RussMedia Solutions is an international company that offers job software services for online businesses. From what I can tell they seem to offer a good value and they tell me they are flexible when it comes to customizing packages and platforms to their clients’ needs. They are not a big player yet, but may be worth your while to give them a look.
Job boards are their strong point, but they do just as well with other verticals like real-estate, cars or general. Their portfolio includes even a horses classifieds portal.
They tell me that since they are early adopters of a “microservice architecture” approach, they give their clients more flexibility which help saves money on support hours needed.
I conducted an email Q&A with Adrian Daniel, their Chief Revenues Officer. Find them online at russmediasolutions.com.

We have many features available for our platforms, just to name a few relevant for the job boards we have semantic search smart apply, powerful analytics, job alerts, advanced filtering capabilities plus many other microservices.
Semantic search – Features like semantic search will help your users generate better search results and more relevant. This feature will search the correct form of a word even if your users type it wrong. In other words, it’s also typo tolerance and this is great!
Smart apply – Sometimes we need a little bit of help when it comes to digital creation. In this case, smart apply is the best tool for a user who is not familiar with how to write a CV. This feature will help your users to automatically convert documents or different types of information into digital CV-s.
Powerful Analytics – Keeping track of where you are is one of the most important things. With our analytics tools your clients will be able to see how they are performing and most importantly, they will see which are those job posts that perform the best.

7. What advice do you have for new job board owners to help them succeed?
Planning for at least 30% plus of what you expect in traffic and users, so you can scale easily and make sure you will be sustainable over time. Also try use the microservices architecture model instead of the monolithic approach to make sure management and transition will be easier to handle. We have some really good feed-back from our existing customers on this new approach and the main gain is less time and money spent on development. This, at least for us, leaves more time for innovation and research. Take data driven decisions. Develop and/or implement features based on data intelligence, testing.
