Nice job Pieter. 2 Questions - 1. How is it gonna help you ? 2. Are you gonna be closing it if someone builds replica of Remote OK just like they did it with NomadList ?

@deadcoder0904 Great questions! No. Remote OK has had a public RSS feed for years now. Now I've built this full API firehose in JSON. The goal here is increasing the amounts of applicants a remote job gets so that the company can recruit from a bigger pool of hiring talent. By increasing distribution (through this API), hopefully that goal is reached. So opposite of the Nomad List API: the more people use this, the more valuable a Remote OK job post will be for companies that are hiring remote workers.

@deadcoder0904 @levelsio So companies will be actually posting a job offer on all the sites that use the Remote OK API just by posting the job offer on smart!

@deadcoder0904 @levelsio That's smart. So basically creating new jobboards partially (or who's to say, fully) using your data through the API would increase the value of a job post in Remote OK since it would be displayed in more places around the web ^^ Maybe it would be nice to keep track of that, somehow.

@deadcoder0904 @mauriciob91 That's right! Higher distribution means more applicants. Long term I could also pay the participating sites if they help forward the hired applicant!

@deadcoder0904 @tcodinat Exactly. I keep track of that through HTTP Referrers (yep they still work if it's both HTTPS), but will improve on that later.

Hello Guys. I'm from Brazil and found remote ok recently, and I did like it. Then I decided do an iOS app using the Now, I'm finishing the app. It isn't finished I finished approximately 85% some things are missing yet. I would like to know if I can send to app store and publish the app. If you can see the app demo, I share on my youtube account.

Hi - this is great, and can be super useful to build upon! Quick question - is the date key when job went live on the source site or remoteok? And do you consider updates on the source site in any way?

@adityarao310 Thanks Aditya! On Remote OK! Yep, I'm considering adding "job is closed" for example to make it easier for recruiters to signal they've filled a role.
@adityarao310 @levelsio That would actually be helpful. Thank for releasing the API.
