    Simple, easy, solid content


    Wish I could filter things more towards whatI am looking for

    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.

  • Pros: 

    Can't say I've enjoyed it, sorry.


    The quality of the leads aren't always the greatest. Lots of hype.

    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."

@v4violetta @cenk My only concern is that one is a little more skewed toward development jobs. Finding remote work when you are more of a marketing/sales/business person is super hard. WeWorkRemotely has distinct sections that speak to those, whereas RemoteOK doesn't really prioritize anything outside development, or at least, I can't easily find those vacancies. That said, @levelsio has never failed to impress me with the creations he has made! But I guess this comment is an enhancement request ;) My final point that may bolster the challenge that he has is simply that most companies don't mind hiring remotely for developers but do want the other roles in-house. We need to change that! With all the tech that's out there, it's entirely possible to run companies fully remotely. Think Buffer. Think Namecheap (I may have a bias, I am part of that crew--yep @levelsio, you are always tweeting with me, and now you know). But there are few others that embrace the same tech-connected-distance-apart culture.
@tamar You’re right, RemoteOK’s focus is slightly different. Do you know if there are remote job sites that cater towards designers?

@cenk Remote OK is an aggregator and also has WWR as a source, so a bit different. WWR's jobs quality is great by the way, they've made one of the best job boards for remote careers now.

@tamar @cenk you're right, it's pretty representative of the overall job market in remote work right now. That means it's mostly development and design jobs. However, there are some other categories like business development ( and copywriting ( Unfortunate for some, I think non-technical jobs are a thing of the past.

Very solid remote work site. I would appreciate some stronger categorization, and some more non-programming jobs.
How is it different from elance, rent-a-coder, and many more?

@bilb02 It's jobs, not freelance contracts for the most part

The quality of available positions are excellent and WeWorkRemotely is a little bit more organized then Remote Ok if you're not a developer.
