7 Unique and Niche Job Boards to Find the Perfect Workplace for You

0

When looking for a new job, you usually go to the biggest job boards like Monster, Indeed, and LinkedIn Jobs. But given the number of ads here, finding what you want is like looking for a needle in a haystack. Recently, there has been a rise in niche job boards that list select jobs at companies with specific goals or work cultures that appeal to particular candidates.

Some cater to businesses with social impact, while others focus on diverse and inclusive work cultures. Also, you will find jobs where you can work anonymously in a remote location or jobs where the company is willing to relocate you to a new country. Check them out; you might just find your dream job.

1. Anon Friendly (Web): Job Board for Working Under a Pseudonym

You might want to work without revealing your real name for several reasons. The basic reason is to protect your privacy and security, especially to protect you from online doxxing. Other than that, you might want to go part-time without your current employer knowing. Some experts believe that working under a pseudonym will be the norm within the next five years.

Anon Friendly is an ad job site where you can work without revealing your true identity. Most of these jobs are remote, of course, but there’s a wide variety in the nature of the job, from engineering to community managers. The interface is quite simple and normal, and the site is fairly new, so there aren’t a lot of ads right now. But it’s still a good start.

Developer Adriaan Bouman didn’t just want to take another job. Instead, Bouman wanted to work on a project that has a meaningful impact on the planet or humanity. This sparked the idea for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a site that organizes job postings from organizations that want to make a social impact.

The jobs are divided into several categories that you can filter, such as Clean Energy, Gender Equality, Climate Action, Zero Hunger, No Poverty, Clean Water, Peace and Justice , and many others. Choose what you want and you can search further in these filters. For example, you can filter the list to only search for remote work or be open to onsite work. SDG is simple to use and you can also sign up for a newsletter to receive job alerts in your favorite niche.


3. GoodJobs (Web): Engineering jobs to make the world a better place

Similar to SDG, GoodJobs also curates job postings from companies trying to change the world and make it better. The main difference is that GoodJobs only focuses on engineering jobs.

It’s a fairly simple site, with the only option being to filter the jobs board by remote and non-remote jobs. As an aggregator, the listings link to one of the top job boards where the original requirement was listed. And don’t accept the header that says these jobs focus on climate change and food insecurity; there are a variety of social impact causes listed on GoodJobs.

4. Remotewide (Web): Remote jobs with the same salaries regardless of location

The remote job market is split into two salary philosophies. Some companies believe that the candidate’s salary should reflect their cost of living (which is different depending on the region or country). Others believe contestants should be paid based on their production and that where they live should not affect pay.

Remotewide is a job site that collects ads for the latter. All jobs on the site are remote work-only and promise location-independent compensation. Note that companies may still require you to be based in the US or Europe, but this is generally more about organizational structure and tax implications.

5. 4-Day Workweek (Web): Find Jobs for 4-Day Work Weeks

Many companies old and new are moving from the traditional 5 day work week to a 4 day work week. You would still work around 30-36 total hours per week, but for longer periods over four days to get an extra day off. 4 Day Week only organizes 4 day jobs per week to give you more personal time.

The jobs are divided into four categories: engineering, data and analytics, product and UX, and marketing. You can filter jobs by adding your current location (North America, South America, Oceania, Asia, Africa, Europe) and searching for designations. You can also filter by hours worked (over 30 or under 30) and whether you want remote or hybrid remote work.


If you can’t find something that meets your needs on this website, you can always try rescheduling your current job. The technique of frontloading your workweek is an effective way to transition to a 4-day job.

6. Relocate.me (Web): Find a job that helps you move to a new country

Several companies will offer to pay your relocation costs if you wish to move to another country to seek employment. Relocate.me displays job postings for such work opportunities in various technology fields.

The jobs listed are mostly for developers or engineers, but sometimes you’ll find opportunities for UX design and other tech-related fields. You can filter the list by country, including Australia, Belgium, Croatia, Estonia, Germany, Japan, Spain, Netherlands, Austria, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Singapore, Sweden, United Kingdom and United States.

Relocate.me also offers handy tools like a net salary calculator to see what kind of salary you can expect in certain countries. It also offers various resources and advice based on moving with partners, children or pets.

7. EqualOpportunity.Work (Web): Jobs at companies that promote diversity and inclusion

Companies increasingly tend to note in their hiring messages that they celebrate workplace diversity and believe in equal opportunity. If these are essential parameters in the work culture you are looking for, EqualOpportunity.Work will only show jobs from these companies.

Currently, job sites have nearly 10,000 ads; before you ask, all of these are remote only. Unfortunately, there is no easy way to sort or filter jobs by categories or other parameters. Your only option is to try the search function, which lists jobs in chronological order from the last posting.

Judging a job site based on recent postings

With so many different and niche job boards to browse, how do you decide which ones to trust? A good rule of thumb is to see how many recent job postings the board has. Companies usually post jobs on several of these forums, so you don’t want to waste your time applying to an already full list. And a job site that posts new jobs usually removes vacancies.
