What is the best online resume / CV builder?

Currently in the hunt for my first dev job and have to update my resume; I'm looking for a tool that can build a simple and well-crafted resume, and export to PDF 🙏

    Standard Resume

    One beautiful resume that works everywhere

    Back in my day we fiddled with margins and wrestled with formatting in MS Word. Now we have web-based tools like Standard Resume to create simple, beautiful CV's. I'm a fan of the minimalist templates they provide. That said, for anyone working in technology it can be very useful to maintain an online presence (on LinkedIn, AngelList, Twitter, etc.) that represents you. I haven't seen a resume from most of the people we brought onto the Product Hunt team.
    Standard Resume is a free service with no frills. Resumes are viewable on mobile and desktop, and you can get a downloadble PDF.
  2. Clean interface and simple drag and drop editing. You can also save a PDF for free.

    Another one - better templates and design focus. Simple drag and drop builder. You can download your resume at any time—print, share, or send it off instantly. PS - not really tried cvlogin, but I'll give it a shot as we do make some (a lot) of CVs for a non-profit ed startup.

    A better way to build resumes for web and print

    Web portfolio or professional PDF resume. Its Mobile friendly too if you happen to share the web version. Otherwise, create a copy and export to PDF in one click. The templates in the free version are common and when I tried I created from scratch. It works. You can also access PRO templates.

    I don't know why this wasn't on the list. But Novoresume is perfect to create resumes in 1/2 pages. It's clean and simple.

    FlowCV 2.0

    Infinitely customizable resume templates

    Alexander Zeman made this product
    Of course, I am a little bit biased, though I honestly believe you should give our product, FlowCV a shot: it's free to use (will be donation-based in the future) and you do not even need to create an account for giving it a spin. We focus on creating resumes that can be customized easily and extensively rather than forcing you into a one-size-fits-all template. Also, we wanted to keep it practical, so rather than putting in a lot of fancy elements that possibly irritate applicant-tracking-systems or recruiters, we want to maximize legibility & structure. You can download PDF without watermarks after creating a (free) account.

    Disclosure: I made it. I built this simple and totally free tool in order to fill a gap in this landscape, where there are a lot of fancy builders that are a) way too complex and b) almost never totally free. Features in might look limited, but you can create a resume in just a minutes and download as PDF or DOC file if you want to edit it later. The site stores your data in the browser local storage, so even if you choose not to create an account, you are able to work without fearing losing all of your work.
