So you want to find the best remote tech job possible, eh? Well DailyTekk wants you to as well because, after all, it’s you (and people like you) that make the amazing products we cover here on DailyTekk. We wouldn’t have fun and useful gadgets and apps and startups/services if it weren’t for the talented engineers, designers and visionaries out there. So whether you consider yourself a full-time digital nomad, are trying to land your very first job after recently learning how to code (ahem, here’s 3 new ways to learn how to code), are an elite developer just looking for more (or more enjoyable) work or simply want to keep your options open, if you can’t find a great remote job or gig using the resources listed here then we’re sorry but it just doesn’t exist.
I don’t want to tell you how to run your life, of course, but if you’re really serious about finding the best remote jobs/work, I’d consider checking your favorites from this list daily or subscribe to their email newsletters/notifications or RSS feeds. While it’s definitely true that good engineers are always in demand, it’s equally true that the best jobs go to those who connect with the right people first. So get on it! Note: these are really in no particular order, so explore them all.
Oh, and when you’re done checking out these awesome remote job sites, you might also be interested in the list of 100 terrific tools for coders and developers we put together awhile back as well as the 10 best ways to teach your kids how to code. Just sayin.
We publish useful new tech lists every weekday. See them all!
Jobscibe does one thing: it brings remote jobs to you so you don’t have to go looking for them. Like Remote OK above, you can choose whether you’d like to receive a daily, weekly or monthly email containing remote jobs. You can choose from categories like: design, front-end development, back-end development, mobile app development and marketing. I like the simplicity and the emails are tastefully designed and to-the-point (check out a sample).
We Work Remotely
We Work Remotely is a nice, simple and straightforward remote job board that makes the ability to search job remote job listings easy. Companies like Automattic, BuySellAds, Skillshare and more post jobs with descriptions like: iOS developer, web programmer/SEO specialist, seasoned Python developer, Node.js developer, senior Ruby on Rails developer and more.
Remotive is another super-simple remote job board. Companies like Buffer, Heroku, Khan Academy, Trello and Zapier post remote tech jobs in categories like engineering, human resources, marketing, product, sales and support. But I appreciate that the Remotive team sends out a newsletter filled not only with jobs but tips for remote workers as well (see a recent issue).
GoRemote is yet another remote job board (surprise!). But it’s definitely a healthy one: in just the last week there have been over 110 remote jobs listed. From UI designers to web programmers and SEO specialists to marketing directors to senior software engineers, there’s a lot of job diversity on GoRemote. You can also get a daily digest email sent to you with the latest opportunities.
