Review:

Ruby Now is a niche job board that helps employers fill their Ruby on Rails vacancies with talent in the U.K. 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 U.K. employers can use the job board to find both local and global Ruby on Rails professionals, the site lacks local customer support and pricing is not available in pounds sterling.

Pros:

  • Ruby Now caters to both the U.K. and international job markets.
  • The platform offers a variety of job posting packages to suit different hiring needs.
  • Listings stay live on the site for 45 days.
  • The platform shares vacancies to their X (formerly 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.
  • Pricing is only available in U.S. dollars.
  • The site does not offer bulk job posting packages.
  • The platform's social media promotion is limited to Twitter.
  • There is no local customer support available.
