Can I land a remote job as a self taught developer
Sure. Is it likely? Ummm… That gets a little trickier.
It is hard to get a remote job as your first job, especially without a degree. The know almost nothing about you and you want to work remotely, without direct supervision and to just trust you. That is a hard sell. If you get some freelance jobs under your belt, it gets a little easier, but still…
I’m also of the opinion that it is harder to get a backend job as your first job, especially without a degree. It seems that you can do a lot more damage on the backend.
the app is not deployed and still need a lot of work, but I just wanted to ask what kind o projects got you your first django or react job, and how complex was it?
I landed my first job with completing FCC, doing a little open source work, working on some projects in meetups, build some of my own apps - they weren’t complicated but they were well coded. I taught myself React Native, built a toy app with that and deployed it to Google Play. This got me a few RN freelance gigs on upwork, and that got me a “real” job. #ymmv
should i apply with something as incomplete as that ? (i mean it shows everything needed for the backend)
Apply? Why not? What have you got to lose? You’re probably going to apply at 100 different places so why not get started and get some experience with the process?
In the meantime, just keep learning and building. If you do that long enough, your increasing skills will intersect the market need, and mix in a little luck and you have the “impossible to get” first job.
You mentioned working with other people. That is great too. It can be more fun, it shows employers that you can work on a team and understand how those workflows work, and other people will expose you to other ideas.
At the risk of more shameless self-promotion, I once wrote up a doc on my thoughts of getting the first job.
