Elpha

A great resource if you’re looking to join a small startup in the San Francisco area. They also offer a resume drop for helping you find relevant jobs. So far, I have not found the latter feature to be fruitful.

Remotive

A great list of purely remote jobs.

Candor

This list has been circulating like crazy and I’ve got to say, I am not a huge fan of this list. The hiring information is vague and not from verified sources. For the purpose of identifying job opportunities, if you are restricted by location, the list will be of no use.

Candor also offers a resume drop that (supposedly) will get your resume in front of recruiters at top tech companies like Google, Netflix, more buzzword companies, etc. So far, I have not found this feature to be fruitful.

Levels.FYI

A step up from the list provided by Candor. The sort by “location and role” feature will help save you time. I highly recommend, cross-referencing this list with Candor’s list for the most accurate hiring information.
