With more and more companies being open to employees working remotely, many people have started looking to transition away from jobs that require a commute.

However, not all job boards are great for finding remote career opportunities. If you exclusively want remote work, looking for remote job opportunities on sites that include all manner of jobs can bog down your search process.

The Ascent compiled some of the best remote work job boards available, with these six being the standouts.


If you want to pick up more independent work in a variety of fields, Upwork lists projects that clients are looking for someone to complete. This provides you with clear information on what your rate of pay will be, as well as the length of the assignment.
