Testimonials for The Pragmatic Engineer Job Board

The Pragmatic Engineer Job Board is one of the best places to list senior engineering and leadership roles. Companies scoring at least 10/12 on The Pragmatic Engineer Test can list positions.

"🚀 Got 2 AMAZING Director of Engineering candidates this month

The Pragmatic Engineer Job Board is giving me early Github Jobs vibe, back when it was the highest-signal job board in the developer hiring game.

Gergely Orosz has built a top-notch community and if you're hiring senior+ developers, you should absolutely check it out."

- Wes Winham Winler, founder/CEO at Woven

"We had by far the largest inbound from the features listing on your newsletter, compared to all other sources we advertised on."

(later)

"We hired engineer #2 though your platform 🤩"

- Willem Sprujit, cofounder & CTO of Rise Calendar

Suggestions for job posts

Please see my suggestions on how to write a job ad that attracts qualified software engineer candidates.

Featured jobs get ~5-10x as much engagement in terms of post clicks and applications versus standard jobs. This is because these jobs are advertised not just on the job board, but other properties (this website, my newsletter, and a shoutout on Twitter).

Money-back guarantee

Full money-back guarantee if you don't receive any qualified candidates from your job listing. Please send an email to jobs (at) pragmaticengineer (dot) com if this is the case.

Exceptions

Companies that I cannot do business with:

  • Crypto companies. I do not do business with companies that build on top of PoW crypto technologies (e.g. ETH, BTC). This is both because I condemn the environmental impact of this activity and pledged to not benefit, sponsor or promote PoW in any way (directly or indirectly). I also view the unregulated nature of crypto and not disclosing the risks of investing to everyday people as a major risk and one I do not promote.
  • Hiring in locations where being LGBT can carry a death penalty. Software engineering is a diverse field, with some of the highest performing teams composed of various gender, race, religion, and sexual orientations backgrounds. I am unwilling to promote postings that hire in locations where being different - such as being LGBT - is criminalized, and can carry the death penalty. Countries include Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, Northern Nigeria, and others.
