Giving the high demand for developers, I've seen more and more
companies who hire developers remotely. Constantly we see posts of
developers saying how awesome it is working remotely and how it has
worked great for them and their companies.
Analyzing the "Who's hiring thread" for the last 5 months, I found
that there are a "good" number of companies willing to do this, but
still is not that much and a lot of them say "Just in US"

developers are overseas but not hiring the developers directly, why is
DISCLAIMER: I'm interesting in the subject mostly because I'm working
on a current solution to help companies and developers connect through
engager.io, we believe there is a giant market of good developers
outside the U.S, but unfortunately not all the companies want to hire
remotely or can sponsor H1B1 visas.
