I’ve had two remote jobs as a developer so far. I got the first one through a close friend and the second through a coworker from the first. The second job asked us to relocate and come into the office after a year so I quit. I’ve been living off savings overseas for the last year now with no job.

I understand networking is very important but I don’t seem to have any good connections at the moment. I do get messages from recruiters on linkedin as well as job boards like Dice, but many of these are for roles beyond my experience level or hybrid/in-office

        I got news for you. If you’re not a citizen of the country you’re located in and you don’t have a work visa for that country, you’re probably working illegally, whether or not your employer realizes. (Some exceptions for EU citizens, Canada, etc.)

    Hacker News has a monthly Whose Hiring thread which has a remote tag in the template. There’s a website that pulls all the comments out and makes it into a job board of sorts but I can’t remember what it is.

    The job boards are nice but I feel the remote-only boards are still super niche. I’ve had more success with a plain Google query that limits its results to some HR SaaS tool.

    For example: “Javascript remote site:jobvite.com” then filter for last 7 days.

    Of course that moves the goalpost to knowing which domains are a good fit. But that’s super dependent on your region and of course not all platforms follow this url pattern.
