New Job Notifications in Slack - Slack Channels Guide
To ensure you receive every remote job listing as soon as we find them, you need to do two things when you join our Slack community:
Set up your notifications. Here's a quick guide from Slack with everything you need to know about notifications for mobile and desktop devices. And here's another handy link to help you configure your Slack notifications, to make sure you don't miss anything you don't want to miss.
Join the relevant channels. You will be subscribed automatically to all job-seeking related channels. You can leave and join any channel at any time. For new job notifications, make sure you join #jobs and, if you are looking for developer roles, for example, #jobs-software-dev. Below you will find our Slack channels guide to learn which ones are relevant.
