We’ve just launched the VentureBeat JobBoard.
You might say, oh, yet another job board?!
The VentureBeat JobBoard is different because it is the only start-up oriented job board focused exclusively on high-end jobs — those paying $100,000 and up.
It’s relevant because the job market is the tightest it has been in years — and getting tighter. Good employees are hard to find. Employers continue to express frustration with general boards like Craigslist and Monster, because they get flooded with unqualified candidates.
You’ll find more than 100 jobs listed already, including openings at some of the valley’s stealth start-ups like Palo Alto’s Spock, to name just one.
There are listings at companies backed by the valley’s top venture capital firms. There are listings at venture firms themselves, including Sunil Paul’s new clean-tech effort.
The VentureBeat JobBoard focuses on the high-end jobs of its readers. VentureBeat readers are entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, veteran developers and architects, and other technology professionals.
That’s why it makes sense to limit this job board to the high-end. And companies willing to pay $200 will do this only for serious jobs.
The tech start-up sprit of Silicon Valley has gone global, and this job board will follow and serve the geographical constituency of its readers.
Finally, we’ll give good play to the job board on our homepage, via a widget that scrolls through the listings. See image here for example.
Update: We’ve just seen listing for a job less than $100,000, and we’re taking it down. Yes, we’ll be tracking this closely. If you apply for a job, and it turns out to be less than the threshhold, please let us know.
