When I began Authentic Jobs back in September 2005 with a mere $2,000 investment, I never expected it to help as many employers and job candidates as it has.

Authentic Jobs began life as a pet project on, created as a means of answering the several emails I’d receive each month from companies asking me, “Do you know anyone who can do ________?”

At the time, I added jobs manually to the site and later invested a mere $2,000 to automate the listing process. I never expected Authentic Jobs to grow into the full-fledged business it is today. This has been a pleasant surprise, to say the least.

My vision for the site has remained unchanged since day one: Authentic Jobs connects talented web and design professionals with great companies and work opportunities. I know, that sounds like marketing fluff and all that. But that’s really why the site exists and how it’s helped lots of people work together.

All this is to say that if Authentic Jobs doesn’t help you connect with the right candidates, I don’t want your money. I want you to walk away (and hopefully come back) satisfied no matter what.

If you’re not completely satisified, please request a free reposting or a full refund by replying to any of the emails you receive from us, by submitting a request through our contact form, or by emailing me directly. I’ll issue your refund in the same form of payment it was received, and that’s that. No hassle. Easy peasy.

So, post a job and give it shot. You’ve got nothing to lose, literally. Good luck finding your next hire!

These people gave us two thumbs up.

We’ve since returned the thumbs in exchange for the following remarks.

  • Jim Lastinger, Founder, MediaLeaf Technologies:

    I had never posted a job opening online before, but Authentic Jobs made it beautifully simple to do so. The quality of the applicants far exceeded my expectations and I was able to fill the position in just a few days. Thanks for keeping the process simple and quick.

  • Michel Floyd, CTO, Sydney-based YouGov:

    We were able to fairly rapidly fill our listing and we closed our posting. For these positions (front-end developers) AuthenticJobs provided a much richer and steadier stream of candidates than LinkedIn or Facebook.

  • Ed Ireson, Co-founder, Sydney-based Mutual Mobile:

    We filled this position extremely fast.Thanks again for running AuthenticJobs. Without a doubt, AJ is one of the most effective job boards for us. Whether it's a designer or iOS engineer, we've had quality applicants from every post, and have now hired at least 5 new people in the past 3 months through AJ.

  • Dave Greiner, Co-founder, Sydney-based Freshview:

    After 6 months and finally accepting that we’d probably never fill the position, we decided to give Authentic Jobs a go. Within 2 short days we found the amazing interface designer we’d been searching for. We just relocated him to Sydney and couldn’t be happier.

  • Matt Wigham, Founder, Indie Labs / Big Cartel:

    Authentic Jobs helped us reach the exact type of people we were interested in, and ultimately landed us the designer we were looking for.

  • Erik Dungan, Co-founder, BIG Folio:

    Finding talented designers and Flash developers has been a struggle for us in the past. I was hesitant to use Authentic Jobs—figuring, like other job boards, I’d only get replies from off-shore dev shops. I was thoroughly surprised to get resumes from several talented candidates—both in the US and abroad. I’ll definitely be using Authentic Jobs in the future.

  • H.G. Chissell, Manager of Channel Development Viridity Energy, Inc:

    I am overwhelmed with applicant emails. I found excellent candidates and will use the service again.

  • Shane Atlas, Chief Operating Officer Best Buys:

    After using several popular freelance services for years and never finding a team or individual that met my needs, I was referred to Authentic Jobs and decided to give it a try. Within a week I had quality applications from more developers than I had ever found and I was able to put together an incredible team. In fact, I got so many GREAT applicants that I may never need to look for a developer again! Thanks!

  • Matt Weinberg Vector Media Group:

    This was another great Authentic Jobs experience (my third). We’ve gotten a ton of qualified applicants—in fact, more than we can handle. They are certainly professional, and we’re now figuring out which one of our two favorites we’re going to end up going with. Thanks again for the more-than-fair pricing, and the nice-to-have but never needed satisfaction guarantee.

  • Lachlan Laycock Jackson Laycock:

    We’re getting totally flooded by responses! We found our guy within a few hours. Many thanks and will be doing more in the coming days.

  • Sara Cowles, Manager of Interactive Services Valtira:

    Kudos from the team at Valtira and enStratus—we love your site. As application designers we find ourselves making mental notes of your elegant and user friendly interaction design. We’ve also had great candidates come through—so please count us among your fans.

  • Jeff Lin, Founder Bust Out Solutions, Inc:

    Just wanted to let you know that I posted a job probably two years ago for a designer, got several responses, and ultimately found one guy who I tried to hire. It didn’t work out at the time, but we kept in touch, and I finally hired him a few months ago.

  • Stephen Megitt Filament Creative:

    The amount of quality CVs with quality portfolios far outweigh the ones the make you give your head a shake and pray for the sender. Well worth the $75.

  • Walter Apai Webdesigner Depot:

    Your site is always the best—I’ve posted on 37 Signals, Krop, Smashing Magazine, Jobs on the Wall, etc. But yours always brings the best people.

  • Mike Faulhaber motorfocus:

    Without a doubt we received the best quality responses from Authentic Jobs. It’s a no-brainer for reaching the brainy — and a bargain, to boot.

  • Tom Carmony, Principal Bainbridge Studios LLC:

    I have to say, Authentic Jobs never fails to drum up some real talent for our gig listings. As a sole proprietor, it’s the best $75 I’ve spent when building teams for larger projects.

  • Alec Rosen Option4 Interactive Solutions:

    We got excellent results and I do have enough contacts to build the entire web 3.0.

  • Sam Rosen ThoughtLead:

    I found a great front-developer/designer through Authentic Jobs. Well done!

  • Jon Millikin, Director of Operations

    I posted a job ad yesterday for a PHP Programmer and have gotten an overwhelming reply. Thanks to your website we found someone for the position.

  • Maurice Calhoun, Web Developer Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia:

    I was out of work for about 2 months. I had went to as I normal do to see if there was anything new happening on the web. Oddly enough I have been to your site many times, but never notice the ‘Authentic Jobs’ link in the sidebar. So I click on it and saw a really cool posting for a job that was based in Atlanta Georgia. The first thing I did was, I ask my wife, ‘How far is Atlanta from Tuscaloosa?’ We prayed, and then I applied for that job. That was almost a year ago and I love it here.

  • Tina Shah, Designer/Developer Tina Shah:

    This is a great website! I’ve been looking for a website where I can go to get good freelance design jobs. Most of the jobs on and are labeled wrong and not geared toward design. The postings that you have on here are great! I immediately added the RSS feed and check it everyday to see the new postings. Thanks!

  • Katrina McKinnon (Australia), Motive:

    I posted a freelance position on your site yesterday for 75 bucks. Within these few hours I have received a hundred or so responses — a few of them exceptional, most of them good and only a few absolute duds. That’s quite possibly the best 75 I’ve spent for a while. Thanks for making the service you made. I appreciate it.

  • Graham King, Pacifica Group:

    We got about 70 applications, from six countries, many on the same day the ad was posted, and not a single time-waster. The person we hired has done a fantastic job, and we will be asking them to collaborate on future projects. Thanks.

  • Rudy Rouhana Rights Agent:

    I think your site is fantastic, and have been amazed at the responses I’ve received. I really couldn’t possibly be happier with the results.

  • Shane Lennon, SVP Strategy & Marketing GyPSii:

    We have gotten over 20+ responses and more that enough capable candidates. Great site and very impressed with the broad range of skills and expertise from people who applied.

  • Jim Ballard Michigan Association of Secondary School Principals:

    Your site did the job for us. We had some great candidates to choose from. We have hired one of them. It brought in some very highly qualified people.

  • Michelle Robbins Third Door Media:

    I have to tell you how pleasantly surprised I am at the sheer volume of extremely qualified candidates that have responded to the listing. However, I’m getting buried :-) I’ve already sorted through and have a list of more than 10 candidates I want to follow up with - as it is a freelance position, I’m confident I’ll be able to find one or two that will fit the bill.

  • Shannon Peterson Shelf Reliance:

    We got some very viable candidates! We didn’t end up hiring from the replies from Authentic Jobs, but we were impressed with the resumes we got. In the end, we are glad we used your service.

  • Rob Baker, Development Analyst Oxfam America:

    After one week up on the site the response was overwhelmingly good with more than enough qualified candidates submitting applications. This is a great service and we’ll certainly be using it in the future.

  • Andrew McClain

    Just wanted to let you know how pleased we were with the Authentic Jobs listing. The biggest problem we had was choosing which talented designer to hire!

  • Eric Eldredge, Designer Hirshorn Zuckerman Design Group:

    I recently landed a great full time position through your site — the kind of job I’ve been casually searching for well over a year. When AJ launched, I had a feeling it would prove an invaluable resource, and in my case, it surely has. Quality over quantity indeed!

  • Peter Flaschner, Creative Director The Blog Studio:

    Cameron, the response has been fantastic. Best $75 I’ve spent in a long time.

  • Matthew Schwartz, President Matthew Schwartz Design Studio:

    I got one response from my listing, and he was our final hire. He’s been here several months now; he’s a great asset.

  • FJ de Kermadec, Founder Webstellung:

    This little note is to thank you for your outstanding help through your Authentic Jobs venture. Thanks to your site, we were able to not only hire one freelancer but two and mark four down for potential work down the line, all in a single week.

  • Andy Beeching, Web Developer Double Eye:

    Out of over a hundred applicants to the role, I was the only one to apply through your site, and one of only three to gain an interview. I believe my application was immediately given more weight due to the fact it came via your job board, and I got the position! It’s well known that your blog is very popular amongst ‘standardistas’... hence I had already gone a long way to fulfilling the ‘standards aware’ requirement for the position.

  • Andrew Shearer, Online Communications Manager (company withheld):

    You might be interested to know that the reason I need to post this job opening is because another company hired away my Interface Developer through their listing on your site! You might also like to know that the way I found (and hired) him in the first place was through a link you published to an article on his site about wicked worn Fireworks techniques. In short, your site has become some kind of hub through which my staff is added and removed. ;)

  • Tim McElwee, Designer Wunderman NYC:

    I just wanted to write a short note thanking you for creating Tomorrow I start a new position that I found on your site. It’s very nice to have a resource for jobs where standards fluent designers and developers know that employers are thinking ahead.

  • Stuart Butler, Project Manager Intellistrand:

    The quality of the applicants far surpassed any other site we had used in the past, including and If you are looking to fill a very specific position that requires a qualified candidate, there aren’t any better options out there than Cameron’s website.

  • Jody Ferry, Design Director WebLinc:

    Cameron’s listings have offered us an efficient and targeted means of finding high quality applicants for all our creative and marketing HR needs. Simply outstanding.

  • Chip Diffendaffer, Web & Digital Media Manager University of Denver:

    The people I am looking for now and in the future would hopefully know Authentic Boredom and the rest of the standards circle.

  • Virgil Wong, Head of Web Services New York-Presbyterian Hospital:

    Great designers associate with other great designers. By listing our job opportunities on your site, we’re aligning ourselves with an audience that likewise appreciates unequivocally beautiful and functional design. While posting on certainly offers a larger quantity of candidates, your site ultimately provides far better quality.

  • Aaron Dragushan of Wondermill Webworks posted detailed results from their quest to find a designer using several targeted job boards. Cost per qualified applicant was higher with Authentic Jobs than a couple others but ultimately helped them find the final hire.
  • Mark Wyner, CEO/Founder LeagueFriend:

    Three jobs posted and three jobs filled. All with well-qualified people. And with a super-smooth interface, what's not to love?

  • Christopher Schell, Vice President, Habitat Manager Design Rangers, Inc.:

    We found the perfect fit through Authentic Jobs! It was the first place I thought of when we needed to post for our first full-time hire for our design firm. By far, the best (and in our opinion only qualified) candidates came through Authentic Jobs. We're happy to report that our new web designer Ben is an amazing fit and someone we would have never found through traditional avenues.

  • Ryan Hertz, Web Designer & Front End Developer:

    I really love Authentic Jobs. The ability to find quality remote jobs has given me the confidence to start focusing on a freelance career.
