Founded in 2017, Remote.com uses machine learning technology to connect more than 2.5 million professionals with remote and freelance jobs that suit their skills, experience, and personality traits. The site is completely free for freelancers and job seekers to use. Employees can choose between basic, premium, and elite job listing services to promote their listings.
Remote.com is completely free for freelancers and job seekers. In most cases, it is also free for employers, unless they want to use the site’s premium features. There are no upfront costs, no monthly costs, and no contracts. It is free to post a basic job post, which includes a listing for 30 days, a company profile, basic AI-powered outreach, and basic recruiting tools. The cost for hiring a freelancer on Remote.com is 10% of the project cost, paid with secure escrow payments.
For $295, recruiters can access Remote.com’s premium features including an advanced search engine, candidate contact information, the candidate’s desired compensation, and ten times the exposure and applicants.
The company’s full-service recruiting program is free to join, with custom pricing due only after a hire is made. In this program, employers work with a dedicated recruiter to source and identify optimal candidates for a position. This includes a consultation during which the employer can identify and share with the recruiter his or her desired attributes or qualifications that the search engine might not catch. Employees who use Elite Placement only interview the top 5 percent of candidates, make a hire in four weeks or less, and are ensured a 90-day satisfaction guarantee on each hire. Remote.com recruiters review candidates and provide feedback, schedule vetted interviews, and check provided references to save the employer time and energy.
Remote.com is accessible to job seekers and recruiters in all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and the Virgin Islands.
Employers should be aware that “Remote.com does not inquire into the backgrounds of its users or attempt to verify the statements of its users” as stated in the Terms of Service. The hiring party is responsible for conducting background checks, reference checks, or other due diligence deemed necessary before a hire. The exception to this is Remote.com’s Elite Placement Program; with this option, a Remote.com recruiter will check references for the employer.
