If you’ve been searching for a work-from-home job, it’s likely that you’ve come across FlexJobs, one of the more prominent job online boards for remote positions.

Founded in 2007, FlexJobs is a subscription service that’s focused on telecommuting jobs, including freelance, flexible and part-time opportunities.

FlexJobs is a legitimate job search website — not a scam — with an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau.

FlexJobs: What You Need To Know Before You Sign Up

In addition to focusing only on flexible jobs, FlexJobs stands out from its free competitors in that a real person reviews each job posting to make sure it’s legitimate.

Thinking about signing up for FlexJobs? Here are a few things to know before you do.

1. Why Does FlexJobs Charge a Membership Fee?

The reason many other job search websites have so many scam job listings is that they don’t hand-screen every posting, but FlexJobs does, and that’s what you’re paying for.

Members get access to more than 26,000 flexible jobs from nearly 5,600 different companies, according to the FlexJobs website.

FlexJobs says its research team spends more than 100 combined hours every day reviewing companies and jobs to make sure you’re seeing only the best opportunities.

2. How Much Does FlexJobs Cost? 

FlexJobs has several membership options to choose from. You can pay $9.95 for one week, $20.95 for one month, $39.95 for three months or $59.95 for a year.

FlexJobs does offer promo codes from time to time, which are typically shared on its Facebook and Twitter pages.

3. Is There Anything That FlexJobs Provides for Free?

Although you must be a FlexJobs member to see full job postings, the company does provide job search tips on its blog and even hosts occasional webinars for job applicants.

In early 2022, FlexJobs shared with Clark.com a list of the top companies with remote jobs:

  1. Wikimedia Foundation
  2. Achieve Test Prep
  3. Coalition Technologies
  4. Chainlink Labs
  5. Elastic
  6. Cactus Communications
  7. Hopin
  8. Toptal
  9. Automattic
  10. SelfDecode
  11. ModSquad
  12. Deel

  25. Cambridge Proofreading & Editing
  26. LATOKEN
  27. Platform.sh

  29. Andela
  30. Sourcegraph

If you really don’t want to pay the FlexJobs membership fee, you could identify potential employers from the full top 100 list and browse openings through the companies’ websites.

4. Does FlexJobs Have a Guarantee?

FlexJobs can’t promise that it’ll find you a work-from-home job, but its website says a membership does come with a satisfaction guarantee:

“With FlexJobs’ Satisfaction Guarantee, if you are not satisfied with the quality of our service for any reason, simply cancel your subscription and request a refund … within 30 days of account creation or renewal. We will quickly and promptly process your refund. That’s it, fast and simple! The bottom line is that we want you to be happy with our service, and we’ll do whatever we can to make that happen.”
