JobFly was inspired by Nestio, which now operates as a real estate listing tool for brokers. Nestio started as an apartment search organizer, allowing users to easily grab data from apartment listings and put them into a GUI that allowed users to keep notes on listings they were interested in.
JobFly takes this basic concept and applies it to the use case of job searches with the goal of saving users some hassles while looking for work, and helping them get to their next job faster. Currently, JobFly only uses the Indeed API, but with your support, it can expand to integrate as many of the major job listings sites as users desire.
JobFly is the result of a General Assembly Back-End Web Development final project. The project author, Lei Zhao, graduated from Oberlin College with a degree in Philosophy and East Asian Studies. Lei has previously worked in the nonprofit sector, taking on various roles from development to community outreach management. In 2013, Lei embarked upon an adventure of self-discovery and education in the field of web design and development, and now works as a freelance web designer specializing in customized implementations of WordPress.
