dubl

Don't look for your next job.

Ever been bombarded with calls and emails from recruiters promoting irrelevant jobs? dubl connects you with the right Recruiters (or agents, as we call them). Create a profile in minutes, specify what you're looking for and see high quality, vetted agents. You're in control, so agents can only see your profile if you've reached out to them first.

The LinkedIn login doesn't work and there is no way to register though you can login with an email.

*Edit: You can, the button says "Sign In" but it can also create an account :/

Pros:

Interesting homepage

Cons:

Broken login/registration

@austinteague thank you for your review and sorry to hear you've had issues signing up. We've had three other people who've had an issue signing up with LinkedIn which we're currently investigating. I'm afraid it's working for everyone else but we haven't worked out yet why it's failing for a small minority of users. You can, however, sign up with email address and password but if you'd rather wait until we've worked out what the issue with your LinkedIn account is we'll definitely keep you posted. I appreciate your comment around not getting the fundamentals right. Again, this is a bug that doesn't affect most users, it's very poor if your first experience of a product is an issue. I completely agree (although for a different reason) that we won't do get the harder things right the first time. Our team truly believes in the principles behind the Lean Startup, which means we absolutely expect to fail and learn from that over and over. Will we get things wrong? That's almost a guarantee for anyone doing anything! Our aim is to find out as quickly as possible and continuously improve dubl based on that.

@austinteague we've finally worked out what the problem was (it was related to how we were handling some of the information we got back from LinkedIn) so if you tried again now it should work (although I appreciate you may have already have signed up using an email address and password instead). Thanks so much again for flagging this up!
Hi @timohilhorst @frustopio @yosnoor please tell us more about this project - how did it come about?
Hunter
@abadesi thank you for your interest! Here's the story behind dubl: Although starting a new opportunity can be very exciting, looking for a new job is a painful process. Wouldn't it be great if you could outsource your jobsearch to someone? One of our friends told us she'd been using a single, amazing Recruitment Consultant for years. This was someone she knew and trusted, someone who understood her industry and valued the relationship with her as much as he valued the relationships with his clients. Over the years, he helped her find some great opportunities that helped her progress in her career. This guy almost acted as if he was her personal Agent. Inspired by this story, we set out to help more people find their ideal Agent. We found examples of people who'd had similarly positive experiences, but they had one thing in common: they had met their Agent by chance. That's exactly what we're trying to change by creating a new way to connect you with the right Agent.
Hey! I like the idea. Is the platform free for both candidates & recruiters? What's the pricing?
Hunter
@divyadeepsawhney thank you for the positive feedback! We're in validation mode at the moment so we're first trying to figure out how much value it adds to either part of this marketplace. Until we've worked that out the platform is free for all users. Best bet at the moment is that future monetisation would be on the recruiter side but that totally depends on what we can learn over the next couple of months.
@timo_hilhorst kewl. Checking this out now as I’m on the job hunt for remote marketing/ ad work rn. Thanks!
Love this idea, and the story behind it mirrors my own experience for sure. Right now I’m experiencing huge wait times to access the site >5mins and I just encountered an error when I tried to sign up. Just wanted to give you a heads up @timo_hilhorst. Hopefully it’s just temporarily crashing under that Product Hunt traffic!
Hunter
@patrickryanlane thank you so much for flagging that up! I haven't been able to replicate this but we'll have a look first thing in the morning! So sorry for the inconvenience!
@dublornothing no worries! I’ll see if I can replicate and DM screenshots as well.
Hunter
@patrickryanlane amazing thanks!!
@dublornothing looks like it was a localized issue. I can’t replicate the issue, sorry for the hassle! Looking forward to trying this out.
Hunter
@patrickryanlane glad to hear it! If you have any feedback, suggestions or if you run into any other issues please feel free to get in touch with us via hello@dubl.xyz

This is a great concept, however not until I signed up did I find out that they are UK based. Non of the agents will be able to help me as I am looking in the US for a job.

Pros:

Great onboarding process

Cons:

Not in US

Hunter
@ariella_cg thank you so much for your reply! I'm afraid dubl is still in the early stages and we've chosen London as our beachhead market. However, if all goes well we'll hopefully be able to help you in the US soon. Glad you liked the onboarding process!
