Dynamite Jobs is an online platform aggregating and sharing the best remote jobs from more than 300 different sources every week, as well as taking job listings directly through their site.
If you’re a looking for a position where you can work remotely, or you’re a business looking to hire a remote worker, you can either browse the listings on their site or speak with a member of their team for help finding a position/candidate that meets your requirements.
About Dynamite Jobs
Dan Andrews and Ian Schoen are the founders behind Dynamite Jobs. They say they started the remote worker job marketplace to solve their own remote hiring problems they had at the time.
They wanted more staff to grow their e-commerce business and knew they needed to look outside of traditional in-house hires.
The idea started by forming a private community of entrepreneurs and building a network of professionals, which led to business owners reaching out to them to help find remote professionals.
They started making connections between businesses and remote workers within their community, and as demand increased, they officially launched Dynamite Jobs in 2017 to create a central online platform where businesses can find remote workers, and vice versa.
Although the candidates could be located anywhere in the world as they work remotely, Dynamite Jobs say about 75% of their candidates are located in North America.
How Dynamite Jobs Works
Dynamite Jobs isn’t an open marketplace where anyone can apply for the jobs. Candidates are screened and interviewed by their team before being added to their database and mailing list.
This means Dynamite Jobs are able to put forward 3-5 candidates as soon as they receive a job listing from the candidates they have on their database. With more candidates available if you don’t find your hire from this initial bunch or candidates that find your listing.
You can browse their job listings by selecting the skills you want from a remote worker, whether they are full or part-time, and specifying where about in the world they are based.
Alternatively, you can fill out a form and have a member of their team contact you to discuss what you’re looking for and have them help narrow down the candidates they have on their books.
If you’re advertising a remote position, their team will help you put together your job listing to maximize your chance of finding the right candidate.
They say they already have a database with more than 10,000 remote job seekers and are confident you will fill your position or will return your fee for you.
Plans and Pricing
It’s free to post a job or freelance gig on Dynamite Jobs. They’ll keep your posting on the homepage for 30 days and you can direct candidates directly to your application process.
However, if you’re looking to move faster and get greater exposure for your gig, you’ll probably want to opt for the $197 “Boosted Listing” option.
With this option, Dynamite Jobs will send you the top 3 candidates in their database within 48 hours, and you’ll also be featured to an audience of 10,000 remote job seekers via email.
Dynamite Jobs has also added a done-for-you recruiting service, in which they’ll help you write your job listing and description, screen applicants, record video interviews, and check references.
It’s free for remote workers to apply for positions.
They offer a money back guarantee if you don’t find a hire from their site, so you can look at it as a low-risk investment.
Dynamite Jobs Alternatives
To connect with remote workers, you might consider similar job boards like HireMyMom or FreeeUp. Both have a similar vetting process for candidates, but I think you’ll find the biggest difference with Dynamite Jobs is the mindset of the workers. The site seems to attract a younger, hungrier, more entrepreneurial audience of applicants.
For more general virtual assistant support, you might consider a company like Time Etc, which doesn’t charge the $500 upfront matching fee.
