10+ Biggest Remote Tech Jobs Aggregators Comparison

ReactJS *Personnel Management *IT career Social networks and communities Remote work

There is a myriad of articles about where to find remote jobs, particularly in tech. Some of them are outdated and most of them don't provide detailed reviews. So that's why I decided to do my own research. I did a basic search by "React" skill (where possible) and expected to see mostly "Frontend Developer" vacancies.

In order to make it easier and more clear I developed my own points-based system. It is based on the parameters that I find most useful for my job search. Here they are:

  • Number of remote vacancies: 0 (min) - 10 (max);

  • Recency of vacancies: 0 (min) - 10 (max);

  • Relevance: 0 (min) - 10 (max);

  • Search by Skills: 0 - no; 3 - yes;

  • Search by Titles / Categories: 0 - no 3 - yes;

  • Location filters : 0 none; 2 - US-only filter; 4 - filter by other locations;

  • Other filters: 0 (min) - 3 (max)

  • E-mail subscription: 0 - none, 2 - yes, 4 - personalized:

  • Extra features: 0 (min) - 5 (max).

And here is the final rating:
