Building the new WP Job Manager website
Mike Jolley (lead developer of WooCommerce), builds the WP Job Manager plugin on the side. He’s a wizard like that. The plugin is very slick, and has gained popularity consistently since its launch. There have been over 55,000 downloads to date.
WP Job Manager addons were previously sold on Mike’s personal site, using Gumroad (a hosted digital download / eCommerce overlay). Mike has now launched WPJobManager.com and setup the plugin to sell add-ons with WooCommerce.
WP Job Manager is a similar model to WooCommerce, with a free base plugin and paid add-ons. The plugin has 7 in-house add-ons, but amazingly there are also 13 third party add-ons, some free and some paid. Add-ons for paid listings, various third-party software integrations, alerts, and application deadlines are just some of what’s available.
I enjoyed Mike’s insight talking about the move of WP Job Manager to its own site, and you should also check out the new site — it’s quite nice. If you’re looking for a job listings plugin, this is a great option with a bright future.
We’ve used WP Job Manager for a few sites. We recently removed it from the WordPress Orlando Meetup site, in favor of a new site to handle jobs for all of the tech meetups in Orlando. Definitely a good plugin and addons (we use a few of the paid ones there), and Mike has been super responsive on emails/requests.
For as now I used a different plugin which costs around 50$ and after reading your suggestion I think its complete useless as it has very less functionality if compared to yours.
This looks pretty cool. Does Mike still work for Woo? If so, what happens if Woo decides to get in this space?
my site run on a wordpress with the wp job manager and works great, its an easy option to create a job board without developer knowledge
@Carl – Yes Mike still work for Woo, definitely!
