10 Websites Where You Can Find Web Design and Developement Jobs

0

When I begun my web design freelance career and had not any faithful or returning client if mine, I was often in the position of job/project searcher, so I browsed through many sites searching for a job or project. During these experiences, I have collected an handful of job listing sites, not bidding ones (which I hate) and I have listed them below for you, with respective description for each one. I hope you will find this post helpful and I will you all the best with your freelance or full-time job.

1. Freelance Switch Jobs

The perfect job listing site for every freelancer. It is a very rich job listing site. It is a little different form other jobs listing site as there the employer lists the advert for free whereas the freelancer has to pay a little money per month to have access at the contact of the employer, just $7 per month. They say this makes it possible for less freelancers to apply for jobs, but I am afraid this statement has made to many to subscribe. Make a try yourself.

2. WordPress Jobs

Perhaps this is not the most appropriate to be listed the second, but it has helped me a lot to find many projects, so I am paying her (metaphor) back. You will find there a lot of WordPress-oriented jobs. I presume that every web designer and developer knows WordPress, is aware that it is invading the web. There you can find programming and designing jobs, which means that it is not a must to know WordPress very well, to find a job there.

3. Authentic Jobs

Authentic Jobs is a great place to find freelance and full-time web related jobs. They are quite expensive on companies that list their job requirements there and my own impression is that there you can find great jobs and you must be a well prepared web person to chosen. They say that since 2005 they have been listing in their site jobs form big and well known companies such as t MSNBC.com, The Motley Fool, Turner Sports Interactive, ESPN, Phinney Bischoff, Garmin, Sony BMG and many others.

4. Fresh Web Jobs

This is another good web jobs listing site. There, expect the fact that you can find good jobs you can even register and make this as a job central where you can collect jobs from other sites that you are interested. As I use Google Reader for this purpose, I did not explore completely this feature, but if you are interested you can do it yourself. If not, Make sure to bookmark the page in your favorite way so you can come and search for jobs whenever you need or like to.

5. Krop.Com

Krop is a neat job listing site, not saying much of itself in word, leads you to deduct its importance and power form its content and look. You will find there a long list of web jobs that vary from web designers and developers to directors of tech and so on. You won’t want to miss a bit of it.

6. Smashing Magazine Jobs

At Smashing Magazine jobs you can find a proper job for yourself. It lists quite professional jobs, the kind of Krop does. It is part of a great online design-oriented magazine and you can profit even of the its content. You do not have any reason to miss it.

7. SitePoint Marketplace

At SitePoint’ Marketplace, a great website for designer and developers, there is a section named ‘Looking to Hire’. There are frequent web jobs. I have found many jobs there and I have found it to have great potential. Do not forget to subscribe even here an see if it is good for you.

8. ReadWriteWeb Jobs

The Read/WriteWeb job board provides job opportunities for Web Technology and New Media professionals, at startups and tech firms all over the world. At least this is what they say. If you find yourself very professional and are looking for a professional carrier in a big tech firm, go there and have a look.

9. Slashdot Jobs

They say that they connect 9 million IT professionals and developers on Slashdot, SourceForge, Linux.com, Freshmeat, IT Managers Journal and Newsforge with the companies looking for the brightest minds in the technology industry. Very impressive; don’t lose the chance.

10. 37signals Jobs

They say that companies such as The New York Times, CNET, Facebook, Adobe, Trek, and American Express use their job board. Another chance not to lose. Go there and explore it yourself.

What I do:

I have subscribed to the RSS of all this sites and read them every time I need another project. When I find something I for me, I just apply; it is simple.

You can make this list longer adding sites at the comment section and contributing to the community. Or you can give me a feedback about how you found the article; it would be very encouraging form me.

    Very good list, some ones I had not come across there.

    After being frustrated with browsing hundreds of job boards I set up a website that aggregates feeds in one place to try and consolidate all of the job boards on the net. I will be looking into adding the above sites.

    RSS is definately a useful tool for a freelancer.
