For people who prefer to work remotely, because they don’t want to be limited by geographic location, prefer to work in a distraction-free environment, or like the nomadic lifestyle, finding a remote job in technology or development can be challenging.
Where do you start looking? Who should you contact?
You could spend hours, days, even weeks, researching and gathering the information.
It sure would be a lot easier if someone already created a resource for you, info about the companies, what they do, and their company website.
That’s why the tweet my friend Jeff Chandler shared caught my attention.

That’s one big spreadsheet of companies offering remote job opportunities!
Thank you to Alexander Garcia for compiling it.
Remote Job Opportunities
When I dove into the remote jobs spreadsheet (Google Spreadsheet), I found a wide range of companies around the world offering remote job opportunities.
Development companies. Design companies. Online investing companies.
What I liked about the spreadsheet is that Alexander didn’t only list the name of the companies. He provided additional info about each company, including:
- Link to company website
- Company Twitter account, if they have one
- What the company does or produces (in 10 words or less)
- Company headquarter location (city, state, country)
- Company Chief Executive Officer (CEO) name
- Company CEO’s Twitter account
The spreadsheet lists the companies alphabetically.
And since it’s a spreadsheet created with permissions to make a copy for yourself, you can sort/filter the companies as you need for the specific requirements you have for a remote job.
What a great resource for job seekers!
As leader of several local WordPress, user experience, and web design meetup groups over the past 13 years, I regularly get asked by our members about remote job opportunities.
Not only for developers, but for people in digital marketing, customer support, and content strategy.
