Supported Countries for Job Searching


LinkedIn searches globally & uses only the location parameter.


ZipRecruiter searches for jobs in US/Canada & uses only the location parameter.

Indeed / Glassdoor

Indeed & Glassdoor supports most countries, but the country_indeed parameter is required. Additionally, use the location parameter to narrow down the location, e.g. city & state if necessary.

You can specify the following countries when searching on Indeed (use the exact name, * indicates support for Glassdoor):

Argentina Australia* Austria* Bahrain
Belgium* Brazil* Canada* Chile
China Colombia Costa Rica Czech Republic
Denmark Ecuador Egypt Finland
France* Germany* Greece Hong Kong*
Hungary India* Indonesia Ireland*
Israel Italy* Japan Kuwait
Luxembourg Malaysia Mexico* Morocco
Netherlands* New Zealand* Nigeria Norway
Oman Pakistan Panama Peru
Philippines Poland Portugal Qatar
Romania Saudi Arabia Singapore* South Africa
South Korea Spain* Sweden Switzerland*
Taiwan Thailand Turkey Ukraine
United Arab Emirates UK* USA* Uruguay
Venezuela Vietnam*


  • Indeed is the best scraper currently with no rate limiting.
  • All the job board endpoints are capped at around 1000 jobs on a given search.
  • LinkedIn is the most restrictive and usually rate limits around the 10th page with one ip. Proxies are a must basically.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Encountering issues with your queries?
A: Try reducing the number of results_wanted and/or broadening the filters. If problems persist, submit an issue.

Q: Received a response code 429?
A: This indicates that you have been blocked by the job board site for sending too many requests. All of the job board sites are aggressive with blocking. We recommend:

  • Wait some time between scrapes (site-dependent).
  • Try using the proxies param to change your IP address.
