I’m building a reverse job board for Ruby on Rails developers

Hi! 👋 I'm Joe. I'm building a reverse job board to make it easier for Ruby on Rails developers to find their next gig.

I've been an independent developer for the past two years. And leads are rarely consistent. Sometimes I can't keep up with the work and other times I struggle to find my next gig.

[railsdevs](https://railsdevs.com) strives to give power back to the independent developer. Instead of companies posting their jobs, **developers post their profiles**. That way, the power dynamic is reversed as companies have to reach out to developers first.

Oh, the best part? railsdevs is [open source](https://github.com/joemasilotti/railsdevs.com/)!

If you're interested come add your profile. I'd love to help you find your next gig!

  1. I like the language you’re using “reverse job board” sounds much better than a marketplace.

    How’d you end up there?

  2. How do, or can, you prevent (external) recruiters from using this as another avenue for low effort recruiter spam? A one time $300 fee to scrape the database doesn’t sound too prohibiting.

  3. Very nice. Lots of great examples in the source code for a bunch of useful features. Great display of using ViewComponent too (this was something next on my list to check out).

    By the way I think this might be a bug in Hotwire Turbo but try this workflow:

    – Visit: https://railsdevs.com/pricing
    – Click the get started button for either plan while signed out
    – Notice the redirect to the sign up page and flash error message
    – Click the sign in link in the nav bar
    – Click the register link in the nav bar
    – Notice the flash message quickly appears and disappears

    I’m able to reproduce this on my end in an unrelated app too, but it’s good to have a public example to potentially post an issue about.
