General tips

Please note that this a guide, not a comprehensive list of what is allowable or forbidden.

Use Remotive to fill a job, not a pipeline. Each posting should represent a real and currently available job.
Don’t discriminate. Jobs on Remotive must be made available to qualified candidates regardless of age, race, gender and sexual orientation.
Pay reliably and fairly. Jobs that people find on Remotive should have hourly or salaried wages and may not cost the candidate anything to apply, interview and begin work.
Make application accessible and transparent. Job seekers should not have to set up or navigate through complicated steps to begin the application process.
Respect Candidate Privacy. Information gathered in the application process should be shared carefully within your company and never made available to 3rd parties.

Please read these Job Posting Rules carefully and ensure that your job postings comply with (a) these Rules, (b) your contract with Remotive and (c) applicable laws.

We will remove a job posting if we are made aware of, and confirm that, the job posting is inaccurate, fake, misleading, deceptive, infringes on a third-party’s copyright and/or trademark, violates an applicable law, rule and/or regulation in any jurisdiction nationally or internationally, violates your contractual obligations to Remotive, violates these guidelines, is libelous, defamatory, immoral, offensive, obscene, pornographic, disruptive, threatening, abusive, or contains content that is not appropriate for any other reason.

Please ensure that your remote job meets the following guidelines

DO post jobs that represent real and current job openings
DO make sure that you have the right to post the opening, for example, ensure that the trademark owner and the copyright owner of the content have consented to you posting the job
DO make sure that all elements of the job are described accurately, for example, clearly specify:

- Whether any geo-restriction or country restriction apply.

- The job title, duties and responsibilities of the role
- The required experience and skillset for the role
- The salary and any other compensation, if available.

Do provide clear instructions for applying for the job:

DON’T Provide Content That Violates Laws and These Additional Rules

Note: The list below is not exhaustive. The content of job postings must comply with the following rules or their equivalent in France or the jurisdiction (country, state, municipality, city, town, etc.) of the job poster, target job seekers, and any other applicable jurisdiction.

Not prohibit applications from persons with criminal convictions, criminal records, and/or felonies, where prohibited by law unless such criterion is a legitimate requirement of the job or is required by law
Not use clickbait in titles. Job titles should be the name of the particular job as it might appear on a business card, with no extra information. Job descriptions is where work location, required degrees, company perks and other specifics should be detailed.

Please note: We cannot give every reason why a job or a company may be removed, and we always retain the right to undertake such the removal of any job, organic or sponsored, if we feel it is in our interest or our users’ interest.
