At Stack Overflow it’s our mission to match great employers and developers looking for new opportunities. However, our mission doesn’t end with providing smart targeting to show job listings only to the developers with the relevant skill set. We also help companies to better understand their audience and draft job listings that resonate. To be able to do this, we commit to continuous research into which job listings perform best. We go beyond click-through and apply-rates and take the time for qualitative research with candidates you’ll be looking to hire.
