The First Brick in the Backboard

Dribbble is blessed with a lot of talented designers. Accordingly, we’ve had numerous employers ask to advertise open positions on Dribbble, but never an appropriate format to offer them. We’re happy to change that today.

Our first steps toward connecting designers and employers were the Hire Me button and profile Skills. Today we’re announcing a supply-side solution:

Dribbble Job Ads
http://dribbble.com/jobs

True to our minimalist style, job ads represent the simplest thing that (we hope) could possibly work: A list of links to jobs. Wicked simple to post an ad, scan openings, and click to learn more. Job ads also run in the upper right corner of many prominent pages on the site, further exposing employers to the thousands of designers who spend time on the site every day.

Many moons ago, we wrote a post that outlined a model for a sustainable Dribbble (To Infinity and Beyond). We talked about a dedicated space for promotional offerings that mesh with native behaviors on the site. Backboard is what we’re coining that space and jobs is the first brick in the Backboard. As such, there’s now a top-level Backboard menu under which Jobs is found. We plan to improve jobs and add other Backboard features as we progress. (As always, we’ll be hard at work building and enhancing core site features as well.)

We hope this helps even more Dribbblers find high-quality work. As for employers … if you’re trying to score a designer, use the Backboard!
