Freelancing and remote working are both growing trends, and every day we witness new websites and companies offering businesses to connect with their database of remote workers and freelancers.
Hiring a remote worker or a freelancer is a story for itself and if you want to know more about that you can check some of our articles here (link to blog). In this post, we’ll cover the top 10 websites where you can find online remote workers.
Putting ourselves first?
Well yes but for good reason! We believe in quality. And out of all these websites below, we can guarantee quality only for ourselves.
There are numerous benefits to hiring Eastern Europeans, but two we must mention: dedication and education.

Even though it’s not actually a job board you always have the good old outreach strategy that will work best on Linkedin.
You can find many good remote workers on LinkedIn and send them a message or connection with an offer to apply for your job.
So if you have the time and inclination then it’s free (within limits) and considering how big a resource it is it may be worth considering.
Just keep in mind the value of your time!
Another great resource for finding remote workers, as We Work Remotely claims to have over 2.5M monthly visitors.
They don’t have a database of job seekers but they do have a huge amount of visitors – many people who are looking for remote jobs.
The process of posting the job is very simple, you pay a one-time job posting fee of $299 and you create your job advert.

Remote OK is a job search resource powered by Nomad List. You can find a variety of remote workers like developers, customer support, marketing, design, and non-tech professions.
The process of posting the job is similar to WWR – you pay a one-time job posting fee of $299 and you have your job advert active for 90 days.
Remoteok claims that they will deliver your job post to over 1 million professionals in their network.

5. Flex Jobs
Flex jobs is a very popular place on the internet to find remote workers.
They have a large database of job seekers and as you can probably assume, all of them are focused on remote work.
Their plan starts from $14.95 per month and after you subscribe you can start using all of their resources.

Another list based site that works without a database is Remotive.io.
Just like their competitors (job boards without a job seeker database), they have a huge audience and numbers of visitors.
They charge $299 for the initial job post and then if you want to highlight your job advert or company logo you have to pay an additional $79. You also have the option to highlight logo + highlight job ad + pin the post to the top of the category for 1 month + get 2x more tweets, and that option costs $149.
In the end, your job post alone might come up to $448 which looks expensive compared to the other options out there.
You can check them out here.
You probably saw this one coming.
As an industry giant, Upwork deserves a place in this list, as there are many really good remote workers available on Upwork.
If you are looking for a freelancer then Upwork is a great place to find them. They are dedicated to helping employers find the best freelance talents out there. However, if you are looking for a full time or part-time team members, remote workers who will work for you to help you scale your business, Upwork might not be the best solution, as they are very freelance focused.
Bear in mind that Upwork recently changed and introduced new fees for employers and freelancers that can be up to 25% of project costs. So make sure that the costs stack up for you and your needs.
If you want to know how to avoid them, we made a complete post that you can read here.
You can post your project on Upwork for free and just pay the fees once you choose someone to work with.
Similar to Upwork, PeoplePerHour is focused on freelance projects, so if you are looking for a long term engagement this might not be the right place for you.
However, if you are looking for someone to complete a specific project, then PeoplePerHour could work well for you.
They have a fee structure similar to Upwork which ranges from 3.5% to more than 20% of the project cost so those fees could soon add up.
Registering and posting your job is free so is an option for you to see the quality of responses before making a decision to proceed and pay the fees.
One of the largest job boards in the world has a lot of high-quality remote workers from all over the world.
Historically Indeed has been more about in-person jobs however they are now moving to support more and more remote jobs.
Indeed offers free registration and free job posting. However, in the sea of job posts, your voice might not be heard so you can boost and promote your job post on their platform for as little as $5 per day.
Employers we’ve spoken to suggest that a budget of $200-500 is normal for attracting high-quality candidates on Indeed for their job adverts.

10. Working Nomads
As the name says, Working Nomads is a place built for working nomads.
As with other remote job boards, development is the largest career category by far, so it can be a good place to find developers at a relatively affordable rate.
Also, you can find other remote workers like customer support, marketing assistants and virtual assistants but development is their strongest category.
They charge $149 for a single job post and you can expect a solid number of applications.
