20 Work at Home Jobs Paying $20 An Hour or MORE

Do you want to work at home making a great deal more than minimum wage? If so, this post should get your wheels turning. I have created a list of several companies that pay their workers $20 an hour or more to work at home.

It goes without saying, but when you're talking about this kind of pay, you are often talking about companies that are more likely to require a very specific skill set or a college degree.

It's not as common to find a work at home job that pays in this range where you need no prior skills or experience to start.

And if you don't have the right skills or experience to do the jobs listed below, keep in mind that at least now you know where the money is!

So if you're thinking of furthering your education in order to get higher-paying work, you know what industries to possibly focus on.

So with that said, let's get on to the opportunities! As always, I cannot guarantee these companies are hiring right now, but if they are on the list, they have hired home-based workers in the past and paid $20 an hour or more.

21 – Bonus Tip – Check FlexJobs For Even More Higher-Paying Remote Jobs

FlexJobs is one of my favorite sites to use for finding remote jobs and learning about new companies that hire remotely. Most of what I see there when I check the listings pays well above minimum wage!

The great thing about FlexJobs is that they guarantee ALL listings are scam-free. They list hundreds of jobs — all of which are either remote or flexible in nature — five days per week. There are also no ads on the site.

Because there are no ads, they do charge a membership fee since that is the only way they can see a return on their job-searching efforts.

But it's cheap — you can sign up for for just a few dollars and get access for a few weeks to see the listings and figure out if it's for you.

If you sign up and don't like it, it's very easy to cancel right away so you are not billed again for the following month.

Go here to check out FlexJobs.

  1. Hi,
    I am looking to retire from a 21 year career in law enforcement, mainly as a criminal investigator and will need to find a work at home type job.. I would like to have a full time position that would allow me to work remotely from my home, located in the east Texas area. I do not have a college degree, but I do have a variety of experience provided by my lengthy career in law enforcement.

    Are there any ideas of jobs that would be suitable? The jobs do not need to be law enforcement related.


  2. I promote a number of work at home jobs or assignments that I believe can generate some good incomes. But you must do your diligence to visit each of the websites and read up their offers, to be convinced they are worth the investment. Though there are millions of scams on the internet, there are still a few genuine ones. Sometimes, one may need to take necessary risks.

  7. I currently work at home as a remote guru for Shopify. They hire remote gurus in Canada (BC, Ontario, New Brunswick and Quebec) and also Galway, Ireland. Starting salary is about $19.25 per hour.


  8. I have applied for at least 3-4 of these and they require experience as well. I have a masters degree in HR and have took IT classes but couldn’t get past the application. I have been 0 for 4 because my experience is in telecommunications (something I am trying to get away from because of the policies). If anyone has tips let me know. It is heartbreaking to go to school and get ‘typecast’ into a job.
