First Job Board Live!

Chris Oliver
It's been a while in the making, but JobBoardly.com is up and running and I've launched the first job board:

https://jobs.gorails.com

Feels really good to finally have it working. 

After announcing, we got 25+ jobs posted in the first week. It's kind of crazy.

We made the call to skip payments for now to get the launch done and see if anyone will use it. So far, so good. 

In the next few weeks, I'm working on adding marketplace payments to the Pay gem. This will power the JobBoardly job post payments, but also serve as the foundation for any Jumpstart Pro apps that need marketplace payments.

Building is Complicated

Jon Hainstock
Chris Oliver and I caught up today to discuss how things are coming along. Things are taking longer than we hoped, but we are nearly done with the MVP.

We need to add payments and decide how we want to charge for the platform. We might offer it for free until we figure that out.

In this video, Chris and I discuss the struggles of building, the future of jobs, and new opportunities.

Created a Scope

Jon Hainstock
Chris Oliver and I worked on a scope for JobBoardly and talked about how we build products.

We're decided to start small and work towards a Stripe marketplace that accepts payments and sends them to the job board owners.

Market Research and Naming

Jon Hainstock
Chris Oliver and I decided to call the job board "JobBoardly" and bought the domain.

We did some market research and light keyword research to make sure there was some demand for custom job boards.

Here's a video showing our process.

Picking a SaaS Idea to Build

Chris Oliver
Jon Hainstock and I have been planning to build a product for a while now. We have been talking too much without enough building.

Yesterday we decided to start recording and sharing our entire process.
