The Best Remote Job Sites To Find Your Dream Remote Job (In 2021)

Job Sites Where Everyone Can Apply vs. Using A Paid Exclusive With Less Competition

#1 Sites That Take A Cut From Your Pay

It’s likely you have heard of sites like Upwork, Freelancer and Fiverr when you read this.

I believe they are great to test the waters with freelancer work and independent clients, however, they are less than ideal when looking for a part or full-time remote job. 

The main reason being that they take roughly 20% fees on everything you make while working via the platform.

They can even watch your screen on how you work, plus the introduction of their points-based system makes it hard to compete when you are brand new and just starting out as you’ll be forced to compete on price.

If you want to dip your toes into freelance life, nothing wrong with using Upwork or Fiverr, I have too in the past, just know that these gig economy sites own the entire relationship with your clients and anyone can put up a job without any real filters build into it.

#2 Job Aggregators

Secondly, you’ll find some free sites below that list hundreds of different remote job postings purely via an RSS feed.

This means, the remote jobs listed aren’t checked by humans and you might have to sift through a lot of unusable jobs.

These sites typically display a lot of ads and likely also has a lot of competition. If you have time to sort through the good and the bad and then apply to many different jobs to beat your competition along the way, job aggregators are a free way to find a remote job. 

#3 Handpicked Remote Jobs That Come At A Price

If you’re tired of the above and looking for one of the best remote job sites, you will sooner or later come across Flexjobs. A site that doesn’t recycle job listings from other sites and weeds out the competition much better by charging a small fee.

All jobs are screened individually here. You can find remote and flexible jobs working for Fortune 500 companies as well as startups, small and medium-sized businesses for under $50 per year. And if you have a problem, you can even talk to a real human. They don’t take a cut of your pay either, it’s all yours to keep.
