Great curated list of remote jobs. Cool name. Shocked, but not at all surprised by the responses of men in these reviews. These responses are exactly why remotewoman needs to exist.

Pros:

That someone is taking the time to vet jobs at companies that are not only remote but safe for women.

Cons:

None, I can't believe men are calling this sexist. Really?

Share

Based on what data these companies are described as female friendly? Even so, when you centralize something based on gender, all genders lost in that assumption. Why not, human-friendly jobs?

Pros:

Nice list of jobs.

Cons:

Built on a sexist ideology.

Hi Micael, thanks for enjoying our list of jobs. We work really hard to ensure the highest quality remote opportunities around (no "pay to list" stuff). As noted in our description, we're for men & women alike - anyone can use our site & apply for jobs. However, the unfortunate truth is that there's a gender gap in our world - and most job sites focus on developer jobs that are skewed masculine & have some sketchy jobs trying to scam. We have heavy curation, community flagging & a focus on marketing/design/support jobs to fix the gender imbalance.

To quote the creator : We hope to be a small part of a larger movement where companies make their workplaces & hiring process inviting for all *sexes, genders, orientations and races* And yet its a remote work site only for women

Pros:

Personally, hand curated list of jobs

Cons:

Make it accessible to all genders. Diversity also includes men you know.

Product Manager, Relay

I am not currently looking for a new job, but I will absolutely use this rescource when I'm ready for a new position.

Pros:

This is a great list of curated jobs. I will be sharing for those looking for remote work with my network.

Cons:

I wish there was a Product Management section.

The men complaining in the comments seem to be basing their assumptions on the name of the product and not the product itself. Reading the description, maker's comment and product copy, I don't get how this is "positive discrimination".

Pros:

1. Job board built on a community to vet the companies/jobs 2. focus on dev & non technical jobs equally.

Cons:

It would be helpful to have a precise description of the process to vet the companies and make that more visible in the product.

Share

This is my way to downvote this.

Pros:

Don't even looked at the product

Cons:

Why women specific ? This is positive discrimination ... Stop doing this :) This is not helpful for women.

Hi Alexis, it's really unfortunate that you didn't look at our product - we've worked really hard on building it & expected better from the ProductHunt community. If you looked, you'd see that we're for women & men alike - anyone can use our site & apply for jobs. However, the unfortunate truth is that there's a gender gap in our world - and most job sites focus on developer jobs that are skewed masculine & have some sketchy jobs trying to scam.

Seeking remote evangelist/advocate role

I'm happy to see more sites in this space.

Pros:

A great list of remote jobs

Cons:

Could also support trans/NB folks, as well, instead of being so binary.

When I started to search for remote work I turned to RemoteWoman.com. Having a list of curated position helps in navigating the sometimes overwhelming world of job searching. Jaira (Founder) is deeply dedicated to ameliorating the gender disparities within the workforce. The fact that people are threatened by the mere word "woman" even though it is clearly stated anyone can use the platform is proof there is an unequivocal chasm when it comes to fundamental beliefs. "When you're accustomed to privilege, equality feels like oppression."

Phenomenal list of jobs, welcoming community. Awesome customer service!

Full of wonder, questions, and opinions

I appreciate the sentiment here, I just don't personally find value in utilizing the site unless it has jobs that aren't listed elsewhere. I did not check to see if I could find every single listed position on LinkedIn, Glassdoor, Indeed, etc, but most of these are from major remote employers who heavily promote on the aforementioned sites. Particularly in the case of 100% distributed companies, the demand dramatically outweighs the supply; accordingly, the applicant pool is extremely competitive, and (I assume) that most viable candidates don't need an additional site to identify the opportunities. I give it a neutral recommendation because perhaps others will appreciate it more than I do. If it helps someone else, then great. Beyond "it's not for me," I am bothered by some of the fundamental claims/assumptions, but I don't think they're worth getting into. I wish the creators good luck, and I'm happy to discuss more offline if desired.

Pros:

It has a selection of remote jobs. The intention is good.

Cons:

I don't see the value prop above the existing multitude of free sites that already have these postings.

Remote Woman offers trusted sources for remote opportunities. I had to transition from corporate in order to have a flexible schedule that would allow work-life balance. Along my journey I found it hard to get a hold of a point of contact for most job board sites. What I love the most about Remote Woman is the fact that Jaira and the team care about the candidates as much as they care about the companies on their site. I highly recommend Remote Woman.

Remote Woman and Jaira empowered me by helping me connect with brands and companies out of state. As a successful freelance Art Director, having a reliable connection and platform that encourages women (and men) to grow regardless of race or location, is amazing! I highly recommend working with Remote Woman :)

I've just spent the morning looking through all the job ads relevant for me and it's been lovely. The wording of the ads have made me feel that I can apply even though I don't tick all the boxes. The interface is great. I've not worked remote but am looking to make the move and this site has helped. Great product.
