Jobberbase

Open-source job board software

View project on GitHub

Jobberbase is an open-source job board platform that enables the creation of job sites.

For comparison, Jobberbase is for job sites what WordPress is for blogs.

Since launch, Jobberbase was downloaded more than 100,000 times.

A bit of history

Jobberbase was born in October 2007.

Filip had previously created http://www.jobber.ro, a tech-only job board that quickly became known and loved in the Romanian tech community.

As an experiment and being influenced by how Ruby on Rails (framework) came out of Basecamp (product), Filip decided to open-source jobber, 3 months after launch.

Jobberbase was the first open-source job board platform, a breath of fresh air in a world where all other similar software was legacy, ugly and paid-for, thus challenging the status quo.

Over the next few years, Jobberbase gained popularity and a few core contributors, most notably Lavi & Cosmin Mendrea and Radu Lucaciu who were also heavily involved in the community, helping people out. Other developers started to make a living by customising and extending Jobberbase for their clients. New visual themes were created...

Good times!

Unfortunately for Jobberbase, life happened and the project slowly fell into oblivion. It was nice, it had potential, but we just didn't have time...

Status quo (December 2014)

Having received unexpected help from @rimas-kudelis, we've since launched version 2.0 with significant changes and many additions.
