SwissDev Jobs started in 2018 as a side-project in Zurich by developers frustrated with the existing job boards that looked like they were built in 2002.
If you are a Software Engineer and ever searched for a job, you probably noticed, that the existing job boards are a pain to use:
- Job descriptions are unstructured and don't mention the important things, like technologies or work methodology (are you writing unit tests?)
- Filtering and searching is broken - you can search but good luck finding the jobs that match your skills, experience, and preferences
- You never know where your application goes - directly to the company or to some middle man recruiting agency
We asked ourselves - how can we make it better? This is how the idea of SwissDev Jobs came up.
Make the job search process for Software Engineers better by gathering all job postings in Switzerland and bringing in transparency.
