  • Two Niche Job Boards Making Headlines
    By on January 29, 2019 | Comments Off on Two Niche Job Boards Making Headlines  Comments

    Over the past few weeks I had the chance to interview two niche job boards that are doing good things in today’s job market. The MOM Project helps moms re-enter the the workforce and 70MillionJobs helps those with criminal histories to get hired. These sites are great examples of filling a niche while having a noble mission. In the case of the MOM Project that mission led to a recent round of capital amounting to $8 million bucks.

    So check out these recent interviews and learn about how these job boards make it happen.

    70 Million Jobs is the first national, for-profit marketplace for 70 million Americans (1 in 3 adults) with criminal records. We’ve created a 2-sided marketplace which looks a lot like a job board (from off-the-shelf technology), and are seeing great growth in both jobs facilitated and revenue.

    In the past we’ve worked with a dev shop in San Diego that manages lots of job boards. But we know we can be doing much more. Our small team of 4 is not particularly technical, so we need someone to come in and take ownership of this part of our business. We’d probably need a new job board designed, and we’d like to include certain new HR tech (AI, etc), plus lots of needs regarding data, tracking of applicants, etc. Someone with experience with ATS’s would be helpful, as well as someone very attentive to UX (our applicant users pose certain unique challenges).

    We are a company seeking double bottom line returns: do massive social good and make a lot of money. We’re starting to work with a number of marquee VC’s. Literally everyone loves our mission–this is a chance to build something that truly makes a difference. Our goal is to eradicate recidivism by facilitating the employment of one million deserving men and women. If you’re ready to discover real meaning in your work, we might be a good fit. PS-we’re planning a move from SF to LA beginning of 2019.
