One of the core principles we champion at Remote is intensity, which we reflected in our improved features this month.

We're using AI to generate accurate and unbiased job descriptions that stand out on Remote Talent. You can also use our improved role and permission settings to protect sensitive information.

With our new career journal, employees can privately document their accomplishments and milestones. Last but not least, employers and contractors have more flexibility in choosing currency and creating invoices.

We hope you all enjoy the updates.

Contractor invoices from tracked hours 

Contractors can conveniently generate invoices directly from timesheets, eliminating manual effort for every invoice request. 

Our platform calculates the total hours spent automatically, considering only regular and on-call hours across a chosen time range. In one click, contractors can sum up their tracked hours.

If there is a predefined hourly rate, it applies automatically to the invoice. If the employer hasn’t set an hourly rate, the contractor can add it from their end. It’s easy for employers to review, approve, and pay invoices. Learn more on our Help Center: How to create invoices from time tracking
