"Where do I find remote jobs?"

Many of my followers asked over DMs what are the best job boards to find high-paying remote jobs.

Best Job Boards To Find Remote Jobs

Having hired hundreds of engineers for my remote teams and having been an applicant myself several times, I have a decent understanding of what works and what doesn't.

From my experience, these are the 6 job boards I recommend using. And 2 job boards I do NOT recommend at all.

1.  remoteok.com

By far the best job board to look for remote jobs.

@levelsio has perfected it over the years, and it has a solid volume of remote jobs from both large companies and small startups.

Jobs listed mention:

  • Geographic constraints
  • Salary range
  • Async or not

2. angel .co

AngelList is my personal favorite. I found my first remote job from there, and several other offers since then.

It has a solid volume of jobs listed, especially startups and especially from US.

"Most" jobs listed mention:

  • Geographic constraints
  • Salary range

3. workatastartup .com

My second favorite. This job board is exclusive for companies backed by YCombinator, and that means well-funded tech startups.

Most of those companies operate remote and are open to applicants from anywhere. I got my best offers ever from this job board.

4. weworkremotely .com

Along with remoteOK, WWR has been around for many years.

Although inferior, I find it interesting for the diversity of roles & arrangements. It has a mix of full-time and freelance openings.

Not all listings have a salary or geographic constraints, though.

5. jobboardsearch .com

I recently came across this project by @rrmdp, which is an aggregator of 300+ job boards.

New job boards are created all the time for niche roles, industries, countries, etc.

I recommend this aggregator to anyone looking for non-tech roles, especially.

6. glassdoor .com

From the traditional well-known job boards, the only one I recommend for remote jobs is Glassdoor.

It still has many "fake remote" roles from big companies, but on the flip side, it has very relevant crowdsourced insights about the roles and interview process.

The 2 Job Boards You Shouldn’t Use To Find Remote Jobs

The 2 job boards I do NOT recommend using for remote jobs are:

  • Linkedin
  • Indeed

Those have a high volume of jobs, but also huge noise.

It's hard for candidates to filter actual remote roles. And many listings are spammy, applicants will never hear back from the companies.
