What are the best math-related careers which can be done remotely?

I don't really want to relocate for my job because I want to stay close to family. However, I feel like that there would be more job opportunities outside of Kansas.

Jessica’s Answer

Hi Genevieve,
I agree with Ajay, tech could be a good route. Math can lend itself to programming, data analysis, actuarial science, economist, research or statistics. All of these roles could be remote, it just depends on if the company has a remote working culture.
Good luck!
Jessica

Hi Genevieve, I agree with Ajay and Jessica. I too wanted to originally pursue math related fields and am interested in remote work. Programming or data science are both very flexible fields in terms of remote work and utilize math frequently. A different remote job I even used to have was being a math tutor! I worked for a local company and would tutor students every day for a few hours and even more in the summer. It is a great option to teach younger kids from your own home.
Thank you comment icon Cool! I haven't considered tutoring before. That's what my dad did when he was earning his master's. Thanks!! Genevieve

Ajay’s Answer

Most jobs within the tech industry have now been made hybrid or remote, so if you are interested in writing software or product management, etc. that might be a potential way to go. The only thing is that companies do tend to prefer candidates who can at least work hybrid if not in person in the near future, so you will have to be sharp with your technical skills and impress to put yourself over another candidate who will be working locally for said company.
Thank you comment icon Cool! Thanks for the advice! Genevieve

It really depends on what you find interesting and captivating in this ever growing hybrid world really any job in the tech industry as long as it doesn't require certain levels of clearance can be done remotely. During my Undergrad I dual major in math and CS. I found with that background computer science came very easy to me and might be a direction you may want to follow. Although I think regular schooling is better many people are able to land positions in computer science using Coding Bootcamps. If you really want to use heavy math I would recommend data-science. It is a very fast growing industry and can be done pretty much anywhere you want.
