Find Nearby Developers on Djangogigs

Posted: June 23rd, 2009 | Author: Scott Barnham | Filed under: Djangogigs | Comments Off

Djangogigs is a very successful job board we run for web developers who use the Django framework. A few jobs and freelance gigs are added each week and there is a large directory of developers available for hire.

Finding Django Developers

As the number of developers increases, it becomes harder to find the person you are looking for. A while ago we added filtering by country, but for large countries such as the US, there are still way too many developer profiles to look through. We now have nearly 700 Django developers on the site and needed to find a better way.

The solution we chose was geocoding the location of each developer so that we can find developers who are close to a given location. Ignoring the technical stuff, it’s very easy to use. Just type in the name of your town or city and get back a list of developers who are nearby.

We’re confident this will make it much easier to find Django developers and may add other search options in future. As always, we’re happy to hear your feedback.

We’ve also added a Djangogigs Twitter account which you can follow to see the latest gigs as they are added.
