As you may or may not know, the idea for Qualified came about from feedback from the Codewars community. Some years ago, Codewars users involved in developer hiring made it clear that there was a need for a developer-friendly coding assessment platform that focused on actual coding skill, not just algorithm solving.
It's 2022 now and we're happy to say that both Qualified and Codewars are at a nice point of maturity and growth. Recently, we've been thinking about how to tie the two closer together. While separate platforms, the core mission of Qualified and Codewars is to provide value to the developer community.
A good next step in this mission is to introduce the community to career opportunities. To this end, we're excited to announce Qualified Jobs.
For job seekers, the board lists actual jobs from actual employers. No recruiter spam or fake listings, ever. You can filter and sort by job roles, career level, technologies, and location. You can also submit your resume to join our talent network (curated jobs matching is something we're looking into).
For employers, the board provides access to a large and engaged community of over 3 million developers. Your jobs will show in spaces on high-traffic pages of Qualified and Codewars, as well as in our newsletters.
This is just the start. We know that developers typically don’t have a hard time finding opportunities. To be truly helpful, we want to match developers to the right opportunities. This means personalized listings tailored to each individual developer’s goals and skills. It also means opportunities beyond jobs, like continuing education, volunteer causes, and technical certifications. Ultimately, we want to be the bridge between where a developer is today, and where they want to be in the future.
