Inspiration

Looking at what the pandemic has done to the job market, we thought there's a need for a job portal where people can look for temporary or one-time job to earn some extra money.

What it does

It asks for people's skills and needs and then matches with someone nearby with similar skills willing to do the job.

How we built it

We used a node.js backend. We stored user's login and profile details in sqlite and used sql queries to handle the data. For frontend, we used simple html and js design capabilities.

Challenges we ran into

We ran into problems with database schema and had to keep a simplistic design. We also had some trouble with variable scoping in javascript.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We made the basic skeleton and implemented a basic matching algorithm. It wasn't much but it took a great deal of learning to do.

What we learned

This is the first time all three of us worked on a javascript backend, so it was a great experience learning that.

What's next for Jobster - Job Matching Platform for Amateurs

There are lot of things we want to add on to it. We want to make a more interactive tinder like swiping mechanism for people to select or reject a worker based on certain profile and geography information. We also want to use geolocation to optimize the results so that matching is done by degree of proximity.
