The best sites to find remote development work
If you had asked me about 6 months ago, I would have no idea where to find decent remote jobs and project listings for a developer.
I probably would have just said something like ‘just search remote python developer on Linkedin or Indeed’ which now would be pretty useless advice. How the times have changed.
Over the past many months I’ve become some what of a remote work finding ninja and since then I’ve used these great powers to provide hundreds of developers with remote work leads which they may not have found themselves.
There’s a ton of places where all this remote work is being posted and it’s not just strictly remote work sites.
You see, hiring remote developers is and has been a growing trend going heavy for at least a few years now. 2018 is definitely going to see an exponential rise in this trend.
The problem is that many companies looking for remote workers don’t always know where to find them, so they end up posting in traditional places like freelance sites and very broad but popular job boards.
Through my journey of finding and indexing hundreds of these sources, there’s quite a few that always seem to have the highest quality of listings.
Some of these might be obvious, others not so much. The best way to keep track of all these is to add to them to a RSS feed reader or skip that altogether and sign up for a free aggregating service like remotehacker.io. ;)
Without further ado, here’s my list of the 6 best remote development work sites.
A curated email sent to you based on your remote work preferences. We send remote jobs and freelance projects and save you hours of searching by bringing together all the other job and freelance listing sites into one simple email.
A job board that’s dedicated to remote only, they have all varieties of tech related remote jobs.
More than just forums, StackOverFlow gets the highest number of remote jobs posted on a regular basis. Great for finding full-time remote opportunities.
Another remote job board similar to WeWorkRemotely. Another great place for all types of tech related remote jobs and projects.
A huge variety of startups from seed staged to well into funding rounds. You’ll find a lot of great remote opportunities here of all sorts. You can also set email alerts for new postings.
Yes, Craigs List is still a great place to find all types of jobs and remote work, especially more short-term freelance projects. It can be tricky to find all the right places to look due to the large number of cities and regions across the world.
