Recently I was contacted by a company for a remote job offer for a Russian company (I am in India). I accepted that and I had a face-to-face meeting with one person from their team.
He asked for my Github account. He just asked about basics of a programming language and we had some related discussions about tech and frameworks, nothing tough.
I was offered position to join that company and received an offer letter (as a one page Word document) which asks me to provide my passport ID.
I have searched online they didn't ask about any money if it was scam. However I am not able to decide if it's a legitimate offer as this company doesn't have much info online. During the Skype interview HR told me that it's a group on 11 people or so working remotely.
Following things I noticed:
- They have their own email domain (which is good but not hard to buy up business email for scammers)
Question: What are the things that I should look out for (red flags)?
NOTE: This is my first application for a remote job
