Nice, but I cannot apply for jobs in Switzerland, for example. I am currently living in Brazil, however, as a German citizen I am eligible to work in Switzerland, so that's quite non sense... :(

This looks like a great resource both for finding employment opportunities and keeping informed on what skills are in demand. Thank you.

It will be nice if you can search for online jobs or jobs at distance, I mean, there are many jobs that does not requiere that the employee is on the same building or even country that his employer. I don't care if the company that is offering the job is in Germany and I live on Africa for example, if I can do the job (such as software development, web master, server administration, etc.). I have not seen any job finding tool that let you search using that filter, and I think that on year 2012 that's kind of incredible.

Just feedback :)

Hmm International Linux jobs. Couple of months ago I saw a post offering a reward for and I quote.
"Up to 1000 referral reward for recommending an Embedded Linux Engineer". At first I thought cheek then I thought may be not such a bad idea. Posting and helping your community is a great advertisement. I wonder if recruiters ever look at our pages, the person with the reward obviously did.

It's not really a market. That's just a label. It's a forum where persons who have jobs available can advertise their openings.

The difficult part is getting persons to post openings here. I got lucky--an employer who uses Linux posted an opening and I landed a job. What we need here at LQ is more employers posting openings.

I suspect that a lot of employers don't even know about LQ, let alone know that LQ is full of Linux geeks who want opportunities to work with Linux. If they did, there would be more openings posted.

I don't care that jobs might be posted here that are outside of my area. I would just like to see more visibility for LQ and LQ users.

Its good idea, to start the LQ job market. The people who are let them apply. Many people are looking for the good and right opportunity. Its helpful for them. I wish all the best.

Robert.Thompson 03-16-2012 11:03 AM

Looks good! :)

Can you display a column for the country flags from where applicants are eligible to apply?

freecloud 03-16-2012 11:04 PM

Oh! I have poor knowledge about linux and computer language. I am worry can't write a software about your require.

rayfward 03-17-2012 02:13 AM

I don't how it works anywhere else but in the UK Employers use recruitment agency's heavily and recruiters collect potential employees by the bucket load. I agree with frankbell the first hurdle is getting employers to look at LQ but I would find it objectionable if recruitment agency's posted just collect more people.

Hi, thanks for this great list. I couldn't apply for a EU job 100miles from my city because it was in another country. Remember if you can work in the EU you can work in every country of the EU, not only your home country.

It's a place to find a job...in IT. Need a job? Go to that page...

In belgium, there are quite a few of those, none are specific for IT jobs, and not at all with that global footprint...
