Remote Career Summit 2020

We're holding the Remote Career Summit 2020 on June 25!

Don't miss this opportunity to hear from the leading companies in remote work, attend workshops, and possibly even find you next remote role at the career expo.

It's free to attend (sign up here). Check out the information below.

We’re still adding new information and speakers — watch this space!


Here at Arc, we love remote work — our day job is helping expert remote developers find great projects and organizations, after all. So when the COVID-19 pandemic forced a lot of people and companies to suddenly go remote, and the economic outlook began to look a bit shaky, we wondered how we could help. Could we help people “do remote better” and help people connect with job opportunities?

The answer we stumbled upon over a few team video chats was this: holding the world’s biggest virtual Remote Career Summit. This day-long event is part remote work conference, part virtual job fair.

We’re collaborating with some of the world’s top remote work experts and companies to bring you this unique opportunity to launch — or grow — your remote career. The best bit: there are still more talks to be announced 🎉

If this sounds as exciting to you as it does to us, welcome aboard!
