Paidcontent, the digital media and content publication was one of the first to realize that niche job boards were the future, and introduced its Digital Media Jobs board, when we were rank amateurs in comparison. Since then vibrant communities like 37Signals, TechCrunch, Alarm:Clock, and more recently ProBloggers have introduced their own twist on the job boards.
Though we are not the first, and certainly not the last, today we are throwing our hat in the ring, and introducing our Job Board, which is now live at jobs.gigaom.com. We have smart readers, and many of them run smart companies or fund smart companies. Others are looking for smart jobs. I believe we can provide mediation.
The job listings run $200 per listing per month. It is a fairly simple process. Try it out for yourself 🙂
We have added some features which make it easier for you to find the right job. For instance you can sort by location, category and the date posted. Job postings include other small features such as ability to communicate via Skype, and AIM. We are also using some simple web services to enhance what we’re doing such as connecting you to to Google Maps and Linked In.
Since our readers span a cross section of industries – broadband, wireless, VoIP, and consumer Internet, I feel confident that there will something (or a job) for everyone. We have a few already up! This C/C++ SupaFly gig sounds interesting. Just to keep you updated on the latest jobs, we have a RSS feed you can subscribe to.
We are counting on you to make this a success, and look forward to hearing your feedback, and suggestions. If you find bugs, please either email us or leave a comment. Thanks!
