What are the odds?

I suppose i am one of those dinosaurs 
Even though, I decided to give it a try
I am an experienced cobol programmer (cics and batch) with 25 years of experience 
I have a knowledge of VSE and recently dived into zOS
Is there still a chance for a job?
And if I may be greedy, can it be remote?

Yes though not likely at a big tech unless it's one of the cloud companies. Cloud company would love your experience to push mainframe migraine (Google, AWS, IBM)... But otherwise there will be a lot of traditional enterprise and big bank ops still open for you when the COBOL+zSeries premium kicker...
