1. What's Landing.jobs?

We're a tech hiring marketplace for tech jobs focused on creating perfect matches between tech pros and the companies that need them the most.

2. Why Landing.jobs?

We’re tech professionals too, and we know what you’re worth and the increasing value of that worth. We live in a candidate-driven market where there aren’t enough people with skills for the jobs available. That makes you very attractive to employers, and we want to match you to the best opportunity of the many you will have coming your way.

3. Is my profile anonymous?

Yes!
Even if you apply for a job offer, the only information shared with the employer will be the profile information that you allow us to share. This also applies to referrals.

4. I've registered. Now what?

You can search and filter for specific job offers that might interest you. If you feel confident, you can apply right away or you can simply bookmark the ones you like. You can also refer your friends for jobs they might like and receive a reward if they get hired!

5. I'm not a digital worker, what can I do then?

Everyone is free to join our platform but our main target is digital talent. I’m sure you’ve got several techie friends, so go ahead and refer them. If they get the job, hey, you may get a referral reward and can buy them dinner. ;)

6. What kinds of jobs will I be able to find on Landing.jobs?

Front-end and back-end developers, DevOps, data scientists, product managers, scrum masters, UX designers, growth hackers, digital marketers, hardware developers. From junior to lead positions! We’re focused on the tech and digital jobs driving the biggest, fastest-growing and most innovative companies in the world - well, we’re pretty much focusing on Europe for now, but we get a job offer for the States and Asia every now and then...

7. What if I'm not in the region mentioned in the job offer?

That’s not a problem! You only have to pay attention to the job offer description where it says if they offer support with relocation. Also, we’re constantly working on getting more full-time or part-time remote job openings. Use the filters on the search bar to sort them out.

8. What's in it for me to refer a friend or get referred by someone I trust?

Each job offer has a reward that double motivates you to refer a job to a friend who you think has the best-fit. According to our research on how to make a great referral, candidates who provide an employer with a great referral have a higher chance of getting hired.

9. After referring a friend, what are the next steps? What are my friend's chances of getting hired?

Your friend will receive a notification (via e-mail) to apply for the job. We'll let you know as soon as your friend applies.

10. What kind of reward will you give me?

Every job has a cash reward that you can earn by successfully referring a friend for a specific role. You can choose between getting the cash transferred to your account or in vouchers (Amazon, Fnac, etc). If you opt for a bank transfer, we will require an invoice from you, though. Sorry, accountants say so!

11. How do I claim my reward when a referral leads to a hire?

Following a one month guarantee period after your friend's first day at the new job, we’ll contact you directly to work on some final details. We’ll transfer the cash reward or send you the voucher within 60 days.

12. What if someone else has also referred a particular role to the same person. Do I still get my reward?

We decided to keep things simple and reward only one referrer. It's up to the candidate to select which referral is the best one.

13. What if I want to refer a job offer to more than one friend?

The more quality referrals the better!

14. How do I keep track of my referrals or applications?

You will be able to find a list of both sent and received referrals and applications you did by accessing your personal dashboard here.

15. Do I have to give back the reward if my friend quits the job after the guarantee period ends?

No. Once you received the reward, it's yours. Maybe buy your friend a drink?

16. What if I want to apply for a job myself?

No problem! Go ahead and apply and select a friend to refer you!

17. If a friend refers me to a job that I don't fit, but I know someone else who does. Can I refer that person?

Sure! Role-switch: you're now the referrer!

18. I'm an independent recruiter can I refer someone?

Yes. If you've done your homework then you should be able to make a great referral.

19. What's Landing.jobs?

We're a tech hiring marketplace for tech jobs focused on creating perfect matches between tech pro’s and the companies that need them the most.

20. Why Landing.jobs?

We have the expertise to attract, evaluate and engage tech professionals for you - because that’s who we are, too. We know the difference between Java and Javascript.
Our operations team verifies all job openings at employers to make sure there are no spammers fishing for contacts and we offer paid peer referrals to our highly-skilled members who know their networks better than recruiters ever could.

21. Do I have to pay to post a job offer?

No, it’s free to post a job. Only pay per successful hire!

22. What type of candidates will I find in your platform?

Our main focus is digital talent and they are the most active in our platform: software developers, UX designers, digital marketing professionals, project/product managers, etc. You can go to our job offers and use the filters to check out the kind of positions we usually have on offer.

23. How can I create a job offer?

You'll simply need to go to our For employers section and select what kind of job offer you want to post, a premium or a basic.
After that, you have to register your company and you’re ready to post the job offer. Our team will then review it and publish it so that everyone can see it.

25. Is Landing.jobs an agency?

Nope! We’re a tech startup operating a marketplace between verified employers and top tech professionals who are looking for their next great job. Our product continually evolves to allow both self-service and human-powered services in scouting and account management. We don’t just know about technology roles, we understand them, and our registered members recognise that.

26. A job offer I submitted got rejected. Why?

  1. You're a recruitment or staffing agency. We want to keep our list of tech jobs clean and curated. No middle-men inside.
  2. You didn't provide credible company information. Your office is not on the moon.
  3. Your job offer is confusing or badly written. Come on, we’re not fooling around here.
  4. You're job offer is not legit. E.g. you’re looking for a business partner or a slave.

27. How do we promote your job posting?

Our marketing team can promote your job openings through our network of affiliates, social media and other online channels. Also, our Premium plan offers dedicated account management which ensures you find those unicorns you hear so much about, plus you might get a mention or two in our newsletter :)

28. How long will my job offer be live?

Your job offers will be on display for 90 consecutive days.

29. How do you control application quality?

We're developing an algorithm that assesses the quality score of each referral. Right now we're on manual mode.
Someone once said do things that don’t scale. Until you figure out how to make a computer do it better, that is.

30. Any advice to have a successful hire?

Start with a job description that’s clear in what it expects of successful candidates, and also shows your company’s personality. Provide as much information as you can to the Landing.jobs team, and if we ask for clarification on anything, try and be prompt so we can make sure no candidates are left on hold. Nobody likes that! We’re here to help.

31. After a hire how does the payment works?

Congrats! A hire! Wahey!
At Premium, you are charged 11% of the lucky person’s gross annual salary. So, if their salary was €50,000 a year before taxes, we’ll charge you €5500 on the first working day of your new employee. Then we’re even.
If you went Basic, it works the same but our fee is 7% of the GAS.

32. How do I calculate the gross annual salary (GAS) in case my new hire is starting with a fixed-term contract?

GAS = 12 * (contract value) / (contract length in months)

33. How does the warranty works for Landing.Hires?

In case of upfront payment of the fee: If, for some reason, the employer decides not to keep the new hire, or if the hire leaves the employer within a 90 day guarantee period after his/her starting date, Landing.jobs will re-open or keep the job offer live until a new candidate is hired by the employer, at no extra cost.
