MyRemoteTeam is a payment platform that helps employers pay their teams of remote employees, contractors, and freelancers. The platform also allows you to hire developers, designers, accountants, mobile developers, and virtual assistants. While the site works best for hiring remote workers, employers can specify if they want to hire from a certain location.
Companies in Canada should consider using MyRemoteTeam because the platform dashboard is user-friendly, the job posting process is easy and convenient, and employers are assigned 'hiring experts' for support and guidance.
However, job posts are limited to the platform, and only registered professionals will see them – it is unclear how many of the candidates live in Canada, so if you want to hire locally, the site might not be the right fit for your purposes.
Based on MyRemoteTeam's social media profiles and a complete lack of reviews or mention anywhere, the platform has a tiny presence in the remote hiring space.

How to Post a Job for a Developer on MyRemoteTeam:
Eight easy steps for posting a job on MyRemoteTeam.
Posting a job on MyRemoteTeam.
Click on "Hire Developers" on the home page.
You will find this in the top banner of the MyRemoteTeam home page.
Click "Hire Now."
You will find this on the next page to the left.
Select the remote resource you need.
On the next page, you can choose a category from developer, designer, accountant, mobile developer, or virtual assistant.
We chose "developer" for our example.
Select the type of project you are hiring for.
You can choose an option from "I have a new project" or "I have an existing/ongoing project".
We chose a new project for our example, but both options take you to the same next step.
Select your payment method.
MyRemoteTeam gives you the option of paying a fixed or hourly rate. Enter the amount you are willing to pay and click "Next."
Complete the next step.
The next step differs depending on your payment option. If you chose a fixed rate, you will now need to choose whether you want a developer from a remote or specific location.
If you chose an hourly rate, you will need to specify the hours-per-week availability you need. Then you will move on to the location options.
We will continue our example using the hourly rate option and the remote working option. However, both location options will take you to the next step.
Describe the specific skills you're looking for.
In the next step, you will need to describe your project and the specific skills you need.
Provide your details.
On the next page, you will need to enter your name, work email, phone number, skype handle, and a password to create an account on MyRemoteTeam. Click "Submit & Proceed" when you are done. A hiring expert will contact you to discuss your project further.
MyRemoteTeam vs. Working Nomads:
Working Nomads attracts over 120 thousand visitors every month and job posts are sent to 15,000 email subscribers, which means you are likely to reach more people through the platform. However, it can't be used for free and won't allow company branding. MyRemoteTeam will connect you to a higher quality of candidates.
MyRemoteTeam vs. We Work Remotely:
We Work Remotely is a great alternative to MyRemoteTeams. Based in Canada, the platform will likely be a better option for hiring locally. it also offers more job categories, so you can access professionals from a wider range of industries. It does cost more than MyRemoteTeam, which has a higher quality of registered professionals.
MyRemoteTeam vs. Workopolis:
Workopolis is run by Indeed, so job posts on the platform are likely to reach a far wider audience than those on MyRemoteTeam. Job posts on Workopolis are free and can be posted in English or French. You will spend time weeding the bad applicants from the good ones, which you won't have to do with MyRemoteTeam.
