Where to find tech work online in 2020?

I’ve created a compiled a list of jobsites that have served me in the last 10 years for finding new opportunities in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and remote online.

Generic

Privileged Jobsites

Slack

  • Kubernetes Career Slack channel (#kubernetes-careers)
  • AWS Careers Slack channel (#jobs)

United Kingdom 🇬🇧

I have lived in London for 3 years and can personally vouch for these jobsites.

United States

  • www.dice.com (Not great for non-US citizens to find work, only to get 100 daily spam messages by Indian recruitment agencies)

Remote Work

  • www.angel.co/jobs
  • www.reddit.com/r/forhire
  • weworkremotely.com 
  • I will complete this list, but there seem to have around 500 applications per job listed on these remote jobsites, so they are not always the best way to find a new position.
  • Google Search: site reliability engineer site:lever.co (filter by last 1 month) Google Searches will help you find a lot of open opportunities with searches like this.

Hacker News 

The focus on Hacker News isn’t on making cheap money, but on high-level technologies, so in my experience the quality is extremely high.

The Netherlands 🇳🇱 Major jobsites

I’m Dutch! Unfortunately a lot of recruiters don’t seem to have direct contact with the hiring managers and many companies refuse to use recruitment companies. It’s probably because of cultural reasons, but that makes working with recruiters in Holland less useful.

The Netherlands 🇳🇱 Smaller freelance jobsites

This is a pretty outdated list. I forgot which of these sites was the best. It seems a lot of people seem completely focused on making money or saving money on the smaller sites.So there isn’t always a great focus on quality over money. The Dutch recruitment market is a bit messy. Often the recruiters don’t have any contacts within the company they are hiring for.

Building a solid online reputation with Github or a YouTube channel will also work wonders.
