SwissDev Jobs Presentation
SwissDev Jobs is the first Swiss Quality IT job board for Software Developers and IT Specialists in Switzerland. Website was founded in 2018.
We came up with SwissDev Jobs idea when we were... looking for an IT job in Switzerland. Back then, all the job boards we have seen looked like relicts of the past - close to no information about used technologies, no work methodology, poor job filtering, no salary information. We thought to ourselves - we can make this better... and we decided to do so!
We are actively trying to bring transparency, openness and diversity into the Swiss IT market. We are developers ourselves, so we understand the struggles of our colleagues who are looking for a job in this industry. We want to make the process easy, enjoyable and clear for everyone.
Besides job postings, SwissDev Jobs also offers Blog, Newsletter and our biggest project: SwissDev Transparent Companies - an honest look at Swiss IT departments. This is our another attempt at making Swiss IT market intelligible for not only new, but also experienced software developers who are looking for a company that suits exactly their needs. We are going to interview swiss IT companies - little ones and the giants - and ask about things no one asked them before! Our followers will also have a chance to ask questions directly to companies' representatives!

Jobboard Finder’s opinion
Summary: This site emphasizes its different language options (French, English, German) at the top of the page, so everyone can access the information. On this site, there are more than 220 000 visits per day, but this is a huge drop from back in September. Most of the activity comes from direct access to the site, which means it has managed to grab the attention of its potential users and keep them coming back (instead of just getting users through social media or other advertising). On Twitter, there are 2500 followers; on Facebook, there are 751; on LinkedIn, there are 7 438. The site was created by developers for developers!
Design: The design is very simple: on one side, you have a list of job offers and each one displays a logo, a job title, the salary range and some key words. On the other side, you have a map to show you exactly where the offers are. There are only 2 filters (technology and city). The offers are also quite simple: you have different links to social media and even a contact person (with a photo and email included for some) making it possible to go through the site or get in touch with the recruiter directly.
The job board objective: The job board's goal is to make looking for work easy again! The design is simple and the team prides itself on explaining how everything works.
Recruiter observations: It's easy to create an account and you can see the prices on the site.
Jobseeker observations: Jobseekers don't need an account to apply to job offers. When you press on an offer, the site asks if you are Swiss or an EU citizen and it also offers you a cover letter field.
Special features:The language options; the blog (no dates on the articles but they are in many different languages); the testimonials (with photos!); the email just for feedback; the image that explains how to apply; chat window.
Verdict: It might look overly simplistic when you first enter the site, but that's the true beauty of it! This site is amazing

The most transparent and user-friendly job platform there is. The layout allows you to easily filter through all the available technologies, languages, benefits and even company types, and the availability of a map makes everything so much more enjoyable. The founders are always very helpful and quickly reply to all the messages. I highly recommend it!
