Yes, remote coding (some call it contract coding) is usually done from home. I've been working a full-time coding job, plus coding from home for over 3 years now. The way most work is you sign onto the company's data base, and everything you need to code each case is scanned into their system. Some companies pay hourly, some pay by the case. Since you are essentially self employed, there are usually no benefits, other than maybe
a 401-K plan option, and possibly health insurance.
Most companies require 3-5 years experience to even consider hiring someone to do coding from home.
If you are looking to apply, you can actually just use google or any search engine, and type in anything concerning coding from home...it will usually bring up the major companies to apply to.
Hope this helped!
