Jowba-- For Startup Companies And Startup Jobs

What Company Is Offering:
Jowba is here to do two things:

Help the right job seekers find you.Make the whole team–building process as easy as possible.
They have a whole strategy to drive high quality, startup–type folks to you, and our product itself is definitely a part of that plan. Your company profile is one of the main angles of attack: sure, tell people about your mission and your products, but also about your team and what it's like to actually work at your startup. Job seekers want to know how big you are, how much funding you have, who your investors are, what your revenue picture looks like, what the office itself looks like (pictures!) and whether or not it's cool to wear sandals to work. You can share as much or as little as you like – every descriptor has a stealth option for all you super secretive operators – but we encourage you to open up as much as post.They've tried to build a great opportunity for you to sell yourselves, so take advantage of it!

How It Works:

Build your profile, and they integrate it with every job posting. Post a job once, and it automatically reposts after thirty days (that's right). When someone applies for one of your jobs, we'll send you the whole resume and cover letter, just a notification, or nothing at all – it's up to you. We store all of the applications in a user–friendly, sortable menu, and make it simple to update your profile, add team comments to job postings, and add new office locations (yep, you can post jobs for multiple company branches, all under the same profile). We think you'll like it, but check it out for yourself.

To help you learn as much as possible about growing startups so you can find where you fit best.To make the job search process as fun and easy as possible.
One of the key additions they bring to the table is the company profile. Where a generic job description tells you diddly about the company itself, Jowba profiles provide an in–depth, behind the scenes look at startups who are hiring. Beyond mission statements and product overviews, don't you want to know how many people are on the team, how much funding they have (and from whom), what their revenue picture looks like, and what it's actually like to work there? We sure do. Check out photos, get to know where the office is, learn more about the team and the environment, and much more. more...

In terms of design and usability, we've tried to include the features and functionality that they have all come to expect from our digital tools. Startup profiles are integrated with the job postings themselves – pretty smoothly, if we do say so ourselves – and we've including capabilities such as social bookmarking, email, RSS feeds (both general and for specific searches), and maps. Everything is searchable, and almost everything is sortable, too. Our detailed search is pretty cool, too – try adjusting your search options to find startups and jobs that are right in your sweet spot.

The point is that it takes a certain type of person to work in a startup, to lead this type of life, and to build something important and lasting. This is why we're here. Jowba is about startup companies, startup jobs, and the startup people who grow them.
The most basic building blocks are company profiles, so that job seekers can find the startup that fits them best. Startups build their profile once, and it's attached to every job they post.
