Hi! 👋 I'm David Boureau.

I'm building jsdevs to make it easier for JavaScript developers to find their next gig.

jsdevs is an official fork of railsdevs, by Joe Masilotti, who originally built it for Rails developers.

The story

I've been an independent developer for the past five years. And leads are rarely consistent. Sometimes I can't keep up with the work and other times I struggle to find my next gig.

And job boards are rarely helpful for freelance and contract work. They're focused on full-time roles.

jsdevs strives to give power back to the independent developer. Instead of companies posting their jobs, developers post their profiles. That way, the power dynamic is reversed as companies have to reach out to developers first.
