Recent job listings

~ 28 February 2007 ~

UPDATE: Several of you have asked similar questions by email, so I’ve enabled comments to answer them here.

Beverly Hills, CNET, and Chief Perfectionist. Just a few of the opportunities posted to Authentic Jobs in recent weeks.



Andrew McClain, who posted a freelance listing recently for, had this to say:

Just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with the Authentic Jobs listing. The biggest problem we had was choosing which talented designer to hire!

Lastly, a big hat tip to Jon Linczak as the code maven behind the new ajaxified filtering (home page), and a warm welcome to Khoi Vinh and Roger Johansson as listing partners.



Veer Veer: Visual Elements for Creatives.
Stock photography, type, and killer tees. Genuinely recommended by Authentic Boredom.

Several of you have asked similar questions by email, so I’ll answer those here.

I was wondering if I could add the newest listing feeds to my site?

Absolutely! We’d be thrilled to have you help your readers find quality jobs. Simply use <script src=”“> referencing either of the following feeds: (latest 5)
or (random 3)

Please email me to let me know you’ve added the feed to your site.

Did you build the backend for the site, or is it off the shelf?

It’s custom built from the ground up.

If the listings are still up, does that mean that no one has filled the position yet or does that mean the company/person that put up the listing might just not have got around to taking it down?

Could mean either. By default, the listings remain for 30 days, whether or not the position has been filled. We’re currently considering ways to make it easier to remove fill positions or mark them as filled. But, the best way for you to find out is to simply apply.

How about a date by each listing?

While a date is posted to each individual listing, we do see value in having some sort of freshness indicator on the home page, and you’ll probably see an update along those lines soon.

How long did it take for you to design and develop the site?

About 2 months. Probably could have been done much faster, but we were all doing plenty of other work in addition to the jobs site.

I was wondering if there was any way to have two separate RSS feeds… one for design jobs, and one for programming jobs?

4   Cameron Moll ~ 03 March 2007

Yes. In fact, look for that (design, programming only feeds) by next week.
