How to build and run a remote company
Although there are tens of remote jobs boards out there, these are the most popular sites to find a remote job in 2019. If you're planning to ditch the office this year, you should browse these sites daily and you won't miss the best opportunities.
You should also keep in mind that unlike jobs in your city, there's a lot of competition (the whole world really) for remote jobs, so it's probably not enough to just send your CV. Find out everything you can about the company you're planning to apply for and impress them on your cover letter.
Started out as one of the first remote jobs boards more than 10 years ago by Basecamp, WWR is still one of the most visited remote jobs boards with their 2.5M monthly visitors.
It's a super simple site that lists remote jobs by categories like programming, design, copywriting, and more.
WWR is also running the biggest remote work community in the world. They write blog, host a podcast, and there's a Slack community talking about remote work.
Made by a famous indie maker Pieter Levels who travels to work from anywhere and bootstraps side projects to open startups, it's one of the most well known remote jobs sites in the scene.
You will find remote jobs posted directly to Remote OK, but also jobs fetched from Stack Overflow's remote jobs section.
Pieter has made it possible to search remote jobs by tags and also get a daily email with new jobs in categories you're interested in. You can tweet him when you find a bug and he tweets you back when it's fixed (if he's currently working, it may be within a couple of minutes).
They're keeping their quality level up by hand-picking the best remote jobs daily. They're also providing a shortcut to land a remote job with their Remotive Community and webinars. It does cost you $99, but remember how much competition you have when applying for a remote role? You will get the job quicker with the tips from the community.
