Those who are gazing for something different from normal software development as a career for themselves, an expert site Hacker Jobs UK recently launched in UK. It is run  by developer and Hacker News London attendee Jon Gilbraith and former tech recruitment consultant turned web project manager Steve Buckley.

According to the Hacker Jobs UK blog, the service was set up because “There is a sincere lack of high quality job boards available for the tech community in the UK. There are plenty of options for job seekers out there but they are either saturated by recruiters or the jobs are incredibly generic and middle of the road.”

“Jon and I sat together in a pub after another successful Hacker News London meet-up and started discussing how some of the current ‘popular’ job boards make millions of pounds every year despite advertising mediocre jobs on ugly sites with terrible UI/UX. We concluded that the primary reason these sites were just terrible examples of the industry are because they catered primarily for their number one revenue stream which is the recruitment industry,” Steve Buckley, explains its origins.

Currently coders in hot demand, it’s put to grow to be a admired destination both for job hunters and those seeming for new staff. There’s even an prospect for a CTO/Co-founder.The site put up with a good start for the tech society with jobs accessible for developers of iOS and Android, web, C++ and Qt as well as a role for UX designers. Locations presented at the moment include London, Huddersfield and Edinburgh.
