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 remoteok.io... 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.

Hi Pieter, already have a chrome extension called Remoteable using the API here https://chrome.google.com/websto... Maybe check it out and give your blessing? πŸ™‚

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 remoteok.io.json. 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. https://youtu.be/FSanKBmH7is

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.
