About

Introduction

Jobsort is for software developers, testers, and designers who are looking for a minimalist, fast, and opinionated job search engine. Our product connects passive candidates with hot startups and enterprises. Unlike other job sites, which rank jobs by a “combination of employer bids and relevance,” we rank them solely by relevance; furthermore, we give back 100% of profits to non-profit organizations that teach kids how to code.

Features

Search-as-you-type

We want to make Jobsort as fast as possible and constantly iterate and improve performance. We run out of Cloudflare and have over 15+ different geo-distributed and redundant origins. We use an in-memory cache of the entire job search index so that results are fetched as fast as possible. We compress and secure communications between you, Cloudflare, and the origins via Brotli and Gzip.

News about startups

If you stumble upon a startup that you are not aware of, you can quickly click on the news link next to the company name to research it. You will be redirected to Google News in a new tab where news related to the startup will be shown. This functionality is available for all sizes, including enterprises.

No 404s

You get excited about a job, you click on the title only to find out that the job has expired. That looks bad. We get it. So we built a cron process that iterates over all jobs and checks if they are still available for you to apply. This way you are less likely to stumble upon a 404 error when you click on a job.

Dark mode

Jobsort natively supports dark mode in addition to light mode. It honors the preferred color scheme of your browser. For example, if your browser is set to inherit light or dark mode from the operating system, then the colors of Jobsort will change accordingly. This makes the browsing experience pleasant during night time. You will not find a bright screen on Jobsort if you visit after sunset.

Startup growth charts

A cool job in a startup you have just heard about? Cool! But is the startup growing or stagnating, or worse, losing customers? If the startup is successful, you should see an upward trend in the number of website visitors. Just click the growth link that is associated to every job search result.
