Looking for a Remote Position? Here are the websites to focus on when searching for that perfect remote employment.
There are hundreds of job sites out there for everything under the sun (and a few up in space). I’ve spent far too many hours jumping from site to site without finding exactly what I’m looking to do. That changed when I started spending some time on the sites listed below. Sign-up, apply and find a new gig today. Just remember to move fast. Some of these jobs won’t last long:
Remotive.io is a newsletter on remote tips & jobs sent every two weeks to 20,000+ remote workers. They also regularly update a list of 200+ startups that are currently hiring remotely. They have a jobs board [free] and a Slack community [paid.]
We Work Remotely is the “best place to find and list jobs that aren’t restricted by commutes or a particular geographic area.” They have RSS feeds for each remote job listing category that you can use with your favorite RSS reader or IFTTT to send you an email if you don’t want to remember to visit the page every day.
Angel.co is the place to connect with startups around the world. They have both remote and in person positions so remember to have the “Remote” filter on when searching. You can use the site to apply to jobs privately. Only the companies you apply to will see you’re looking for a job. Salary and equity options in the company are displayed before you apply. There is also a useful startup salary tool. Angel.co is great too because there are no recruiters to deal with when applying. Your application goes straight to the startup’s founders.
RemoteOK has over 500,000 user visits each month searching for remote jobs listed from companies all over the globe. They also offer a daily/weekly/monthly email list featuring all of the new jobs added to the site. It can be a bit tricky to navigate, but the jobs listed make it worth it.
Velvet Jobs covers all sorts of positions, but has a listing of currently over 1,300 jobs classified as remote. The service is free when creating your profile and searching. It does push a subscription fee in order to apply for jobs, but I have been able to search Google with keywords in job listings on Velvet Jobs that I like and apply directly to the company for free.
