Hello again! My name is Hannah and I’m the founder of Chronically Capable, a platform that connects chronically ill and individuals with disabilities to flexible work opportunities. I started this business because I, like many of you, suffer from chronic illness, and I know how hard it can be to find employers who will understand and accept your needs.

They say April showers bring May flowers! I hope to bring some flowers (aka JOBS!) into your life with this month’s remote job list. We’ve been living in unnerving times, but the world keeps moving. I’ve put together some resources to keep you moving along with it. I’m working tirelessly to bring more opportunities for our community so that we can find meaningful work opportunities that can be done from your home, on a schedule that’s convenient for your unique needs.

On that note, I’d love to share seven available remote work opportunities available this May. We also know accuracy is important as we navigate the financial uncertainty due to the COVID-19 pandemic. So, all of the jobs shared here from Chronically Capable are verified and ready to hire. For the other listings, we’ve double-checked their availability, and based on each company’s website, they’re still hiring.
