What does HackerNews think of awesome-remote-job?

A curated list of awesome remote jobs and resources. Inspired by https://github.com/vinta/awesome-python

I worked for a company like this. Usually their range is not the same as SF or NYC, but some less expensive US city.

Try looking for "location agnostic" companies or companies without "location factor".

btw, it would make a great section on Awesome Remote Job [1]

You can find a list of resources here: https://github.com/lukasz-madon/awesome-remote-job

I usually point people in this direction. It has grown quite a bit so you might need to filter through some garbage, but it should at least serve as a decent starting point.

Like any jobs, your existing network will be best. Outside of that, I usually point people to https://github.com/lukasz-madon/awesome-remote-job which is a pretty good resource and should help you find what you are looking for.

> My assumption is that most people will check Indeed since they've got the most listings these days

I have never used Indeed in my life, but that may be more personal preference as I find job reqs there to be boring, underpaid, and not what I'm actually looking for.


There is an issue in my repo with a really good spreadsheet contaning a lot of companies. I was planning to import that but havent got time and now im stuck in Japan with just my phone.

Yes, I got contacted by HN hiring threads multiple times. I ended up taking few gigs and it turned out to be good. The quality of the jobs and requirements we get from HN is good when compared to other job boards. Experience definitely matters for a good role. I see lot of requirements are related to javascript frameworks (e.g React). In your case I would show some links to your profile (i.e Github, linkedin or your own website). Good luck with your search. You can also reach out to people from "Who is Hiring" thread.

Here is list of compiled remote job boards.


I've been working there for over a year and the company was already distributed - this was critical.

I've used https://github.com/lukasz-madon/awesome-remote-job to find a new job

To your question: "How do you even get to do that?" You ask. My current enterprise job was not offered as remote. It was advertised as an in-office job. When the job was offered to me, I asked if I could work remote. Due to how hard hiring is for my role, I was told it'd be no problem (and I had other offers; lesson for another thread, "always negotiate from a position of power").

The below resources come to mind as places to start (no affiliation).




Also, an ongoing salary survey document for your use in ensuring you're not getting undervalued: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1a1Df6dg2Pby1UoNlZU2l...

Maybe you could try working remotely for a company in another country? Not sure how the visa situation would work, but there are lots of resources out there for this sort of thing:

I see a lot of customer support / customer success jobs on the remote boards. It makes sense given that can be email, chat, or phone from anywhere. Also, it helps companies spread across time zones.

I can't recall analytics jobs but try some of the normal sites and see what you can find.

> Any tips for finding a good remote position?

Always be looking, and don't relax your criteria (compensation, work/life balance) because its remote.

Just because a position is advertised as on site doesn't mean you can't negotiate it to be remote.

Here are some remote job resources I keep bookmarked:

To find my remote job two years ago, I went down the list of companies in the Awesome Remote Job list [0] and checked every single one of their career pages. You can sometimes also find remote jobs on Indeed by putting "remote" in the location field.

I'm in the exact situation as OP. As a result, I'm moving to lower cost area and continue as a remote worker. Shameless plug: https://github.com/lukasz-madon/awesome-remote-job

20% down payment + stamp duty tax is roughly 130k. There is also a nonzero risk of the property bubble. Only Hong Kong is worse in terms of property purchasing power for average salary.

There are serval reasons for high prices:

- Market is heavy regulated.

- UK doesn't have any land and estate tax.

- Developers oligopoly is hoarding the land to keep the prices.

- Foreign investor are using properties as a insurance for rainy days.

- Interest rates are low and inflation is high, so people are pumping money into real estate market.

- Councils cannot build council housing any more.

- Bank of England schemes to buy.

It's an unfortunate situation. Extreme misallocation of capital which is bound to cause problems in the future. Money don't flow to companies and productive investments, hence there is no growth and the wages are stagnant. What is more, it makes it really expensive to start a company.

What's the solution? 1% estate tax with 80% discount if you pay taxes in UK (British Columbia passed a new property tax and it works well for them[1]). For an average person there would be no change - they would pay estate tax instead of council tax directly or indirectly. That would cause 25-30% price drop in London[2]. Why government won't do it? It would piss off a lot of powerful people which own real estate. Significant portion of the population has bought properties to rent and that price drop could make them go bankrupt. This is an unsolvable problem given the extreme divide in British society, since the Brexit vote. There won't be enough political will to pass the laws.

Real HQ - Maker of Agent Pronto, software designed to help make home buying and selling a better experience. We've been remote since the start, now 50+ spread across the globe

On https://realhq.com/jobs/ though:

Work Remotely

We’re looking for people who live in the United States.

Another company doesn't state that explicitly under http://www.surgeforward.com/careers/ - but they feature a map of stick figure "employees" spread over the US on that site, a clear indication they're in the same camp

For many companies "remote work" is synonymous with "remote work for US residents", and it's a totally different category from global point of view. I'd like to see some source that dinstinguishes between the two
