Directory of APIs that we can leverage for Job Boards.

Hi,

Building and growing a job board without an audience is a huge problem. So I am thinking about how can I grab my target audiences' interest with extra services and so-called "bread-crumbs".

So I thought I can focus on APIs. There is a tonne of APIs we can leverage to deliver more value to our customers. Here I will share some of those APIs I found and feel free to share yours in the comments below so we can build a solid directory of services and APIs we can use for our job boards.

Databases

  1. Airtable API: I am using Airtable as database. For me it's dead simple and easy to maintain.

Job Offers

  1. Adzuna API: They offer partnerships, so you can deliver their listings and earn money by CPC. If you are partner, you get unlimited API calls.
  2. Github Jobs API: You can bring Github Jobs to your website with it.
  3. Glasdoor API: This way, you can have more in-depth company information but sadly their API is not public. You need to apply for it.
  4. RemoteOK API: Free API from RemoteOK for hundred's of job listings.

Search

  1. Algolia API: I am not a top-notch dev. So Algolia helps me to query my website and help my audience search without problems.

I will try to keep this directory updated when I run into new APIs for job boards. Feel free to share what you use and for what purpose. This way we can share our expertise and knowledge from different niches :)

    Thanks. Any API recommendations you have for bringing in resumes? Free would be nice but would be interested in knowing reasonably inexpensive paid ones that are good for tech type resumes.
