- Has a good amount of remote listings. Made by no other than Pieter Levels.
Remote OK is a job board for remote-focused job opportunities.
I've been applying to different companies for the past few months, and it's definitely the best of class of the remote job boards – Solid design, easy-to-use, great job postings.
However, most of the job postings are developer-focused, so if you're not a developer you may not get immediate value.
every time i try to search using custom keyword, it jus doesn't allow you, instead preselects the keywords that they have in site.
- In terms of time spent / quality of the jobs, AngelList Jobs win for me. On sites like UpWork you will lose dozens of hours by applying to jobs you will not win, it's stupid. On AngelList, you just specify your search criteria and then go through the jobs almost similar to swiping on Tinder. By having to skip or apply, you will not miss anything. When applying, in the message, I would usually just send my portfolio/CV, only sometimes I would take couple minutes to write custom message about why I am interested in the role. I would start investing more time with skype interview only after I get some interest from the company back. This is perfect for busy people, ie. if you already have a job/clients and keeping eye for more without having to spend too much time on it. It's also platform that is very friendly to remote jobs.
WeWorkRemotely is basic - which is a plus. I'd like to be able to filter a little more e.g. like Angellist "Director && VP" for instane vs. generically looking through Exec jobs.
It would be nice if the opportunities listed were actually remote across North America or even globally. Most of this is "work remotely in the continental U.S."
- Fantastic list of jobs curated from a broad sampling of industries around the world. Supported by people who are passionate about remote work, team culture, and community. PS: They have an awesome Slack community as well!
- Upwork is a fantastic platform to find high quality freelance jobs. You can get work from anywhere in the world. Work at an hourly rate of flat fee, it's up to you. I think the breadth of great clients and freelancers makes Upwork my go to platform when searching for remote freelance work.
"all contractors must have at least one year of professional experience in each skill on their profile." - One year doesn't seem to be sufficient for a developer to be 'experienced'. When I think 'experienced' I think 5+ years of experience.
Even if they work in a professional setting in a large company, there's no guarantee their code quality is high.
Emma and the team have been slow burning this. It feels perfectly niche enough for the market - and decidedly better than other recent 'freelancer' options.
