Fantastic Job Board

Used daily for 6-12 months
Reviewed 2020-02-20
Review Source: Capterra

Overall rating; 5/5 I highly recommend it to anyone. It's not exactly cheap, but it's more cost-effective than their other competitor (Job Board.IO) and will save you money, time, and headaches if you're using crappy Wordpress plugins.

Pros
Hands down their support, specifically Will - this guy has been amazing with helping us get everything set up effectively. It's a very easy software to navigate, and they have different themes that can be used. We had to hire a developer to help heavily customize the job board through CSS/JS to fit our branding, but this is totally optional. We're a recruitment company and postings from employers might not always completely fill our job board, so MSJB offers Indeed backfilling that helps "bulk up" our postings which is nice so we don't have limited listings. Their e-commerce for job postings is also slick. We used to work with WP Job Manager and it was a total headache keeping on top of all of the changes and updates from other plugins which frequently caused it to crash. Since moving to MSJB, we haven't had to worry about ONCE. Everything is managed and well taken care of on the back-end, and it's so smooth.

Cons
I do have a few things, but these are mainly requests, not cons: 1. Sign in with Google - most employers use this option because they forget their password, so it would be great to have this feature implemented, and hopefully soon. 2. Actually being able to see, create, and vote on feature requests from other users. 3. A Zapier integration, but I believe this is in the works as I write this.

We were #1 job board, 14 days after launch!

Review Source: Capterra

We did an extensive search to identify the various alternatives to establish a jobs platform. This process included reaching out to CTO’s around the country to independently gauge opinion on the options (quality, price, ease of use). This due diligence led us to select Smartjobboard solution to establish JobsInOrtho. We launched JobsInOrtho on November 2, 2020 and within 14 days we were the #1 Orthopaedic Job Board in the United States, this would not have happened were it not for [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] and his team and the Smartjobboard solution. The customer service component of Smartjobboard was, and still is, critical to our ability to create such a platform that is providing significant value across the United States. Kudos to all the Smartjobboard team for their vision and for having created such an invaluable option for organizations that wish to establish job boards in a cost efficient and scalable manner. The simplicity and the value of Smartjobboard are game changing not only for our company but for those we serve (job seekers and employers). - Michael R. Gagnon, MBA Founder & CEO, Academic Orthopaedic Consortium Founder & CEO, JobsInOrtho Chief Administrative Officer- Emeritus Duke University Orthopaedics

Pros
Great value for the price. It's easy to utilize, it's easy to post jobs, it's easy to find jobs. We were able to aggregate all of the jobs onto a single platform using this technology. Job seekers and employers both love the simplicity and functionality of the platform.

Cons
Nothing. We liked everything! Our users are also loving it.

I was concerned about customer service. That is very important to me as I am not a techie I also thought that it might not be as functional as I needed it to be. After reviewing many job board software capabilities, I selected Smartjobboard based on its easy to use interface. It makes posting jobs and viewing jobs very easy.

Pros
Easy to use interface Makes posting jobs and viewing jobs very easy Constantly seeking to improve the product Price is just fantastic for what we get. It's a tremendous value Experience with the team there has been exceptional

Cons
Any additional SEO help is also appreciated as well.

Great design, easy to use, continued improvements. After spending countless hours a day, for weeks, searching, I could not find another product offering that came close. The scalable option has allowed me to get visibility while continuing to improve my model and solicit quality partnerships with industry leading companies. I've received countless compliments on its appearance, made possible by an incredibly easy interface.

Pros
Ease of use, high quality, sensible pricing

This is great for start ups - being very cost effective and allowing you to upgrade your functions as your business grows. The customer support you receive is amazing and the best I have ever experienced with any provider. Its easy to use for both admin and recruiters.

Overall, I'm super happy with SmartJobBoard. It really gets the job done and when we run into bumps, the customer service has been great. THe SJB team is responsive and also just kind.

Pros
This software helped us to enhance the ease-of-use of our job board for both staff and users. The templates are easy to use and fairly customizable. And, there are a number of great bells and whistles to boot. The best part is that it's priced reasonably.

Cons
I would like to see better reporting functionality, and a bit more ability to make changes on the admin side.

Pros
Loved that this product was all-inclusive. No need for additional products other than a domain name and email. I set up Stripe for payments, filled out the details, and could move on to sales and service within a day.

Cons
The price is far more than a blog or Wordpress plug-in. The deciding factor is whether your job board will be profitable enough to justify the costs. I've taken the chance and am enjoying the time saved on maintenance so far to focus on running my business.

Pros
This is a very easy platform to administer and to use. The options are great and the value is tremendous. Plus, I've received great customer service with short response times.

Cons
It could be just a touch more flexible, but that could be solved by hosting on your own server. Plus, the design team is great about helping find ways to solve problems.

Was Fantastic before changing business model

Used daily for 2+ years
Reviewed 2020-12-30
Review Source: Capterra

After spending time, energy and a lot of money to customize the software our market, we had to start from scratch which also cost time and money.

Pros
I had previously given this software 5 stars (2016). At that time you could purchase the software, host on your own server, have complete control to customize or even pay them for customization. We even received regular updates to the software (very reasonable fees). However, they stopped supporting that product and forced users to use their SaaS model where everything is hosted on their site with their limited customizations.

Cons
The part about not being able to download the software to use as you need. You cannot customize more than the limitations they offer. I am sure this is fine if you just want something easy and do not intend to grow. I had used their software and paid to improve it for three years and they change business models.

Response from SmartJobBoard


Thanks for your feedback, Peter!
We understand that having the self-hosted software copy with ability to customize it may seem like a preferable solution sometimes. However, we've found that the hosted (SaaS) option eventually provides much more value to job board owners and users. And the user engagement data we collect from our customers confirms that.
Our mission at Smartjobboard is to provide the best job board experience for admins and end users. And we believe that this can only be achieved with the SaaS model that we currently use.
First, it allows us to provide more frequent updates which we do automatically for all our SaaS customers.
Second, it's just not possible to offer some of the cool features that we've recently developed as a part of the self-hosted solution and only possible to provide in our unique server environment optimized for job boards.
Let us know if you'll be interested in learning how our SaaS solution may significantly improve your job board.

SmartJobBoard is not for shoestring budgets

Used occasionally for free trial

The software was too much job board to learn and too much money for our purposes.

Pros
The software is slick and produces a professional looking job board for your site. You can list up to 10.000 jobs on the basic program.

Cons
The software is pricey and not for people who are looking to post a few jobs on their site. This is for someone who wants to start a job board business. It is unclear when one would be profitable because the software is expensive.

Better Job Platform Than Most and Always Improving

Used daily for 1-2 years

Most importantly: Job seekers visiting our site powered by SmartJobBoard.com consistently tell us they like how easy it is to navigate and perform searches. We tried several other solutions prior to implementing SmartJobBoard and found this optino to be the simplest to get up and running with easy to use admin and posting tools. SmartJobBoard is available at various price points which has allowed us to grow into the product which is an ancilary solution to our core business offerings. SJB is always improving with new features and has been kind to entertain and implement several of our feature suggestions. SJB has plug and play integration with Indeed, Jobs2Careers, ZipRecruiter, JobG8, TopResume, GoogleAnalytics, On the social media front: SJB has a fully integrated Facebook job site app that is more stable and reliable than others we've tested. (Related Tip: If you are working with a job-board or talent marketing tech vendor which claims to have a solution to host your jobs on Facebook yet their own company facebook page doesn't feature this tool - be prepared to do some thorough testing) I was pleasantly surprised SJB's Facebook app is truly plug and play ready in the middle and top tier accounts. SJB is worth checking out and offers a free trial. If you have complex third party integration needs, definitely check with the SJB team before getting in too deep. As I understand it the platform is available in both a hosted and self-hosted option - we have encountered some limitation to desired integrations with the hosted version largely given. SJB powers hundreds of job sites as I understand it... If there was one wish list item I'd love to see from SJB - it would be a Facebook group or similar crowdsourced user community to network and share best practices with.

Pros
Our team is tech proficient enough to be dangerous and perhaps high maintenance at times. Support team is super responsive and patient with our inquiries.

Cons
Lacks function to create job templates - each post is created from scratch via browser or can be uploaded via CSV/Excel file.
