A few places you can find Golang remote jobs

Last updated 15. April 2016

                "Go is an open source programming language that makes it easy to build simple, reliable, and efficient software (golang.org)".
                
Go (or golang) is a simple, general purpose programming language that excels at writing things like backend services. It's the language used to make Docker, among many other things.

I'm currently using Golang almost exclusively and I'm looking for remote freelance jobs. I've therefor compiled this list for my own sake, but I guess it can be useful to others as well.

Websites specifically for Golang

We Love Golang

http://www.welovegolang.com/jobs/search?q=remote

This is probably the site with the most Go specific listings. Many jobs in Europe and the US. It seems like searching for "remote" is not entirely reliable, so double check the results before getting too excited about a job :). This site also has developer profiles, and you can get listed just by tweeting them.

Golangprojects.com

http://www.golangprojects.com/golang-remote-jobs.html

Also a good place to find Go-specific job listings. This site also have developer profiles, but registering here is more work since they require more information. Seems like most of the jobs are full time at the moment. Remote jobs can sometimes be US-specific.

Websites specifically for remote jobs

RemoteOK

https://remoteok.io/remote-golang-jobs

Great site with reposts jobs from other places. You can often click the "Apply for job" to get to the website with the original listing.

Remotely Awesome Jobs

https://www.remotelyawesomejobs.com/tags/golang?q=

Similar to the above, but fewer listings.

FlexJobs.com

https://www.flexjobs.com/search?search=golang&location=

Remote / telecommute jobs site.

Jobspresso

https://jobspresso.co/browsejobs/#s=1
There's a couple of listings here, try searching for "golang" or maybe "go".

Golang Forums etc

Gophers Slack channel

https://gophers.slack.com/messages/golang-jobs/

The Gophers Slack is quite active and has a separate "Jobs" channel.

The Golang forum

https://forum.golangbridge.org/c/jobs

The Golang-Jobs Google+ Community

https://plus.google.com/communities/116819843904802051830

Not super active, 2 postings in the four first months of 2016.

Hacker News Monthly Postings

http://hnhiring.me/

Hacker News has monthly "Ask HN: Who is hiring?" posts. This is an easy interface view and search this posts, you can filter on words etc. More geeky than most job listing sites =)

Others checked

Remotecoder.io
No Go jobs when I checked.

WeWorkRemotely.com
No Go jobs when I checked.

Working Nomads
No Go jobs when I checked.

Whf.io
Hard to know for sure, but I could not find any Go jobs when I checked.

Job listings at Artic Startup
Startups in the nordics. No Go jobs when I checked.

Toptal
"Exclusive" site for freelancers. Don't know if there's demand for Go programmers here, they don't list their openings. Last I checked (in 2014?) the onboarding process was very automated and not that great. You could not do it in Go, but maybe that has changed.
