Rowan Manning started an open-source tool to “Test tech job specs for issues with sexism, culture, expectations, and recruiter fails.”
Anyone who writes or oversees job listings should check this out. It’s simple, but you may be surprised how many job listings in technology will trigger an error, warning or notice in this.
Language matters when it comes to attracting diverse talent, and Joblint can help making your job openings more broadly appealing, and help you avoid common but not-so-obvious mistakes.
Update: the service now has a handy website you can copy-paste a job ad into to test against: joblint.org.
