Did you know that there are Facebook Groups dedicated to helping you find remote work?
Man-in-the-middle marketplaces like UpWork, Freelancer, Fiverr.com aren’t the only places available to find a remote freelance job.
Clients post their remote jobs and projects in places like Facebook Groups, Twitter, Reddit, community sites, forums, and many more places.
In this post, I’m going to share with you 10 Facebook Groups that you can join today for free to start looking for your next remote freelance project.
1) Remote Work & Jobs for Digital Nomads
This is one of the more popular remote work groups on Facebook with over 50,000 members and growing.
This group is more focused on general remote work and less on remote development work. But, there are so many members they get a lot of remote job posts.
The types of posts here include clients posting remote jobs, people posting that they’re looking for jobs, and remote-work related articles.
2) Remote Tech Jobs
This one is much smaller and focused on developers looking for remote development jobs. It has approximately 2,500 members.

3) REMOTE & TRAVEL JOBS
Remote & Travel Jobs is another big group with 36,000 members focused on general remote work.
Once again, the variety of posts you get is correlated with the number of members in the group. You get clients posting jobs, digital nomads asking for advice, and links to blog posts from what I’ve seen.
