7 work-from-home jobs that pay over $100,000

More Americans are working from home than ever before, and the trend is radically transforming how workers make, spend and save their money.

According to a Gallup poll, more than 43 percent of employed Americans spend some time working remotely. This share is likely to increase over time in part because of the ways in which it can save workers and employers money. Remote job site FlexJobs estimates that working from home can save workers as much as $4,668, while Quartz calculates that telecommuters can save $2,524 a year.

Not only does working remotely help workers cut down on costs associated with things like transportation and food, but remote roles can also offer generous compensation. Remote work resource Remote.co recently analyzed online job postings and found that several positions offer six-figure salaries to employees who work from home.

Here are seven jobs that pay over $100,000 and can be done from the comfort of your own home:
