A long commute, terrible traffic, constant distractions, and impromptu meetings; there are a ton of reasons that you might find your office gig to be more hassle than it’s worth. If you’re ready to trade in your cubicle for a home office, then it’s time to start your remote job hunt. These days, there are tons of companies that actively recruit remote designers, developers, and other tech-focused roles. The trick is simply finding what’s out there. Hopefully, this list of ten awesome remote job sites will be your first step towards your exciting new career, sans the drive to work!

1. Dribbble


Dribbble offers both a full-time job board and a section of freelance gigs for designers in every field. Companies post job or project descriptions and receive submissions from interested creative professionals.

2. RemoteOK


The benefit of RemoteOK is that you can specifically filter results by “Worldwide” and work from anywhere. In addition, you receive the option to choose how frequently you want to receive notifications. It’s a hassle-free way to see what’s available out there, no matter what stage your career is in, so you can keep your options open.

3. FlexJobs


As an A+ business by the Better Business Bureau, FlexJobs has been reported on CNN, USA Today, NBC and other notable news sources. The site is fee-based, but reasonable.

It all depends on what your objectives are, as in part-time, short-term, full-time, or long-term.

As a visitor to the site, you are able to check out what jobs are available. This is a great tool to see what they have to offer, and if it looks promising, then you can decide to join for whatever length of time you feel you may need. Since FlexJobs also provides jobs at specific locations, should you only want to see remote jobs, be sure to click on the ‘job type’ bar and select ‘remote only’ or you’ll get frustrated sifting through the wide variety they have to offer.

4. We Work Remotely


We Work Remotely is a ‘no-nonsense’ site for finding remote design and development work that has no fees associated with job seekers. The only thing that is a bit of a drawback is that the listings aren’t as plentiful as other sites, but the companies they work with are solid.
