YT.Careers is a platform that strives to make it easier for creators and talented writers, video editors, and artists to find the right fit to work with.
I've been on both sides of the content creation coin. I've looked for jobs because I wanted to work with YouTubers (and got one thanks to the Marketing Banana project), and I've seen how other creator friends struggle to find good talent for their business.
So I wanted to create a solution to solve these problems, which would make it easier for YouTubers to hire the right person for their business quickly, and would help creative professionals find fulfilling work with ethical creators.
- Summer of 2022: Learned web scraping to collect new job offers from YouTubers automatically
- October 2022: Launched the MVP of YT Careers!
(my first SaaS MVP 🎉)
- November 2022: Starting marketing through Twitter, reaching out, and a newsletter, but saw low traction for this project, and to get better results, I would need to invest way much more time and energy in it. I also saw that I got better results with Software Growth, so I'll focus on it as I can get traction more easily, and because it is more coherent with what I'm doing at my day job, which is managing the product, and marketing side of a SaaS business. I'll come back to YT.Careers later if it makes sense.
- July 2023: After spending a few months improving my coding chops, I came back to this project and was able to ship my first big feature all by myself: I made it so businesses can add YouTube channels to their account from a YouTube channel ID, and so they can also create job posts for their YouTube channels. I just have a few things to fix on the app, and I'll be able to launch it officially on Product Hunt next month.
