virtual Offices

For some, the flexibility of remote work is not just a perk but a necessity. Erik Braund, founder and CEO of Katmai, has embraced this lifestyle since 2020. Despite being based in the U.S., he collaborates seamlessly with a colleague in the Netherlands through virtual office technology. “I missed the first two years of my first child’s life.
