Lately, working from home is becoming more than just a perk. Given current circumstances, the ability to maintain social distance from other employees is a crucial benefit. However, finding a work-from-home job is easier said than done, especially if you’ve never considered going this route before.

Luckily, there are plenty of legitimate and reliable job boards out there that focus entirely, or almost entirely, on remote jobs. You’ll find six of these job boards below. They’re all pretty generic (they feature a variety of different jobs). All are also updated frequently, so make sure to check them out daily. Who knows, you might just end up landing your dream job—and ditching the office for good.

JustRemote job board is super easy to navigate and is updated daily. It breaks down jobs by category (software development, marketing, design, customer service, management, and writing). Once you select the area you’re interested in, you can further narrow down the results by type of work (for example, copywriting or editing for writing jobs), position (permanent vs. contract), job origin, and technology stack (for software development). 

Dynamite Jobs, which connects bootstrapped companies with remote workers, claims that it’s the “most human” jobs board out there. Every job posted is guaranteed to be 100% remote and paid (so you don’t have to worry about accidentally applying for an “internship” position!) Also, since all jobs are scanned every 24 hours, you can forget wasting your time on expired listings. While anyone can browse and apply to the remote jobs listed on the site, signing up for a free account is totally worth it, as it’ll get you extra perks. These include weekly emails featuring positions that align with what you’re looking for and an opportunity to land unlisted jobs.

WeWorkRemotely was one of the first remote job boards, and it’s still one of the most popular. That’s not surprising considering that it lists a wide variety of jobs, in areas ranging from programming to finance and product management. New jobs are posted every day. You can also sign up for daily emails that will alert you of any new jobs in your niche.

This job board is another great resource, regardless of whether you’re looking for a job in customer service, data entry, teaching, or something else altogether. The board is updated regularly. However, those that don’t have the time or patience to check back daily can subscribe to the “Weekly Fresh Jobs Newsletter” (and choose whether they want to receive general or tech-based jobs). 

Skip the Drive aggregates jobs from some of the biggest job-listing sites like ZipRecruiter and CareerBuilder, saving you a ton of time. Impressively, this job board has perhaps the widest variety of job categories we’ve seen to date (like administrative, bilingual, case manager, and quality assurance). You can also search for jobs by keyword (for example, “SEO”) and choose to get email alerts when new listings match that specific keyword. 

AngelList is a job board that focuses on startup companies, some established and others brand new. Many of the jobs that appear here are classified as “Remote Ok,” meaning that the company isn’t against taking on remote workers. The best thing about this site, however, is that the jobs here are usually not listed anywhere else. Oh, and since all of the companies listed here are startups, your compensation package might include a small amount of equity in the company. However, you need to create a free account before you can view current vacancies.
