We want to make Jobsort as fast as possible and constantly iterate and improve performance. We run out of Cloudflare and have over 15+ different geo-distributed and redundant origins. We use an in-memory cache of the entire job search index so that results are fetched as fast as possible. We compress and secure communications between you, Cloudflare, and the origins via Brotli and Gzip.
#2: Filter by Programming Language
Filtering by programming language was the most requested feature when we publicly launched Jobsort in February of 2021. We are happy to announce that it is now possible to filter by programming language. Several checkboxes appear for your search terms, and are ranked by how many results there are for that programming language. Note that the programming language filters are dependend on your query, and up to ten will show up.
#3: Filter by Tech Stack
As you may have guessed by now, filtering by tech stack the was second most requested feature. And yes, it is now possible to filter by tech stack. Is the tech stack that you are looking for missing? It is totally possible. In this case, please send us an email; we are happy to add new keywords quickly. Similarly to the programming languages, the tech stacks are sorted descendingly by count, i.e. if you were to click the first filter that would bring most results back. There may be jobs with a niche experience but there are just a few, and for your query terms that niche tech stack does not rank in top 10 filters, thus is not shown on the website. We recommend you make your query more specific in this case, which should surface the niche filters.
#4: News About Startups
If you stumble upon a startup that you are not aware of, you can quickly click on the news link next to the company name to research it. You will be redirected to Google News in a new tab where news related to the startup will be shown. This functionality is available for all sizes, including enterprises.
#5: No 404s
You get excited about a job, you click on the title only to find out that the job has expired. That looks bad. We get it. So we built a cron process that iterates over all jobs and checks if they are still available for you to apply. This way you are less likely to stumble upon a 404 error when you click on a job.
#6: Dark Mode
Jobsort natively supports dark mode in addition to light mode. It honors the preferred color scheme of your browser. For example, if your browser is set to inherit light or dark mode from the operating system, then the colors of Jobsort will change accordingly. This makes the browsing experience pleasant during night time. You will not find a bright screen on Jobsort if you visit after sunset.
#7: Startup Growth Charts
A cool job in a startup you have just heard about? Cool! But is the startup growing or stagnating, or worse, losing customers? If the startup is successful, you should see an upward trend in the number of website visitors. Just click the growth link that is associated to every job search result.
