Websites to find work from home Jobs hiring during the COVID-19 Crisis

 If you’re one of the many worrying about making money right now, finding a work from home job could be your saving grace. While there are many sites that advertise work from home opportunities—both legitimate and less so—the operative word here in the job listings is “remote.”

The following resources focus specifically on remote job listings. Keep in mind that some of these platforms are for freelance jobs, which means you’ll be responsible for paying taxes and won’t qualify for the usual company benefits like health insurance, retirement plans, etc. These could be good gigs to get into for the meantime.

Like any job search, you’ll want to have a polished resume and be ready to go on the hunt for work. These 10 platforms will help you get started:

1. FlexJobs

FlexJobs is one of the largest and most popular platforms to find remote work. Members can search for remote jobs by career field. One of the most helpful aspects of FlexJobs’ platform is it shows a posting date for each job, as well as whether the job is full-time, part-time or freelance.

Accessing the website’s job listings does require a membership fee, which can be purchased on a weekly, monthly or yearly basis. FlexJobs is currently offering a discount on its membership prices up to 50% off by using the code JOB at checkout. This discount is valid now through April 30.

2. Remotive

Remotive is an online job board that lists software development, customer service, product development jobs and more. Accessing Remotive’s job board is free, and all listings have a posting date and redirect to the company’s internal job post if you’re interested in applying.

3. FreeUp

FreeUp is a platform for freelancers with expertise in the e-commerce industry, in tasks like customer service, social media management, SEO, email marketing, data entry and more. Candidates are put through a vetting process and interviews before being granted entry into the platform. Applying requirements include a resume, portfolio, internet speed test results and information about your services.

FreeUp could be a tough platform to gain entry into, but freelancers who are accepted will have access to basic level, mid-level and expert level jobs that can pay from $5 per hour to more than $75 per hour. Additionally, payments are made on a weekly basis.

4. Boldly

Boldly connects individuals with work from home positions that are W-2 positions, meaning those who are hired will be treated as staff employees and receive Boldly company benefits, rather than just being contractors. Both part-time and full-time positions are available, but Boldly requires workers to be available during normal business hours and commit to 20 hours of work per week.

Individuals interested in the Boldly platform will have to apply and go through an interview before being matched with relevant businesses. To qualify, individuals need at least seven years of work experience within their professional industry or field of speciality, as well as a fast and reliable internet connection and strong time management skills. After being accepted, Boldly matches its candidates with the appropriate businesses based on skill set and experience.

5. is a free online job board that posts jobs for various remote jobs, including developers, customer service representatives, designers, sales professionals and editors. Job listings range from part-time to full-time and redirect to the companies’ internal job posts if you’re interested in applying.

6. Outsourcely

Outsourcely is a platform that connects remote freelancers with companies looking for part-time and full-time workers, ranging from customer support and data entry, to project managers, virtual assistants and email marketers. One major advantage of Outsourcely is that it works with companies who are looking for long-term workers, rather than those hiring for short-term projects. Creating a profile is free, and once a profile is completed, users have the ability to look at job postings.

7. We Work Remotely

We Work Remotely posts both full-time and part-time remote jobs across a wide range of industries, including sales and marketing, design, writing, teaching and more. Accessing the online job board is free. Additionally, users can sign up to have new listings in specified industries sent directly to their email inbox daily.

8. Dice

Dice is a free online job board specifically for those in or seeking tech careers. Job listings include full-time and contract work. Dice offers users the ability to search by job title, skill (such as Django or JavaScript) and category (remote jobs is a category). Additionally, users can create free profiles to receive personalized job listings based on their preferences and skill sets.

9. Textbroker

Textbroker is a free job platform specifically for writers looking for gig work in content marketing, including work for corporations, small- business owners, e-commerce and social media. To have access to the platform, prospective users have to complete a short article that will rate their writing skills. Once completed, Textbroker lets users choose their own gigs on their own time, and completed work will be paid weekly (as soon as $10 or more is earned).

10. Remote Jobs Club

Remote Jobs Club is a biweekly email newsletter featuring remote jobs throughout a variety of industries, including marketing, content writing and UX jobs. If the idea of pouring through hundreds of jobs listings overwhelms you, signing up for their newsletter can cut back on the work you’ll need to put in to find remote jobs.
