I'm making a niche jobs board for robotics. Any tips?

Hi all,

I’m a robotics software engineer by trade, I quit my day job just before COVID hit and I’ve been looking for a job since then. I’ve found looking on other job sites to be a bit of a pain - trawling through pages with very few, if any, jobs in robotics. So I thought I’d start building one!

Right now, I just have a landing page https://happyrobot.careers with a sign up for a weekly newsletter and a Twitter page https://twitter.com/HappyRobotHQ. I’m currently building the jobs board itself and I’d love to hear any opinions, tips or feedback you have. I’ll post again once it’s live.
Cheers,
Andrew

A good resource for job openings (and other news) is the robotics worldwide mailing list. (http://robotics-worldwide.1046236.n5.nabble.com/)

Maybe you could even crawl that to add content to your website. Good luck! :slight_smile:

That’s a great resource, thanks very much for sharing! :slight_smile: It would certainly be possible to crawl it, I might contact the maintainers to see what they think.

Thanks, hopefully it might help some people!

There’s also https://www.robots.jobs/.

And for completeness, of course, you should be sure to check our own jobs category.

Thanks for sharing, I’ve checked them out and they’re great resources.

Here’s a preview of what the site might look like:

Some features I am working on:

  • Filter by the type of role: e.g. software, remote, research, internships, etc.

  • Filter by the type of robot you’ll primarily be working with: e.g. humanoid, aerial, industrial, etc.

  • Filter by tags: e.g. C++, SalesForce, Linux, Security, 3D Printing, etc.

Any feedback would be most welcome :grinning:

Thanks for this. I don’t see remote as an option under role.
