Arsen Ibragimov, founder of Meerkad

Welcome to Meerkad

Hey, nice to meet you. My name is Arsen Ibragimov, and I am the creator of Meerkad. I started this Remote Job Board Community to connect companies with the current and hopeful remote working people from all over the world.

I am a web developer and have been coding since I was 15. My wife and I were world travelers, but we settled down in Moscow, Russia a few years ago to grow up our glorious daughter.

I have been working remotely since 2014, and it has been the best career move of my life. It allows me to spend more time with my family and gives me a flexible schedule.

Meerkad was started after I tried to find a new remote job for me. While searching for websites with remote job positions and looking through the available ones, I came with the conclusion that they are repeated. The second conclusion wasn’t that obvious - aggregator websites don’t have positions that are published on companies’ websites, on Facebook, Twitter, and Reddit communities. Moreover, job boards publish only those vacancies for which they were paid and their goal is to earn more money by posting jobs, rather than helping you find a job.

I have conducted small research and according to my calculations, popular remote job boards gather only a tenth of the available jobs out there. That’s a surprise, that helped me understand that people, who are looking for a job, only see the tip of the iceberg.

Today Meerkad is the place with daily job postings from more than eighty open sources that are published manually. Our goal is to simplify and speed up the job search process.
