The 5 best recruiting sites for developers in 2024

We shared with you the best sites for job search, in a previous blog post. Today we are taking a closer look at the sites and new platforms specializing in Tech/Web recruitment, and which will be of particular interest to developers.

We analyzed a panel of sites offering job offers for developer positions to select only the top 5 of the best Tech recruitment platforms.

These sites generally offer CDI, CDD, internship, work-study offers and also some Freelance missions.

We have chosen to only retain platforms specialized in Tech professions, removing the great classics (Linkedin, Indeed, etc.)

Licorne Society, the platform specializing in startup and scale-up recruitment

Licorne Society is a recruitment platform dedicated to startups and scale-ups. Although it is not specialized in Tech professions, the fact that it exclusively lists job offers from startup and scaleup jobs makes it a reference platform for recruiting devs.

The link to register directly on the platform: Registration Unicorn Society

Thus, the platform functions as an aggregator and search engine for job offers, and redirects you directly to the job sites where the advertisements have been posted.

The strong advantage is the saving of time since all startup and scale-up job offers are centralized on the Licorne Society platform, regardless of the origin of the advertisement.

Another strong point, as with WeLoveDevs, you can be directly contacted by the Licorne Society recruiter teams who will contact you for their client’s Tech needs.
