Working abroad sounds awesome, right? Maybe you’ve even considered it yourself. But if you’ve ever tried to Google your way through a job search, you know exactly how hard it is to find anything that looks remotely legitimate.
As appealing as it sounds to find a gig on Craigslist interning for a Nigerian, HackAbroad has a different idea; they’re looking to match job seekers with growing international-friendly startups looking for foreign talent.
Because there are many international job seekers who would love to work abroad but lack the most important part – a sponsor – HackAbroad plans to step in to help connect these would-be workers to global companies in one central, easy-to-navigate website.
By focusing specifically on finding companies who are actively seeking international talent, HackAbroad plans to provide better and more realistic job options for those who’d like to work in another city, country or continent. For companies looking to grow, adding employees from overseas can be an effective way to expand a team and a vision – they just need to get connected with those people that are looking and willing to take the trip.
HackAbroad will be free for job seekers, with a freemium model in place for startups looking to hire. The first 30 days is free, and then employers are given the option to upgrade to a sponsored listing for additional visibility within the site.
No formal launch dates have been announced, but the service plans to launch in the next few months. You might want to keep an eye out…and a passport handy.

This is an awesome idea! I just checked out their site, but it looks like they’re still in beta. I’m excited to see the company grow. I have family in Hong Kong, and I’d love to work there.

I am from India and I think this is a great thing to read about. There are only so many jobs that I can apply for around here, but my experience is much bigger than the common coder. I like the idea that I could really take my experience and get much further with it elsewhere.

A friend of mine and I were talking about something like this the other day. What a great option for those that are great with computers, coding and the like to get a chance to work abroad. People always think they are the only ones that thought of a new idea LOL.

Finally, somebody is addressing this issue! Hoping they launch soon, I’d like to get out of the US fast :/

The way international talent can help your company with coding or whatever, it is nice to have an option if you are in the market for workers from locales that happen to be overseas.

This is a great idea. Another way for those that are good at something to have the chance to work somewhere they do not live. This opens up a lot of chances to find a job in another location of the world.
