We’ve put together a list of remote job sites as well as sites with a remote filter to tell you what they’re for, how well they work and also added a comparison table in the end to give you a quick overview.
Teleport knows that quality of work doesn’t necessarily depend on your physical location. We are committed to creating a culture and environment that allows our people to do great work from wherever in the world they wish to be.
Until recently, remote jobs were relatively hard to find, but now the issue seems to be the opposite – there are heaps of new sites publishing remote jobs, and figuring out which site suits your needs best can be challenging.
So, let’s get started!
To make the comparison easier, we made this table highlighting the main features for each site. Note: The “volume of ads” in case of sites that have a remote jobs filter shows the volume of remote job ads, not all of them. You can read details about every site under the table.
Who is it for? Workatho.me is a job board for remote positions in technology. One of the categories is jobs for moms, which is a different but very much welcome approach.
There’s a nice wide range of job categories and job descriptions are presented with a lot of extra information (company headquarters, Twitter account, timezone etc). Unfortunately there is no quick search function, although the fact that there aren’t a lot of jobs listed means the lack of a search engine isn’t too big of a problem.
Who is it for? Pretty much everyone – the site has positions in jobs ranging from design to business execution, however – the biggest chunk of open spots is in programming.
We Work Remotely is based on the book “Remote – Office Not Required” by Jason Fried and David Heinemeier Hansson – founders of 37signals. The site has categories for jobs as well as a quick search function – again, not too many remote jobs listed in the first place, but they are easy to find and the job descriptions are presented nicely with a clear place to apply at the end.
Who is it for? Remote working has a range of job categories, most of which are technology related.
The site has quite a good search functionality with several filters that include the job type (whether it should be full time/part time or an internship or freelance job). Even though a majority of the jobs are remote, the filters still include a vague location definer as well (for the US, UK and Europe).
Who is it for? Working Nomads curates a list of remote digital jobs – job categories are mostly in tech with most offers in development.
Categories are easy to navigate plus there’s a quick search option. Working Nomads also has a subscription list for daily or weekly updates on new offers.
Who is it for? Everyone – Skip The Drive pre-filters for a wide array of telecommuting, work-from-home and remote jobs.
There is also a telecommuting calculator on the site which is a nifty little tool for finding out how much time and money you can save by working remotely. Search results in job categories could be presented a bit better – it’s a little messy and doesn’t look good at all – even though it is pre-filtering, it could look a lot better.
Who is it for? Women! Power To Fly is focused on matching women with remote jobs in tech.
Candidates have to join the talent database, go through vetting, then get matched to a job, go through a 2-4 week paid test period and if the job fits, they can start working. The site design is beautiful and job offers have a quick overview in the list so you can see the important details right away without even having to navigate to the description page.
Who is it for? Anyone who needs a job where its ok to work remotely, includes a ton of different job categories.
The site has no quick search (which is bad considering the immense volume of job ads) but features quite a few helpful filters to compensate for that. You can also get a daily, weekly or monthly email on new offers. In job categories it also states the average salary for that category, which is quite useful to see.
Who is it for? Anyone looking for a remote job – categories range from marketing to developing to designing.
Jobspresso is an online platform dedicated to connecting talented people who seek remote careers with companies that offer these positions. Job listings are curated, reviewed and added on a daily basis and categories are easy to browse thanks to multiple filters and keyword search.
Who is it for? Remote Tech Work aims to provide remote jobs resources for developers, designers, testers, and support engineers.
Job categories are easy to browse and all important information is in the job description along with a link to apply.
Who is it for? Remote Jobs helps you find a remote job in IT.
Remote Jobs aggregates all remote jobs in one place and also reads and indexes every job post to ensure that the company does in fact offer a fulltime 100% remote position. There is a quick search to make finding your speciality easier and you can also subscribe to weekly newsletter to stay in the loop.
Who is it for? Anyone looking for a remote job – Remotive’s job categories range from engineering to human resources.
The remote job board is easy to browse and clicking on a job takes you directly to the actual ad where you can apply. In addition to listing remote jobs in all different categories, Remotive also shares the best tips on remote work and productivity with hundreds of enthusiasts every week with their newsletter.
The following sites aren’t strictly only for remote job ads, but have a “remote” or “anywhere” filter in the search options.
Who is it for? Stack Overflow Careers matches programmers on Stack Overflow with jobs.
Programmers create profiles highlighting their work on Stack Overflow, which gives employers an in-depth look at their expertise. Job ads can be filtered by either relevance or recent posts. Has a very cool “Explore …” function – if you’re looking at a remote job in London, you can click on “Explore London” and see an overview of the place including career salaries, what’s it known for, other companies in that region etc.
Who is it for? The jobs on Dribble are specifically for designers.
Has a remote/anywhere filter, although there aren’t many remote jobs listed. There is no longer job description on Dribbble itself – it only has the name of the position, location and the date the job was posted – clicking on an ad will take you to the company website for more information and applying. No quick search but there aren’t enough jobs in the list to make that an issue.
Who is it for? Authentic jobs is a job board for hackers, designers, and creative pros.
Authentic Jobs isn’t for only remote positions, but has a remote filter and a bunch of filters including job type (full time, freelancer, internship etc). Job descriptions come with a lot of extra information and application happens on the company’s own page.
Who is it for? Angel lists the best startup jobs in multiple categories from finance to engineering.
Has a remote filter option and also the option to say whether you’re interested in a job or not – in the latter case you can archive the ad so it’s not in your way and you can concentrate on the ads in your “yes” list that you’re genuinely interested in.
Who is it for? This is probably the only site on this list that doesn’t have a category for jobs in tech at all, however a wide range of different things – youth, legal assistance, health etc.
Idealist claims to have 12,451 jobs worldwide including remote opportunities and lists jobs as well as internships, volunteer opportunities, events, blogs etc. It’s not a specific remote job site but has a remote filter and job descriptions come with quite a lot of extra information about the job and company.
Who is it for? GitHub is a collaboration community centered around code – GitHub Jobs lists employment opportunities for developers and can be filtered to display only remote jobs.
Not a lot of remote jobs listed (around 16 at the moment), but the descriptions are presented in a simple way with all the important information easily accessible.
