We Work Remotely, the web’s largest remote community, launched a new website design as a re-commitment to advocating for remote work.
Since 2013, We Work Remotely (WWR) was one of the first online remote job boards to surface and challenge other companies to pay attention to remote work. Gallup’s 2017 report states that the number of American employees working remotely rose to 43 percent in 2016 from 39 percent in 2012.
“Back in the early days, one of our major initiatives was expanding outside of the Programming sector and incorporating Sales & Marketing, Finance & Legal, and Business & Management,” says Matthew Hollingsworth, Head of Operations. “As technology and the world continues to advance, we intuitively knew that positions in these categories would also benefit from remote structures.”
Case in point: Stripe recently announced their latest hub will be 100% remote.
For WWR’s extensive community of over 2,500,000 monthly visitors, the website features a new aesthetic, improvements in the job posting experience and candidate screening, and additional clarity around timezone restrictions when searching for opportunities, allowing remote work to be more accessible.
“By increasing the real estate across the site for employers, this boosts the chance for seekers to find their dream remote job,” explains Matthew. “The re-design symbolizes our ongoing commitment to invest in remote work. As early adopters, we’ve observed the rise of remote work and grown along with it at the same time. We’ve learned so much along the way. We’d like to share this with our awesome community through initiatives like this redesign and other resources, like our blog and podcast.”
WWR is offering a $50 discount on all remote job postings & future renewals for the next 24 hours. Offer ends Fri. May 24, 2019 @ 11:59 PM PST.
