New website refresh + New Features

Alistair Tweedie @alistairtweedie

I’ve been working on the new refresh of the Design Remotely website -

The Goal? To deliver on the feedback I’ve been receiving from my subscribers. Mainly, “can we have a list of Remote Companies that hire designers please?” Yes, you absolutely can!

🎨 Redesign

Feedback welcome as always :)

New Features

🏢 Companies

I’ll be growing this over time as well as taking suggestions. Each company has a profile displaying information about Benefits & Perks, Interview Processes as well as various other company details.

📮 Post a job

You can now post contract jobs to the community that include the length of contract and budgets. There was some confusion around posting a job in the past but hopefully this is much clearer now.

  • Sponsor a newsletter. Each newsletter has one sponsorship slot that will be dedicated to you and you product.
