5 Remote Jobs That Come With a Hiring Bonus

fizkes /

What’s better than being able to work from home and kill the time and cost associated with commuting? How about this: getting paid just to accept a remote job.

As part of their recruiting efforts, some companies offer “sign-on” or “signing” bonuses for the people they hire. This money is awarded for accepting the job offer. Depending on the company, it might be paid all up front or, in some cases, spread out over time alongside your paycheck.

Many such jobs are also fully remote or hybrid work-from-home — meaning they allow you to work from home part, but not all, of the time.

Following are some recent examples of remote or hybrid jobs with sign-on bonuses.
