In July this year I launched Refactoring Jobs to provide an effective way for readers to find high quality, remote engineering jobs.
Since then, I reviewed hundreds of positions. I talked with tens of companies to understand what they were looking for, and to help them write a better job post.

🎽 Team & Position
About the team
🔢 Application Process
