Find Flexible & Remote Leads with These Job Boards


You’re not alone! We’ve all been there, and now I want to share with you the tools and resources I’ve used to help me land remote-first, location indepedent roles with the Remote Job Seekers’ Toolbox!

The quickest, easiest way to find job leads is through job boards, websites and platforms. Many are general purpose, serving every industry. Others focus on specific roles (software developers, recruiters, sales professionals).

That doesn’t mean they’re the most effective way to get a job, though. Especially not a remote one. Networking will bring you better, more targeted results. Most companies fill vacancies with referrals from others.

But these job search engines are a great place to start. They’ll also give you an idea of what the current job market is like.

Consider the websites listed below. These resources are divided into three sections:

  • Remote Job Boards: Platforms that focus solely on remote roles in marketing, tech, HR, customer service, sales and more. While a great place to start when looking for a fully remote role, be aware that they are highly competitive.
  • Standard Job Boards: Indeed, Monster, Stepstone… The usual household names. Yes, you can find remote jobs here as well! In fact, since COVID-19, many of the traditional job boards have added a “Remote” or “Work from Home” filter. Perfect!
  • Freelance Job Boards: There is a plethora of places you can find remote freelance gigs, too! You can find gigs in industries such as design, marketing, copywriting, social media, programming and more.

Know a fantastic job board, but don’t see it listed here? Let me know and I’ll add it!

Job Boards for Everyone: Digital Nomads, Remote Workers & Freelancers

Remote job boards are just that: Job search engines that exclusively list work from home roles at remote-first or remote-friendly companies. Since many are based in the USA, this is a good option for job seekers who live there. Some platforms also have considerable options for those in the UK and Canada, as well as Europe. Before applying for a job, ALWAYS make sure to check the “location”. The good news is that more and more companies are opening up to applicants globally.

Not everyone wants to work a 9-to-5 (remote or otherwise). Some of us want to go our own way, so I’ve included some of the best freelance job boards out there. However, even full-time employees may want to start up a side gig and that’s where these platforms come in handy. Also, you never know – your source of side-income could lead to a full-time job in the future.

Want full-time work but with remote/flexible options? “Standard” job boards are EXACTLY where you should go. Indeed, Stepstone & Glassdoor are the perfect place to start. Since COVID-19, many of them have now added a “remote” and “work from home” feature. A benefit of these boards is that you have far less competition, since many companies are hiring either locally or nationally.
