I'm really happy to have these improvements done. The employer experience is a very important point for Role Up. It has to be a key differiencation. I can now focus on the v1.0 release
List of improvements extracted from the landing https://roleup.com/en/latest-updates/
The main improvement is a header that follows the employer at every step of the publication. Since its launch, one of the Role Up goals is to keep a publication system not longer than 3 steps. It was simple but not clear.
Now, a new employer who navigates to your job board is guided step by step towards a job publication.
Employers have now access to a dedicated page to edit their company. This page is accessible from their private page or directly from the job edition.
When a new employer post his first job he has to confirm his email. This step has been improved. It is described in a clearer way with a dedicated page and the employer is redirected directly to the preview of his post.
The job type has been added.
I'm very happy to push the API online 🎉
I linked the web documentation at the address https://roleuproleup.com/api/
Any requests or any remarks on the API itself are very welcome 🙏
At least, Job board owners can now embed their job board content into their main website and eventually create a better engagement.
More than the API itself, this release enables new features coming soon. One of them is the direct integration with Slack, which is very needed. In the end community managers who animate a Slack group want their #jobs channel filled properly.
Today I launch the first job board created with Role Up for the community that I manage. I'm going to eat my own dog food for few days, see what is not usuable and what should be improved.
It promises to be interesting 💪
The address of the job board https://jobs.embedsysweekly.com/
During this summer I decided to work regularly on the project. The idea comes from @iheanyi who built Seeker and launched it during April 2018.
Why I decided to work on this specific project?
First, because I needed a job board for my own community (https://embedsysweekly.com/)
Second, because the win-win approach of the communities and Role Up seduced me right from the beginning. Communities do not pay, and they with Role Up make money hand-in-hand.
Thank you for the inspiration @iheanyi 🙏
Jobboards software market is dominated by on one hand tools for software developers (wordpress plugins), on another hand expensive click and configure easy to use software. RoleUp exists to fill the gap.
