We Work Remotely is an online job posting site that connects job seekers with remote work and employers with skilled professionals looking for remote work.
The company started operations in 2011. Back then, they were one of the first job boards dedicated to remote work. They’ve grown steadily since to become one of, if not the, biggest online job posting platforms.

About We Work Remotely
We Work Remotely (WWR) says they are “The world’s largest platform for finding and listing remote jobs”.
They get more than 230,000 unique visitors a month searching for remote jobs and post more than 500 new positions every month. So, whether you’re looking for a remote position or have a role to fill, WWR has the platform and audience to get you a huge amount of exposure.
How We Work Remotely Works
The platform is free for job seekers and charges a fixed price per 30-days to post a job listing.
To post a job, you simply fill out a job listing form. You’ll need the following basic information:
- Job title
- Job type (Full/Part-time)
- Your company information
- Instructions on how candidates can apply
- Job description
If you’re new to posting jobs, there’s a skill to creating a good listing. I recommend checking out some of the other listings to get an idea of how much/little information you should include.
Once you’ve created your listing, you can preview it. This allows you to see what the visitors to WWR will see.
The final step is to fill out your payment details for your job listing to go live.
If you’re a candidate looking for work, you can search for available positions by category or keyword to narrow down your search. You can then click a listing to see the job description and how to apply.
We Work Remotely is a job posting platform for remote work. They enable businesses to post jobs for remote positions they have available and help job seekers find their ideal positions.
That’s the extent of the services they offer; pretty straightforward.
There’s a bias toward tech-related jobs and full-time work, but softer skills and part-time or contract work are also on the site.
Plans and Pricing
It costs $299 per month to post a job on We Work Remotely.
For this, you get a standard listing that’ll be live for 30 days.
If you want to make your listing stand out from the crowd, however, you’ll need to buy one of the following options:
- Good – $59 – Your ad will be highlighted in yellow, shared in the WWR slack channel and on social media, and sent out to their mailing list.
- Better – $89 – You get all of the pros of the Good add-on, with the addition of being able to display your company logo.
- Best – $139 – You get all of the pros of the Better add-on, with the addition of being given a featured email placement and pinned for 7 days on the front page.
WWR says that using the Better add-on gives an ad 2x the visibility, and the Best add-on gives 4x the visibility. So, it does seem like it’s worth the extra bucks if reaching a wider audience is your goal.
For what it’s worth, browsing the front page it does look like most advertisers are opting for one of the above options.
We Work Remotely Alternatives
For an alternative online job board, you might want to consider posting your job on Dynamite Jobs. Their basic listing is free, so you don’t have much to lose.
Depending on the role you’re hiring for, you might check out a site like Hire My Mom, which as you might guess is more geared toward work-from-home moms.
