Default Saudi job, living in Dubai, working remotely

Hi
I've had a job offer For an entity in Saudi. The pay is much better and I want to take it. The job can be completed entirely remotely and I want to continue living in Dubai.
How can I get a visa to support this? I read that there is a new visa for remote workers coming into effect but I don’t think it has launched yet and the article I read says that you can only do this for less than a year.
My alternative is getting a Freelance visa and issuing invoices to the Saudi company, but this might be more hassle. Otherwise, am I eligible to stay on a tourist visa? I’m not working for a UAE company.
Any advice much appreciated!

Tourist visa is a no-no in this situation.

Not sure if entirely relevant but there's Arabian Enterprise Incubators who walk you through the KSA set up process. Set up by a Brit - headquartered in Riyadh DQ. They offer a whole range of services in establishing/visas etc
