Companies tend to look for a person that can do a certain job. E.g. "Node engineer", "Data scientist"
Few companies will look at your profile if you don't apply directly to a position.
Zero will do if you can't say what it is you want.
Public work is gold. Blog posts, even e.g. StackOverflow or Dribbble profile can be very good.
For jobs like product mngr this is hard 🤷♀️
Companies tend to overstate what they are looking for vs. what they'll hire.
This is the confidence gap that hurts everyone except white men, essentially.
If you work from a country @remote supports, we're always happy to help you with all legal / compliance stuff. But make sure the company you're applying to can accomodate to your timezone - or you to theirs.
Young startups tend to be high risk + high upside (chance of large upside for early employees is slim, of course, but it happens).
More mature companies risk is lower, upside can still be high - but not endlessly as with e.g. a breakout startup.
There are many places to find remote work. The best way is to follow companies here and get in early once they open a position.
Every job site on the world now has options for remote work. I don't need to tell you how to search.
1. Write a really short email with a clear ask. 2 sentences
2. Include relevant links
@remote is making a dent in this, but lots to do.
1. Double check your spelling
2. Never lie
3. PREPARE => If you don't know what the company you're applying to does, you won't get a job there.
