As the type of job that you are looking for is not as common, it is important for your to be very flexible. If this is truly the type of job you desire, you may have to go to where these jobs are more prevalent. I first recommend going on line and researching the areas of the US with the most job growth. These will typically be where you will find more flexible work arrangements. The technical job sector tends to be more open to these types of work arrangements.
Next you have to find a place to locate the jobs. There are a few web sites focused on flexible and part time jobs - flexjobs.com being one of them. You can also go to job board aggregator sites such as indeed.com and search on terms such as part-time or flexible, etc. Bottom line, for a more flexible job, you may have to be more flexible.
