Remote Career Summit 2020

2638 people attended

Join the largest virtual job fair for remote professionals and companies!

Get your resume and portfolio “remote ready” and connect directly with employers who are still hiring. This event is perfect for job seekers open to working remotely, managers leading remote teams, and anyone interested in learning more about remote work.

Career Discussions: We're bringing together leaders of top remote companies to share their experience as well as tips they have for those looking for remote roles. We'll also have some workshops specifically for developers, marketers, and designers.

Job Fair: Throughout the day, the Employer Expo is where you can learn more about remote-friendly companies who are still hiring, what positions are open, and quickly apply to open positions.

About This Event

Millions of people are now unemployed due to the global pandemic. At the same time, many tech companies have announced they will go remote permanently. Against the backdrop of these massive shifts in the workplace, we invite you to join us for this virtual event to discuss these challenges and plan for the future of remote work together.

Who We Are

Arc helps you effortlessly hire world-class remote engineers and teams. Our mission is to empower talent to do work that matters from anywhere.
