And are you affiliated to these jobs in any way? Do you have a commercial interest in them?
These sites may work for you, but I am annoyed I wasted my time even clicking the links.
No instant value means you'll miss a large segment of users.
BTW, if you're not on Telegram you can also receive the same jobs via email creating an alert at https://findmegigs.com/?remote=true (it shares the backend with the Telegram channels)
If you're in financial trouble somehow or can't afford the paid plan on FindMeGigs that sends you all the jobs, DM on Twitter (https://twitter.com/xoelipedes) and I'll give you a free unlimited account for free.
Why not WhatsApp or Signal then?
None of them has a working public API as far as I know.
I'll make open newsletters in the future as well, for the people that are not on Telegram. Thanks for your comment! :D
Not saying I am anti-Telegram, but I have never used it, nor know how it works.
Why not a website? It seems like that's what everyone is asking for.
In the meantime, you can receive the same jobs via email creating an alert at https://findmegigs.com/?remote=true (it shares the backend with the Telegram channels)
Any particular reason this shouldn't be the default state for information though? It would seem that any sort of task that benefits society as a whole is made significantly harder by not making things web-based, accessible and durable.
If this is "senrio jobs for telegram users" that's different. I'm not getting that message though.
Do you think that something like 'Show HN: Senior Remote Jobs on Telegram' would have been a better title?
I'm an unemployed senior developer; your exact target audience!
Pretty much 90% of the time someone wants me to install (or sign up for) some "thing," it's just some kind of gimmick or has no traction. This is especially the case as a senior developer, where part of my job is healthy skepticism for software I've never heard of.
So, IMO, the biggest challenge is communicating what Telegram is and convincing me that I should use it.
(That doesn't mean using Telegram is wrong; but when you're using something so new that no one's heard of it, you need to take ownership of promoting it.)
I've made over 50 channels for different roles, from C-Level stuff like CTO, CPO positions to very language-specific channels like Rust, Haskell or React.
What I like the most about how I've structured it is that (once you're on Telegram) it's very easy to explore the different channels because they're linked to each other and there's very little friction to join or leave a channel
Some months ago I made a bot to find remote jobs for myself. Now I made a product of it and it posts jobs to 50+ Telegram channels, with more than 1500 users in total
It's focused in getting high-quality, senior-only remote roles
If you're not on Telegram, you can also get the same jobs via email creating an alert at https://findmegigs.com/?remote=true (it shares the backend with the Telegram channels)
Would love to hear what you think!
Don’t know if Telegram lets you edit old posts, but would be nice to see if a job has been filled.
If you're not on Telegram, I forgot to mention before that you can also get the same jobs creating an alert at https://findmegigs.com/?remote=true (it shares the backend with the Telegram channels)
I don't follow - wouldn't a reguilar web page be the most direct way to communicate? Everything else is an added barrier, or do you mean 1-on-1 direct?
The thing that's valuable here isn't your curation or the jobs, it's the candidates.
I don't even have a smartphone, it's in the repair shop for 30+ days now :)
Over the last few months there’s been remote jobs, jobs that don’t require a car degree, jobs for a specific tech... the space is quickly becoming inflated
I agree with you that seems like there's a new remote jobs board every 2 days popping out. That's why I took a different approach with this, and it went from 0 unique subscribers 1 month ago to 1700+ today, over the 50+ different channels that I created within it. Hopefully they're getting something useful out of it!
Good job finding a niche and running with it!
