Well, after I spent more than 1 hour to build my profile, I applied for a job and discovered that you have to make a subscription starting from $19/month to apply for jobs. Nowhere is written in the homepage. Bad move.

@mrdobelina Sorry that part is not more clear. We will work on updates to better explain how our process works. Remote is designed to match specific criteria to the right job seeker/job. As a job seeker, you complete your profile and set your job preferences. Once your profile is complete you "unlock" job matching and our system will begin inviting you to jobs when it's a good match. When invited, you apply to these jobs for free - and get fast tracked to the hiring manager. This enables us to ensure we are providing high quality matches to both job seekers and employers. Alternatively job seekers can purchase a plan to access additional features and have the ability to be a bit more proactive in their search. Hope this helps!

@nickmacario yea I'm not questioning the fee itself (somehow you have to monetize) but just the fact that is not written anywhere till the moment you finally want to apply for a job. Something in the homepage (a Pricing tab maybe) would make everything more clear. On the other side, is it really well done!

@mrdobelina woah, are you kidding? Who's going to pay $20 a month for a profile? NO thanks

@nickmacario The hunter said he spent an hour to build his profile. Could you elaborate on that? True or false?

@adamrsweet Think there's a misunderstanding here. Creating a profile is free, along with everything else on the site, including applying to jobs when you are a match. Keep in mind, recruiters and hiring managers use search functionality to seek out talent. They also work with our internal team to place jobs not seen in the public marketplace.

@mirmayne The hunter was Kevin. Some people spend 5 minutes, others more depending on content, customization, etc.

@nickmacario @mrdobelina I've been looking for something like this for BA, Product and Project Manager/scrum master/ and more business related positions - is that something you guys work with?

@mrdobelina @nickmacario @adamrsweet I mean, if the user can fill a profile for free and could anytime decide to be a paying customer or remain free. There's nothing bad with that. The only way it could be bad is if after filling the profile you are asked to pay and you lost everything. That will be terrible. Nonetheless, communicating clearly about the packages will be much helpful. $20 isn't for a profile.

@nickmacario hey Nick, I actually meant for being the remote worker myself :) Still on the business + jobs front :D

@nickmacario at first glance it seems to me the opposite would make more sense, i.e. pay fee if you book work, but I'm sure you guys thought it through...

@kwdinc looks like there technology applies to all types of job seekers. Why are they applying to remote professionals only?

Thanks @kwdinc! Hi Hunters, we're excited to introduce Remote.com to the Product Hunt community today. There are plenty of freelance marketplaces and nearly as many remote job boards, but we found the experience fragmented. The workforce is undeniably mobilizing and our goal is to be the primary resource for your remote career, whether that be freelance, consulting, or a full-time remote position. A place where you can not only find jobs, but have all the tools necessary to manage your career, as well as a community of like-minded professionals redefining "work". We strongly value your feedback and look forward to it. Thanks!

@nickmacario absolutely love this! However full disclosure I'm working on something very very similar, except even one step bigger... either way I love to see companies on the same path, creating solutions for problems people don't even realize they're going to have yet. 20 2040% of the workforce will be remote workers, but where are they going to go to work?
