Maybe it’s because of the snarled commute over the State Route 520 bridge, but more people work remotely in Bellevue than in any other city in Washington.

At 8.2 percent, Bellevue’s remote worker population — those who work at least half of the time from home — is slightly above Seattle’s 7.6 percent and Renton’s 5.7 percent, according to Flexjobs, which analyzes the remote job market. Washington’s overall remote worker population is 5.9 percent, which is almost double the U.S. average.

Organizations that have a higher percentage of remote workers in the state include Amazon Inc., senior referral living service A Place for Mom and the state of Washington.

The city with the lowest number of remote workers, among the 12 largest cities surveyed, is Everett — at 2.7 percent.
