A few weeks ago, @isaacandsuch posted a great article about hiring junior developers.
The article got me thinking about how extra hard it is for junior developers to find remote work. So I started a GitHub repo listing companies that hire junior developers for remote positions.

A list of companies that hire remote junior developers
We Hire Remote Jr. Devs
A list of companies that have been known to hire junior developers for remote positions.
This is not a jobs board — the companies listed below may or may not have open junior roles at this time.
For a list of remote jobs boards see the Awesome Remote Job repo by @lukasz-madon. For a junior-specific (but not necessarily remote) jobs board see jrdevjobs.com.
|Harris Computer||Enterprise software solutions|
|Health Catalyst||Healthcare analytics|
|Pixelcabin||Shopify e-commerce solutions|
|Scopic Software||Custom solutions for web, mobile and desktop|
|Sticker Mule||Branding and STICKERS!|
|Toggl||Time tracking app|
Inspired by this post by @isaaclyman, and this tweet by @dhh
If you know of such a company, please submit a pull request (or message me directly) and I'd be happy to add it to the list!

I still think that a junior developer would benefit greatly from having more experienced people in the vicinity, that he or she can ask for help.
Being remote would mean would have to use Slack or some other messaging application to communicate your problems, which is often a problem for juniors, because they don't know yet how to explain the problem correctly or which terms to use.
While I agree there are benefits to direct access, I'd like to offer two additional thoughts:
1) Junior developers may live in a region with few-to-no tech opportunities, and relocation may not be an option for a number of reasons.
2) There are definitely companies willing (even enthusiastic) to tackle the challenges of hiring junior remotes. For example, DHH recently tweeted about Basecamp's great experiences hiring remote junior devs.
My goal here was to create a resource that connects these two groups.
I didn't want to imply that hiring remote juniors or getting hired as one is a big no-no. You have to weight your options. Getting hired remotely is still way better than not getting hired at all.
Sorry if it sounded like I was bashing your post :) I think you did a great job :thumbsup:
I didn't feel bashed, and I appreciate the feedback. 🙂
