Many people consider remote work the future of work. It may not be perfect for everyone, but it does appeal to a large number of employees in the tech industry. Perks include getting rid of the usually exhausting commute, designing your own work schedule, eating whatever you want for lunch, and coding away in your pyjamas. Not to mention the hours of uninterrupted deep work one can get in a day when not interrupted by a distracting colleague every five minutes. So where can you find those fabled remote jobs?

Remote OK

Probably one of the biggest job boards with a focus on remote work, Remote OK offers thousands of options, whether you are a technical or non-technical candidate. You can browse through categories such as software development, customer support, marketing, and design. Remote OK also publishes some interesting remote work statistic, showing hiring trends across categories such as JavaScript, NodeJS, PHP, sales, finance, user experience, or education. You can also subscribe to a daily or weekly email with all new remote jobs posted on the website.

We Work Remotely

The biggest strength of We Work Remotely is its community. With an active Slack boasting thousands of active users sharing opportunities and helping each other, it is one of the best places on the Internet to chat all things remote work as a job applicant. Beside thousands of job openings in categories such as customer support, DevOps, project management and more, they also provide useful resources such as a podcast or a list of their Top 100 Companies, sorted by total number of remote job openings posted on the platform.

Remote Circle

What if you want to find a remote job in your timezone? Then Remote Circle is the solution you have been looking for. You can enter your city to only display remote jobs in your specific timezone, and subscribe to their newsletter to receive five new jobs every weekday. The website currently shows hundreds of remote jobs to browse through, across categories such as data and AI, sales, programming, translation, admin, design, finance, HR, and legal.

Remotive Jobs

First, Remotive Jobs gets the palm for the cutest remote work board design. Looking for a job is not the most enjoyable experience, but the fun hand-drawn dogs make you want to click everywhere and make browsing the website a real pleasure. Second, it’s very easy to browse through categories such as software development, customer support, design, marketing, sales, product, and more. You can also join a paid community of 1,200+ remote professionals to get feedback on your CV and access exclusive offers before everyone else.

WellPaid

If you don’t want to commit to a full-time job and are looking for freelance gigs instead, WellPaid focuses on remote contracts, with a particular emphasis on technical jobs, such as engineering or design jobs. The website is refreshed with new openings every day, and it’s easy to browse through them via tags for specific tech stacks. You can also subscribe to alerts for specific languages, such as PHP or JavaScript. The website comes with a blog with resources such as a guide to set up a limited company for contracting in the UK, or how HMRC determines whether a worker is an employee or a contractor. But the best feature – where the name of the platform comes from – is its ranking based on average rate for a specific programming language or stack. Just look for the job postings flagged as having a great rate.

Expanding the search

Another great place to look is Twitter, by looking up queries such as #remotejob. Many companies post their job offerings on Twitter first, and if posted by an employee you can also reach out directly via DMs. If you want to make your network work harder for you and are in a position where you can be open about your job search, consider posting a tweet to make it clear what exactly you are looking for. You may be surprised to see how far a couple of re-tweets can bring you.
