Found this awesome list of tech companies hiring globally prepared by @yanirs. Check this out!


Established remote companies (hiring globally)

A curated list of established remote/distributed/virtual tech companies. The general idea is to include only established tech companies for which a significant portion of the workforce works remotely. Established means that each company is either well-funded or profitable with at least 50 employees, and tech means that they have more than a handful of software development roles. To make this list more useful to a global audience, companies that limit their hiring of engineers to a small set of rich countries are no longer included.

Pull requests are welcome. Please keep the list in alphabetical order.

Background: I started this list back in 2015 as a way of finding companies I may want to work with. This turned out well, as I've been working remotely as a data scientist since 2017. With remote work becoming mainstream since 2020, I've narrowed this list to focus on companies that hire globally. You can visit my website to read some of my reflections on remote data science. You can also check out this video of a talk I gave on a day in the life of a remote data scientist. TL;DR: Remote work is awesome! :)

Notes:

  • Web covers the usual front-end skills, Mobile usually means iOS and Android, and DevOps is listed for companies where this is one of the main focus areas.
  • Globally-competitive compensation means that the company doesn't use remote workers as a source of cheap labour. For compensation to be globally competitive, the company should offer packages that are comparable to market rates in major tech hubs.
  • ✉️ You can subscribe to job alerts by companies from this list on Job Dispatch.

Remote job search websites

Note: There seem to be hundreds of remote job aggregators, and new ones keep emerging. This is just a sample. If you want to add an aggregator, it should have more traffic than most of the above sites.
