Tech is a popular industry to work in, partly because most tech jobs pay very well.
But where can you find jobs with great tech companies?
Well, job boards are one place you can start. We put together this list of the best tech job boards so you can quickly and easily find jobs in your city to apply to.
After this we’ll cover some tips for applying for jobs and other resources that’ll help you land your next job in tech.
While working as a tech Recruiter, Dice was one of the first places I looked to find candidates. It’s an extremely popular technology & IT job board, and is where I’d recommend beginning.
Hired is another great job board known for focusing on technology positions.
It features high quality, high-salary jobs for a variety of tech fields/disciplines.
Angel.co is a massive site… sort of like LinkedIn for entrepreneurs and tech founders/tech workers.
And now they offer job listings too.
So while it’s not only a tech job board in terms of what you can find on the site, it’s one of the best places to quickly find job leads in the companies you want. Highly recommended.
The Ladders isn’t only a tech job board but it’s the second place I looked as a tech recruiter, when it came to the job boards I scanned through once per week.
Why? It tends to attract higher level people (the job board started out as “$100K+ jobs for $100K+ people”).
They backed down from that slogan and exclusivity but it still attracts high-level job seekers, and therefore high-level employers like many of the tech companies you probably want to work for.
If you follow tech at all you might know about the popular blog TechCrunch.
Well, CrunchBoard is their technology job board and it lists some great tech and IT job postings.
Like most job boards, you can search by location and keyword to narrow down your results and only see relevant job opportunities.
Remote Tech Jobs is a newer IT job board specializing in remote positions.
While many technology job boards feature some remote roles, this site is a good choice if you only want to see positions that will give you complete location independence in your job search.
While relatively new to the tech job space, the site already has thousands of job openings across the IT job market in areas like Android development, iOS, blockchain development, back-end, front-end, full-stack development, and more.
Note: If remote work excites you, read our full list of remote job boards here.
TripleByte offers a different take on job hunting as a software developer.
According to their homepage, they’re engineers too. Rather than dropping you into a massive, searchable job board right away, they ask you to register and then they help you:
As long as you’re open to creating an account, this is a great site to access the tech job market.
Mashable, the popular site for tech news, also has a job board. You can post your resume and search job listings by keywords and city. You can also set up job alerts to be notified when a new posting fits your criteria.
Uncubed is a job search website featuring jobs from startups as well as Fortune 500 employers.
Positions include software engineering, data engineering, data science, product management, UI/UX, and even sales and marketing positions.
This is worth a look for any tech job seeker but is especially useful if you have a skill set that falls outside of programming/engineering (for example digital marketing, software sales, etc.)
Authentic Jobs features job postings for engineers, but also a variety of other positions in tech.
You can find everything from marketing and copywriting positions to customer support positions here.
So practically anyone can find a suitable tech job on this job board.
If you’re an engineer, this is still worth a look. Don’t read this description and write this off just because it includes other roles in tech. This is also a solid choice for engineering positions.
While this isn’t the flashiest or most modern-looking technology job board out there, there are some very good job listings on here… and clicking a listing often takes you directly to the employer’s website so you can apply directly and save time.
This is a feature we love, because you’re not wasting time applying without knowing if the job is even still open, etc. (It’s a lot more likely that a job is still open and “active” if it’s still posted on the company’s website).
White truffle allows you to apply to 7,500+ tech jobs via one application. You will need to create a “candidate account,” to get started, so this isn’t a job board that you can browse without registering.
However, if you’re willing to register and put in the time, it does feature many high-quality employers.
IT Job Pro claims to be the “most popular tech job site,” which simply isn’t true based on our research. However, they do seem to be worth checking out.
They have multiple postings within the last 24 hours, and they feature some very high level jobs like Vice President of Software Engineering.
They have jobs in software architecture, programming, and much more.
However, the employers featured on this site primarily seem to be large banks, and other huge corporations like Sprint, IBM, etc.
So if you’re looking for small, niche start-ups for your next tech job, this job board might not be the best choice.
This is a great job board for tech workers who want to join a true start-up. No big banks and corporations here!
They’ve got plenty of jobs in areas like front-end development, full stack development, UI/UX, and even listings of employers looking for technical co-founders, etc.
And they show compensation for a lot of the jobs, including equity percentage, etc.
A simple, but very good technology and start-up job board by Y Combinator.
The layout looks a bit like craigslist: Ultra-simple and plain. But the job postings are good, and clicking a listing takes you right to the employer’s website usually, which we love.
This popular startup website allows users to showcase new products and vote on the most interesting/exciting.
Fortunately, Product Hunt also has a job board, which is a great place to find jobs with growing tech companies.
You can filter by job category and location, or select remote positions only.
Tech job listings on the website include engineering but also design, product, and more.
This is another content site that got into the job board business and did a pretty good job of it.
Their technology-focused job board has a nice modern interface and is easy to search and use to find tech jobs.
They feature technology jobs in the US, EU, and other locations.
Another true start-up job board, Venture Loop features 61,000+ start-up jobs at the time of writing this.
They feature a variety of start-up tech jobs, many for VC-funded companies.
This job site lets you apply to multiple top technology jobs in 60 seconds.
They feature top tech firms like Foursquare, Jet, Airtable, SeatGeek and more.
We first came across BuiltIn through their city-specific job sites, allowing job seekers to find tech jobs in one city like NYC, Austin, Seattle, and more.
I’ve listed those city-specific job search sites later in this article.
But BuiltIn has a larger, general job portal for all jobs in the tech industry.
So if you’re looking for your dream job and are flexible in location, use the main site.
The job postings are high-quality without much risk of fake job listings.
Categories include software development/engineering and much more.
And they have a steady flow of jobs with many positions posted in the last hour (at the time that we checked their site).
Note that the site seems 100% focused on US technology jobs, so this isn’t the best site to find EU technology jobs. Check #23 on our list for a stronger option for EU residents.
Tech Fetch is a great site featuring 100,000+ tech jobs across the US.
They also offer instant job alerts if you want to upload your resume and be notified when new jobs are posted that match your skills.
They offer a “quick apply” feature to upload your resume and submit it to a company with just a few clicks, but you will need to register an account to do apply to any jobs.
This site is for EU job seekers. You’ll find a good mix of technology jobs for EU start-ups here.
Note this includes the UK, too. We saw a large number of tech jobs in London, for example.
Honeypot is another EU-focused technology job board. They work a bit differently, though.
Here’s how they describe their site: “Create a profile and let companies apply to you.”
So if you’re a tech job seeker in Europe and that sounds interesting, we’d recommend this.
If you’re not in the EU, and/or you don’t love the idea of uploading info and waiting for technology companies to show interest in you, then this isn’t the best choice.
Want to relocate? This is the job site for you. This job board is exclusively focused on jobs with relocation packages.
The job listings seem to be primarily EU-focused, but it does include US tech jobs, too.
If you’re not satisfied with the list above, here are some additional job sites that are smaller and focused on specific categories of jobs in tech.
These IT/tech job boards are focused on niches like Ruby, Python, Android, as well as a few job boards for specific geographic regions.
And if you’re on the creative side of the technology industry – in areas like design, marketing, user interface, etc, keep reading because we’ve included those too.
Here’s the full list of other tech job boards…
We just published a list of the best remote job boards HERE, and many of them are focused on tech positions.
If you’re a designer, marketer, copywriter or other “digital creative” looking for the best job boards, some of the websites above will help you. However, some are geared heavily toward programmers, data scientists, and other information technology workers.
Tech job boards for designers, marketers, and digital creatives:
Okay, now that you know the best job boards to find tech positions, here are a couple of resources that might help you.
Some job boards will give you a chance to provide a cover letter. Here’s how to do it in a way that’ll set you apart and get you the interview:
2. If you’re looking for your first job in tech, here’s an article on how to find a job without any work experience.
This will help you get hired if you’re looking for your first job in tech without any past experience.
3. Along with applying for jobs and preparing for interviews, make sure you’re sending “thank you” emails after each interview, to each person you met. (A separate email for each). Sure, some hiring managers don’t care, but some do, and you never know which is which!
This really can set you apart and show employers you care about their job, which makes them more eager to hire you.
4. Next, here are 8 tough brain-teaser interview questions asked by large tech companies like Apple, Google and others.
While some companies have abandoned this type of question in tech interviews, some still ask them. So that article will help you mentally prepare for the types of questions they might throw at you.
5. Here’s how to create the best elevator pitch possible for when they ask you “Tell me about yourself” in the interview. Usually this is one of the first things they’ll ask when you get on the phone with them (in tech or ANY industry really), so it’s something you definitely want to be ready for.
