I am proud to announce the beta version of WordPress Jobs.

The site is intended to be used as the primary location for employers looking for professional WordPress help to post their needs and for WordPress professionals to find, apply for and obtain jobs in WordPress. We have focussed on aesthetics, ease of use and consolidation of resources in developing WordPress Jobs. Feeds are available for every job category to make it easy for job seekers to find and apply for the right jobs as quickly as possible. We will also advertise jobs from WordPress Jobs on weblogtoolscollection to increase exposure.

Job categories include WordPress Design Positions, WordPress Programmer Positions, WordPress Blogger Positions and General Positions divided into full time and project job types. Once posted, jobs should appear on the main listing within 24 hours and will continue to be listed on the site for a period of 21 days from posting.

While in beta, the service will be free. However, hiring intentions are better thought out and more steadfast when there is something to be lost in vacillation. We want the process of finding WordPress professionals to be easy and cheap for employers and fast and painless for job seekers.

WordPress Jobs is proudly powered by WordPress. Thanks to Matt for his help and support and to Jennifer for her excellent work on the design.

    Quite the good idea – my biggest hope is that people looking for WP designers do their research on the individuals contacting them for work. (i.e. checking out portfolios before negotiating deals) Otherwise you will get business/individuals upset when people they hire don’t pan out.

    excelent, by the way, it would be interesting to know, how did you make this portal, what plugins have you used, or even share it for studying purposes ;)

    Hey, Great idea.

    I’m also wondering what plugins / how you set this site up.

    Could you post an article relating to that? :)

    Thanks,
    Matt

    What a fantastic idea! I am hearing about more and more companies who want WordPress blogs but are thoroughly clueless as to how to do it. I’ve been contacted by some webmasters who are unfamiliar with WP and need help with plug-ins, themes, layout, and more. Thank you!

    Will you be releasing the details on how you crafted that jobs site with WP? I’d like to do the same thing and not sure how you used the fields and settings. Tks!

    Good theme on this wordpress. I have a couple of sites myself that I’m using the same theme and I look sharp and clean. Good luck.

    I think it would be great to work at wordpress. They are a great company and they are so well known. I dont even know anyone that hates it.

    I agree with Matt and Matt … what did you use to create this site, as it looks really slick. Reminds me a bit of BranchOut, thought thats specifically for networking via facebook.
