Yeah, its founders are ex-recruiters who realized the recruiting market is a scam.
A recruiter doesn't want to match you to the company that best fits you, they want to match you to the company that pays them the best.
And with fees ranging from 10k to 25k(!) that's no wonder.
This platform was made with the developer in mind, instead of the employer or recruiter.
Employers pay to have their job offers on the website and developers can respond to job offers or just browse.
By asking a couple of technical questions they hope to keep out recruiters.
I know every company that wants a profile is personally screened by the founders and if there's any doubt the company is a recruitment agency their request is denied.
Companies are also forced to write very detailed job offers with a salary indication, so developers won't waste their time talking to companies that don't meet their needs.
It's also strictly .NET, so you won't find Python, PHP, Java, or plumbers, accountants and other jobs that you'd find on a regular job site.
It's really refreshing to see a platform that takes the developer's needs into account Big Grin | :-D
