Job board for marketers?

So I'm working on this thing.. Basically a better job board for marketers where they can filter jobs based on company type (SaaS, E-Commerce, etc) and/or verticals (Product Marketing, Content Marketing, Social Media, etc). There are tons of developer friendly job boards, but I really haven't found one for marketers. Angel List isn't that intuitive. If you are/were a marketer hunting for jobs, would you use this? #idea-validation #marketing

    How about one for affiliate businesses/websites? That's a very unrepresented niche...

    Definitely think about your distribution strategy first. I started a job board without a proper marketing strategy and the hardest thing is to get enough relevant traffic so that you offer real value for potential customers.

      I agree. The challenge with jobboards is it's a two-sided market. You need jobseekers to get the employers, and you need employers to get jobseekers. Usually one side is easier to get than the other (and it's not always the same side; it depends on your industry).

      And if you only want to post your own jobs (e.g. not aggregrate via other sources), it will take a while. But once it works, I think it has been worth it.

      Great point! I do have a strategy in mind. Mostly through connections and lots of emails. Is your job board still active?

        Yes, it's terrajobs.de but it's for the german market.

          So cool to meet a fellow niche jobboard indie hacker :-). We're not even so far away from each other.

            Oh wow I even know your job board. Let's get in touch - shoot me an email at [email protected]

    Here's one for technical and digital jobs: https://www.bubble-jobs.co.uk/

    Here's one for growth & marketing jobs at tech companies: https://www.growthjobslist.com/

    I think there are plenty of job boards out there, but that shouldn't discourage you from starting one. Maybe you can focus on SaaS jobs only as this in itself is a huge market.

      Thanks! That's actually a good idea

    I think that can maybe be a good idea, but personally im tired that all job boards have the same boring look and feel...

    Sounds like a great idea, and easy to monetize.
