Hello, I'm Filip Defar. I'm the maintainer of Europe Remotely.
Q: What is Europe Remotely and why did you start it?
Europe Remotely is a job board with a curated list of remote jobs that are available to developers living in Europe.
Back in 2015 I was searching for a remote job and got tired of trying to figure out which companies accept applicants that don't have US citizenship and live in a different time zone. I wished that there was a curated list of jobs that are available to European developers.
I could not find one - so I decided to start one myself.
Q: How do you make sure posted jobs are available to European developers?
As you probably know, there is no easy way to do this. All the jobs in Europe Remotely are manually curated.
I usually look for one of the following indicators in order to whitelist a company:
- Job posting states that they hire remotely and worldwide (or in Europe exclusively)
- Company's website state that they hire worldwide
- Company's website has listed remote team members from Europe
- I've contacted the company directly and they confirmed that they hire people from Europe
Q: What happened to the newsletter?
Newsletter proved to be both costly and inefficient (lots of unsubscribes, low retention) and it is currently disabled.
