7 Job Board Success Stories [2023]
Start A Job Board

Starting a job board is the easiest way to make money online and have others work for you. This is one of the most underrated ways of creating an online business with no start-up costs. The global online job board market size was $28.68B in 2019 and is projected to reach $43.39B by 2027.

It's no secret that finding a job can be tough. In a time when we have to work harder for less money and resources, it's tempting to give up looking for work altogether. Thankfully, there is another option: starting your own job board.

Here are some real life success stories of starting a job board:

Case Study

Hey! I’m Gino Ferrand and I’m the founder of TECLA. I’m originally from Lima, Peru, and I’m currently living in Seattle, Washington. My business makes it easy for startups to interview and directly hire software developers from an invite-only network of the top talent in South America (same time zones as the U.S.).

I started TECLA in 2013 with $15k in total investment from my own savings. The business has always been 100% bootstrapped. Today, we are a team of 12 full-time (core) team members, 5 part-time contributors, and a network of 9,000 tech professionals, working remotely (from home) from countries like Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Peru, Mexico, Colombia, and Uruguay.
