At DZone, “developer” is in our DNA, and it has been since the early days of Javalobby nearly 20 years ago. Today we help millions of developers world-wide, at DZone.com, learn new skills and technologies, and progress in their careers.
We even make our own software, AnswerHub, specifically designed to help others build and grow their own developer communities.
This focus on developers has been our guiding light and the litmus test that we use whenever we venture into something new.
Developers are Needed for Continued Tech Growth
If you’re reading this on DZone.com, then you likely agree with us—developers are important. And as we move into a future built on technology, their importance will continue to grow. In fact, developer unemployment already runs at a near industry low of 2.12%. With developers in such high demand, you’d think that they’d be in a job that they’re happy doing—loving work.
In truth, 65% of developers aren’t currently in a job that they love and want to go to each day*(Stackoverflow 2017 Developer Hiring landscape). This leads to 15% of all developers actively looking for new jobs and 63% open to hearing about new opportunities. After all, developers, if anything, are always open to trying something new.
In this context, we know there is more DZone can do to help developers find their role in building the future.
Introducing DZone Jobs
And so, today, we are excited to announce that we are launching a new service, DZone Jobs, to help developers connect with new organizations and better opportunities. DZone.com is home to some of the most diverse, experienced developers on the planet, and DZone Jobs will cater to you, our awesome members, focusing on jobs that help take your career to the next level while helping our excellent sponsors find the very best developers to build world-changing technology.
Like everything at DZone, DZone Jobs will be free for our members. We have made it easy for you to sign in with LinkedIn and build out your living resume. You have complete control to allow (or not!) hiring companies to contact you. To cater to the specifics of our industry, you can search for jobs by different skills, stacks/technologies, and locations.
You can even save those searches and get a regular email alerting you to new relevant postings. And if you just want to take a look around, you can easily conduct a search for employers you might like to work for.
For employers (and I know there’s plenty of you here!), DZone Jobs offers a ton of flexibility in both its postings and in the ability to search for those passive job seekers among the DZone audience.
We’ve put together an array of products to fit the needs of any size company. Start with a single posting or buy a bundle of 5 or 10. If you need to hire a lot of developers – look at our annual subscription and get unlimited postings for a year.
Recruit Top Developer Talent for Your Team
And... to kick things off, we’re going all out and extending free posting credits to all DZone members. Pass along the code HIREDEVS to your company’s hiring manager or use it yourself.
