Auctioning Jobs

DeveoperAuction has begun recruiting engineers by using auctions. As reported in TechCrunch, those who are  interested in leaving their current companies and have good credentials can apply to be part of a batch of candidates that potential employers will then bid on to offer them interviews. Software developers can then choose which interviews they want to take. Rather than recruiting agencies' usual commission of 20-20% of base salary, if the process ends with a placement, the employer pays DeveloperAuction 15% which is shared with the applicant.
The company was founded when Matt Mickiewicz, who co-founded 99Designs and Flippa, and LiveOps founder Douglas Feirstein, ran into each other at a conference and started complaining about how difficult it was to hire decent engineers. They started thinking about how to apply auction and game theory to recruiting and from that, DeveloperAuction emerged. 

They must have received A's in Managerial Economics.

  2. I don’t really prefer jobs since that is far less profitable thing for me, I am doing Forex trading with OctaFX broker where they have got great 8 USD no deposit bonus, it is really nice way to start off things especially in this risky business and with such help we can always perform well, so that’s why I really enjoy working with this outstanding company which is forever bringing epic results for me and I really wish this could cotinine.
