Top 21 Remote Job Sites in 2021

If you are looking for a remote job you can do from home, this list of top 21 remote job sites might help you find the right one.

When I was looking for a remote job, I came across many different portals to find remote work opportunities. Contrary to freelancing websites, those sites only post jobs that offer longterm positions.

Whether you are starting out, or transitioning from a 9-5 lifestyle, long-term employment will allow you to have more flexibility while offering the security. Also, you will gain important skills.

Those sites offer mostly location independent or home office positions and are looking for specialists and generalists from a wide range of fields.

For those who are not yet ready to take the leap to become location independent, see those remote job offers as inspiration and guide for a possible career choice.

What other ways are there to find remote jobs?

Another good advice is to join different Facebook groups. I have found most of my work (whether remote, full-time or freelance) through Facebook groups, as there are many recruiters and people who are simply willing to help.

If you are active on Xing, then it might be a good option as well.

Additionally, there are many threads on sites like Reddit which will offer further positions and tips.
