Show HN: Dashboard for HN Who Is Hiring

Link: https://who-is-hiring.arxpoetica.com/listing/20083795

Hello all,

I wanted a tool to query against and save job searches and hide irrelevant ones, so I built it. Thought I'd share. Built on the awesome SvelteJS (https://svelte.dev/) framework and equally awesome Sapper (https://sapper.svelte.dev/) deploy platform. The app pulls posts from user `whoishiring` (https://news.ycombinator.com/user?id=whoishiring) on Hacker News, and provides useful tools for sorting and saving settings / filters to localStorage.

Click on the “Home” link to see a list of former posts.

The project is open sourced: https://github.com/arxpoetica/who-is-hiring-dashboard. Pull requests and recommended improvements welcome.

Side note, looking for fulltime work. If you want me to build something in SvelteJS, for example, I'm a contributor. Feel free to hit me up over here: https://arxpoetica.com/. (Don't litter this HN post.)

## Caveats. Here be dragons, traveler, be ye warned.

* This is definitely a WIP, and has its share of problems.

* It uses pretty eager searching against what's essentially text-based querying, so there's a lot of problems on filter / query, such as word boundary searching, etc. So, for example, if you're a Go programmer, trying to query against that term with this setup, good luck. Likewise, “Java” will return all “JavaScript” entries, so that's also really helpful. Sorry for that. I plan on improving it, however, for this to really be useful...

* For this to really be a robust query engine, the HN API job listings would actually need some improvements. It'd be nice to have actual tagged return posts, for example. I think this would require some sort of form submission instead of just plain text submission on the jobs feed, but that would be an undertaking from HN's part.

This is quite cool, thanks for making it! I would add a few more keywords, perhaps by development style (agile, etc) and level (junior dev, senior dev, tech lead, etc)

would be great to have option to sort by date, or at least if should be default one
