Searching for job in tech might be pretty miserable activity. There are multiple job board websites but they are boring and often annoying. The new website called WhoIsHiring.io is trying to make the process of searching for a new employer a bit more fun (especially from a GeoGeek perspective).
The website aggregates startup job openings data from multiple services and places them on a map. It shows you how many openings are there in a particular area. The jobs are listed on the right side of the screen and when you zoom in to the map they are filtered by geography. Simple but awesome.
From the cartographic stand point there is still a lot of work to be done. The color and the size of the dots represent the same information – number of jobs in the area. Orange small dots stand for 1-30 jobs in a given location, purple mid-size dots 30-99 jobs and large green dots everything above 100. It would be so awesome if the map could at least optionally show some additional data on the map. The project is fresh and lets give it a bit more time.
The website has been created by Sebastian Pawlus a freelance developer and Ania Bywanis – digital marketer, both based in Krakow, Poland. They are currently bootstrapping and they’re seeing 80,000 users a month. We keep our fingers crossed for the success of the project!
