Jobspotting is closing down

We’d like to let you know that Jobspotting will close down on February 28, 2019.

Since our humble beginnings in 2013, Jobspotting’s recommendation engine has helped millions of people in 12 countries discover the next step in their careers. We’re incredibly grateful for the trust and support you placed in us, and we consider ourselves lucky to have played a small role in your professional journeys.

Although Jobspotting will cease to exist, our mission to connect people with jobs is far from over. We set out to change the old paradigms in the labour market, and in 2017 we joined SmartRecruiters, a company that truly shares our vision. By combining Jobspotting’s powerful matching technology with SmartRecruiters’ innovative recruiting software and massive adoption, we’ll be even better able to help people and companies find each other.

We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to all of you who played a role in this journey. We will leave you with a manifesto that we penned when we founded the company which has served as our guiding principles along the way.

Jan, Manuel, Robin, Hessam, and the JS team

The Jobspotting manifesto

  • We believe that the time of the linear career path is over.
  • We believe that finding a new job should be an exciting journey.
  • We believe that there is an extraordinary amount of talent and unrealised potential.
  • We believe that you can and should have a job that challenges and inspires you.
  • We believe that focusing on your personal happiness will benefit companies too.
  • We believe that careers are too multi-faceted to be narrowed down into search terms.
  • We believe that work is global and that you are not tied to your current location.
  • We believe in informing your decisions through knowledge and data.
  • We believe that work is not the opposite of play. The opposite of play is boredom.
