The emergence of Covid-19 has sparked the interest of many researchers in the effects of remote work on job satisfaction and employee well-being. However, studies introducing the personality variable as a factor to be taken into account in the job satisfaction and wellbeing of remote employees are scarce. The aim of the present study was to determine the relationship between job satisfaction of remote workers and their levels of anxiety, depression and personality extroversion trait, as well as to determine the differences in these variables as a function of sociodemographic variables such as age, gender, marital status, way of living and time worked remotely. Thus, with a sample of 275 participants aged between 23 and 46 years, obtained from different social networks, and through a cross-sectional quantitative study, it was found that there is a relationship between job satisfaction and levels of anxiety, extraversion and depression. In addition, statistically significant differences were obtained between the modality of remote, face-to-face or partial work and the study variables of job satisfaction, anxiety, depression and extroversion, with high levels of anxiety and depression being related to remote workers and extroverted employees. Finally, a model has been obtained suggesting that anxiety, depression and remote work is a good predictor of low job satisfaction, and that extroversion and partial remote work is a good predictor of high job satisfaction.
