The Global Computer Employer Index

Posted 23 May 2015 at 05:06 UTC by MichaelCrawford Share This

My aim in building The Global Computer Employer Index is to link directly to the "Jobs" or "Careers" section of tech company websites. Unlike the more-common job boards, I don't list individual jobs, rather it is up to each company to list them on their own sites. Job board posts are taken down when the position is filled, or when the term they are paid for expires. My listings are permanent.

Do not be dismayed if your company is not listed; just mail your homepage to There is no charge for this service nor will there ever be.

The page for Santa Cruz County explains how this started back in 1997. Last year I decided to cover the entire planet.

When I add new cities I post announcements on my What's New? page.

I take requests if you'd like me to post employers in any specific location.

So far I've been doing this all by hand, quite laboriously. I may seek crowdfunding to enable me to devote myself to this full-time, to write some automated tools as well as to hire a web designer. It would be helpful were you to constructively criticize the rough draft of my crowdfunding pitch.

Some folks who came up with a better way to harvest honey from beehives raised six million bucks at IndieGoGo. I don't need nearly that much but if I do pursue crowdfunding, I hope to raise enough to devote myself to this for a year, as well as to pay that designer.

Just a few so far.
