Tech is a popular field to work in, in part because most tech professions pay well.
But where can you obtain opportunities with top tech firms?
Job boards are a good place to start. We compiled this list of the best tech job boards so you can easily find and apply for jobs in your area.
Following that, we’ll go over some job-application suggestions and other resources to help you find your next tech job.
The 24 Best Technology Job Boards to Know:
Dice was one of the first places I looked for prospects when I started working as a tech recruiter. It’s a very popular technology and IT job board, and it’s where I’d start.
It offers high-quality, high-paying jobs in a range of technical fields/disciplines. Hired is another excellent employment board that specializes in technology positions.
Angel. co is a huge website… Similar to LinkedIn for entrepreneurs and IT founders/workers.
They now also provide employment postings. In terms of what you can find on the site, it’s not only a tech job board, but it’s one of the greatest ways to quickly locate job leads in the companies you desire. It comes highly recommended.
4. The Ladders
The Ladders isn’t just a tech job board; it’s also the second place I searched as a tech recruiter among the job boards I examined once a week.
Why? It tends to attract higher-level employees (the job board began as “$100,000+ jobs for $100,000+ persons”).
They backtracked on the motto and exclusivity, but it still draws high-level job searchers, and thus high-level employers, such as many of the IT companies you’re presumably interested in working for.
If you follow technology at all, you’ve probably heard of the popular blog TechCrunch.
CrunchBoard, their technology job platform, has some outstanding tech and IT job posts.
You can search by geography and keyword, like with other job sites, to filter your results and discover just relevant job openings.
Remote Tech Jobs is a relatively new IT employment board that focuses on remote positions.
While many technology job sites include some remote employment, this site is a fantastic choice if you solely want to find positions that will allow you to work from anywhere.
While the site is new to the tech employment market, it already offers thousands of job openings in fields such as Android development, iOS, blockchain development, back-end, front-end, full-stack development, and more.
Note: If remote employment appeals to you, check out our complete list of remote job boards here.
TripleByte takes a unique approach to job searching as a software developer.
According to their website, they are also engineers. Rather than immediately placing you on a big, searchable job board, they ask you to register and then assist you:
- Showcase your abilities (even if you lack official credentials).
- Tell you what hiring managers do with your application and whether you’re likely to receive a response from a company.
- Provide job filters for engineers that go beyond location and job title.
This is a wonderful site to access the IT job market as long as you’re willing to create an account.
Mashable, a popular tech news website, also includes a job board. You can upload your resume and search for job ads based on keywords and location. You can also set up job alerts to get notified when a new posting that meets your criteria becomes available.
Uncubed is a job search website that features positions from both startups and Fortune 500 companies.
Software engineering, data engineering, data science, product management, UI/UX, and even sales and marketing positions are available.
This is worth a look for any tech job seeker, but it is especially valuable if you have skills that are not related to programming or engineering (for example digital marketing, software sales, etc.)
10. Authentic Jobs
Authentic Jobs has job opportunities for engineers as well as several other tech positions.
Everything from marketing and copywriting jobs to customer service opportunities can be found here.
On this job platform, almost anyone can find a suitable tech job.
Even if you’re not an engineer, this is worth a look. Don’t dismiss this definition because it involves other roles in technology. This is also a good option for engineering jobs.
While this isn’t the most flashy or modern-looking technology employment board out there, it does have some very solid job ads… Clicking on a listing will frequently take you directly to the employer’s website, where you may apply instantly and save time.
This is a great feature because you’re not wasting time applying without knowing if the job is still available, etc. (If a job is still listed on the company’s website, it’s much more probable that it’s still open and “active.”)
White truffle enables you to apply to over 7,500 tech jobs with a single application. To get started, you’ll need to create a “candidate account,” so this isn’t a job board where you can browse without registering.
However, if you’re prepared to register and put in the effort, it does contain a large number of high-quality employers.
13. IT Job Pro
According to our study, IT Employment Pro claims to be the “most popular tech job site.” However, they appear to be worth a look.
They have had several job ads in the previous 24 hours, and they include some very high-level positions, such as Vice President of Software Engineering.
They work in software architecture, programming, and a variety of other fields.
However, the employers featured on this site appear to be mostly large banks and other large organizations such as Sprint, IBM, and others.
So, if you’re seeking small, specialist start-ups for your next IT job, this may not be the greatest place to look.
This is an excellent employment board for tech professionals looking to join a true start-up. There are no large banks or corporations here!
They have plenty of opportunities in fields such as front-end development, full stack development, UI/UX, and even listings of firms searching for technical co-founders, among other things.
They also show pay for many of the jobs, such as equity percentages, etc.
15. YCombinator Jobs
Y Combinator’s modest yet effective technology and startup job board.
The design is similar to that of Craigslist: straightforward. However, the job posts are good, and selecting a listing usually brings you directly to the employer’s website, which we appreciate.
Users on this renowned startup website can present new goods and vote on the most interesting/exciting ones.
Product Hunt, thankfully, also offers a job board, which is a terrific location to locate positions with rising tech firms.
You can narrow your search by job category and area, or you can just look for remote employment.
Engineering jobs are listed on the website, but there are also design, product, and other opportunities.
This is another content site that ventured into the job board market and fared quite well.
Their technology-focused job board offers a clean, modern layout that makes it simple to search for and apply for computer jobs.
They list technological jobs in the United States, the European Union, and other regions.
18. Venture Loop
At the time of writing, Venture Loop, another legitimate start-up job board, has 61,000+ start-up jobs.
They have a range of start-up tech employment, many of which are for VC-funded startups.
This job platform allows you to apply to various top technology jobs in 60 seconds. They include top tech companies such as Foursquare, Jet, Airtable, SeatGeek, and others.
20. Built In
We originally learned about BuiltIn through its city-specific job sites, which allow job seekers to find tech opportunities in specific cities such as New York, Austin, and Seattle.
I’ve included a list of city-specific job search websites later in this article.
BuiltIn, on the other hand, has a wider, more generic job portal for all occupations in the tech field.
So, if you’re seeking your dream job and are willing to relocate, go to the main site.
The job posts are of good quality, with little chance of being false.
Software development/engineering is one of many categories.
And they have a continual flow of jobs, with dozens uploaded in the last hour (at the time that we checked their site).
It’s worth noting that the site appears to be entirely focused on US technology jobs, so it’s not the ideal place to look for EU technology opportunities. Check out #23 on our list for a more robust option for EU citizens.
21. Tech Fetch
IT Fetch is a fantastic website that lists over 100,000 tech jobs in the United States.
They also provide quick job alerts if you wish to upload your resume and get notified when new positions that match your skills are advertised.
They provide a “fast apply” tool that allows you to upload your résumé and send it to a company with a few clicks, but you must first create an account to apply for employment.
22. Work In Startups
This website is intended for EU job searchers. Here you’ll find a diverse range of technology positions for EU start-ups. Take note that this includes the United Kingdom. In London, for example, we saw a high number of tech jobs.
Honeypot is yet another technology employment platform focused on the EU. They function quite differently, however.
They characterize their website as follows: “Create a profile and allow firms to contact you.”
So, if you’re looking for a tech job in Europe and this seems interesting, we’d recommend it.
If you don’t live in the EU and/or don’t like the idea of uploading information and waiting for technology businesses to show interest in you, this isn’t the greatest option.
Do you want to relocate? This is the appropriate job site for you. This job board is solely dedicated to jobs offering relocation packages.
The job listings appear to be mostly centered on the EU, although they also include US IT employment.

Now that you know the finest job boards for finding IT jobs, here are a handful more tools that may be useful to you.

If you’re looking for your first job in technology with no prior experience, this will help you get hired.
- In addition to applying for employment and preparing for interviews, make sure you send “thank you” notes to everyone you meet after each interview. (Each requires its own email.) Sure, some recruiting supervisors are unconcerned, but others are, and you never know which is which!
This can really set you apart and demonstrate to employers that you care about their job, making them keener to hire you.
