Remote OK's wide reach makes it a good choice if you're looking to attract an international workforce to your Australia-based remote jobs. The site's niche nature makes it easy for Australian employers to connect with more than 1 million global remote workers.
Tech sector jobs are more prominently featured, but a non-tech job filter is also provided. It features customized paid job listing packages and useful add-ons such as company branding. Remote OK's job posting plans (quoted in U.S. dollars) are costlier than local job boards such as Jora, with free options.

We were unable to find online reviews from Australia-based users. The job board attracted mostly positive reviews from global users on Product Hunt, where the site has a 4.1/5 rating.
Remote OK has a dynamic pricing model whereby the cost of job posts and add-on features changes depending on the number of job ads that are posted every week. The platform limits sticky posts (ads that are featured at the top of the front page for a specific duration) to a maximum of two at the same time per company.
Job postings are automatically renewed after 30 days and are charged at the same price as the original job post. Job posts that have been closed on the edit page are not automatically renewed. Users can also disable the auto-renew features or get a refund within seven days after renewing.
Remote OK vs. WeWorkRemotely:
WeWorkRemotely is more affordable than Remote OK if you're purchasing a single job post, but Remote OK provides additional bulk posting options. WeWorkRemotely offers more advanced hiring features, such as activity and data reporting and job feeds from leading ATS platforms. Both sites offer Australian employers good international exposure.
Remote OK vs. Working Nomads:
Both Remote OK and Working Nomads connect Australian employers with global digital workers. Remote OK mainly features remote tech jobs as opposed to Working Nomads, which includes other remote jobs. Remote OK offers dynamic pricing and gives employers more job listing add-on options.
Remote OK vs. SEEK:
Remote OK offers a global remote work job board, while SEEK is a general job board. Both feature free candidate profiles, but SEEK's free searches are limited. Only SEEK includes applicant tracking. Remote OK's pricing varies depending on the number of active posts on the site, whereas SEEK's prices vary based on the job title and location.
