- It's hard to know if it would be effective as we haven't tried it again and it's a relatively new community. Yes, we have some very brilliant people in our community that could be potentially awesome hires.
- This is an in-house community for our cloud business, so a very specific community. Other businesses use our services to optimize their applications.
- I see your point here.
We're going for a bit of a mix - a community space with the dedicated subject matter being our product offerings - so a collaborative resource, but sponsored and run by a commercial entity.
We do already have a jobs page and ended up going with something akin to your idea. We put it in our monthly retrospective digest/update including a link to our careers page; but without a specific post in a category.
Thank you for the helpful thoughts and comments. Much appreciated!
