Transforming your Job Search: new job verticals for candidates

Feb 02, 2024
11 min read

Navigating the job market is an uphill battle filled with uncertainty. It demands persistence and resilience. At Gyfted, we understand the challenges that come with job search – in fact, we hate recruiting ourselves (recruitment is broken and the most inefficient supply-chain in the world in our view – it’s why we’re doing what we’re doing!), especially for those in the knowledge worker sector where competition is fierce and the stakes are high. Today we’re excited to announce new product features for candidates that simplify your job search.

  1. First, we’re curating high quality jobs to create the best remote & work from home job board aggregator in the world. As we don’t represent companies (they don’t pay us for job posts), we’re able to focus on curating quality jobs for you, on giving you powerful filters in a way that’s more intuitive, tailored, and centered around you—the candidate.
  2. Second, while we do this roll out of new remote job categories today (sales, engineering, support), we’ll bring more in the near future.
  3. Third, we’re going to turn Gyfted’s job feed into a truly reverse job board. What’s that? Instead of just applying for jobs, the jobs (recruiters) apply to you when you create a profile on Gyfted’s hiring marketplace. Doing it is easy, fast (under 20 minutes) and valuable as you get personalized assessment feedback throughout the process from us to increase your self-awareness & improve your personal development and career development process.

New Horizons for Job Matching

In our mission to redefine recruitment, we’ve taken a giant leap forward by expanding our remote job feed with new job sub-categories. This is not just an addition of roles; it’s a commitment to improving the candidate experience, ensuring that job seekers can find their perfect match with ease and precision.

Here’s what’s new:

Support jobs

In the realm of Support, we recognize the vital role these professionals play in fostering customer relationships and ensuring product success. To help candidates navigate this diverse field, we’ve introduced specific support job sub-categories:

  • Tech Support: for the problem-solvers and the tech-savvy, roles that are pivotal in troubleshooting and maintaining the technological lifeline of companies.
  • Customer Success Management: where relationship building meets strategic analysis, ensuring customers achieve their desired outcomes while using your product or service.
  • Customer Support: the frontline heroes dedicated to resolving customer queries and providing exceptional service experiences.

Engineering jobs

Engineering is where ideas transform into reality. To cater to the wide array of skills within this domain, our job feed now includes these engineering sub-categories:

  • Backend: specializing in server, database, and application logic, the unseen yet crucial framework of tech products.
  • Fullstack: for the versatile developers who handle both the frontend and backend, crafting complete web applications.
  • DevOps: bridging the gap between development and operations, enhancing collaboration and automation across the software development life cycle.
  • Mobile: tailoring experiences for the on-the-go user, specializing in iOS, Android, and cross-platform development.
  • IT Admin: the guardians of IT infrastructure, ensuring systems run smoothly and securely.
  • Frontend: creating the visual and interactive elements of web applications that users engage with.
  • QA (Quality Assurance): the detail-oriented testers ensuring software meets all standards and requirements before it hits the market.
  • Security: protecting systems, networks, and data from digital attacks, a critical and ever-evolving field.

Sales jobs

Sales is an art and science, requiring a blend of strategy, communication, and insight. To support talents in this dynamic field, we’ve expanded our sales job categories to include:

  • SDR jobs: the tacticians who generate leads and build client relationships, laying the groundwork for successful sales.
  • Tech Sales: specialists who combine deep product knowledge with sales skills to align tech solutions with customer needs.
  • Enterprise Sales: going big fish or whale hunting? Come with us.
  • Business Development: the visionaries focused on creating long-term value, exploring new markets, and fostering partnerships.
  • Sales Engineering: the technical experts who assist in the sales process, demonstrating how a product fits into the client’s environment.

Why This Matters for Job Search

Our enhancements go beyond just listing jobs. We tailor them to job-seekers and uncover what are the pros and cons of a job. This is a fundamental shift towards making the job search process more refined, accessible, and aligned with your aspirations.

By introducing these sub-categories, we aim to:

  • Reduce Noise: filter out irrelevant listings, so you spend less time searching and more time applying for jobs that truly match your skills and passions.
  • Simplify Navigation: easily find your way through jobs – register to get full access.
  • Empower Informed Decisions: access detailed insights into different job functions.
