Review:

Ruby Now is a niche job board that connects employers with Ruby on Rails professionals in Canada and abroad. The platform gives companies access to their pool of more than 10,000 developers, programmers, technical leads, and engineers.

Ruby Now offers several job posting plans and various hiring tools, such as social media promotion, featured listings, and targeted email alerts. While Canadian employers can use the job board to find both local and global Ruby on Rails talent, the site lacks local customer support and pricing is not available in Canadian dollars.

Pros:

  • Employers can use Ruby Now to advertise a range of Ruby on Rails vacancies in Canada and abroad.
  • The platform offers an assortment of job posting packages to suit different hiring needs.
  • Listings stay live on the site for 45 days.
  • The platform shares job posts to their Twitter account.
  • Job posts are sent to candidates via daily, weekly, or monthly email alerts.
  • The "Expert" package pins employers' listings to the top of the site's email feed for 30 days.
  • Jobs are listed immediately after employers complete the posting process.
  • The platform offers additional hiring solutions for employers having difficulty recruiting candidates.

Cons:

  • Ruby Now does not have a free job posting option.
  • The website is not avaliable in French.
  • Pricing is only available in U.S. dollars.
  • The site does not offer bulk job posting packages.
  • There is no local customer support available.
  • The platform lacks candidate matching and applicant tracking features.

Ruby Now charges US$79.00 for a basic job post but does not list pricing in Canadian dollars, while a single vacancy costs C$325.00 on ITjobs.ca.

Ruby Now vs. BetaKit:

While BetaKit lists jobs in the local tech and IT industries, Ruby Now exclusively advertises Ruby on Rails vacancies. However, Ruby Now is the more affordable option, charging US$79.00 for a basic listing, whereas BetaKit charges C$300.00 for a single listing. Both sites offer social media promotion, but Ruby Now also has featured listings.
