10 Work-From-Home Jobs Paying as Much or a Lot More Than the Average Tanzanian Salary

Written by on August 13, 2018

There was a time when working from home was a pipe dream. Thanks to technology like Slack, there’s been a surge of legit jobs you can do from home.

Whether that’s working remotely for a company or starting your own business there’s no shortage of work-at-home opportunities.

By working from home full-time and conducting all my meetings through video conference software, remote week helps me develop empathy for my remote colleagues and teaches me how to more effectively collaborate with my co-workers who live halfway across the world.

Today marks the last day of remote week, and, to be frank, I’m kind of sad. I thoroughly enjoyed getting an extra hour of sleep everyday, working comfortably in my pajamas, and rocking out to John Mayer — with no headphones on. It was pretty liberating.

If you feel the same way about working from home and you’re currently looking for a job, you should know that landing a fully remote job is more possible than ever nowadays.

Most companies embrace remote work: 34% of remote employees work 4-5 days a week out of the office. And since remote workers are usually more engaged and efficient than office workers, employers will support working from home even more in the future.

I’m a huge proponent of working from home, so I want to help you find the companies and jobs that allow you to enjoy a fully remote lifestyle.

Read on to find your next remote job.

Common Work From Home Jobs

Becoming a remote worker doesn’t mean you have to pigeonhole yourself in a specific role. We work in the age of the internet. Your job just has to be fully digital. When looking for a remote job, sift through sites that only list remote jobs, like We Work Remotely or Remote.co. Featured below are some common remote roles you can find on the two websites:

  • Accounting
  • Consulting
  • Customer Service
  • Customer Support
  • Copywriting
  • Data Science
  • Design
  • DevOps
  • Editing
  • Healthcare
  • IT
  • Marketing
  • Project Management
  • Podcaster
  • Quality Analyst (QA)
  • Recruiting & HR
  • Sales
  • Software Development
  • Teacher/Tutor
  • Transcription
  • Virtual Assistant
  • Writing

Freelancing is also a common role for remote workers. But before you start your own venture, you must be realistic with yourself. How will you be able to make a living? And where will you find work? Answer the following questions to help you figure if freelancing is a feasible lifestyle:

  • What am I good at?
  • What do I like to do?
  • Is there a need for my skill?
  • Can I do this job online?

Once you know how you’ll be able to make money, you can enter the gig economy by marketing and selling your services on your own, or finding work on a freelance service marketplace like Upwork or Fiverr.

Here are 10 work from home jobs that most make above the average Tanzanian salary.
