New IT Job Site For Architects Offers Free Listings

We can’t tell if it was the last one to launch in 2007 or the first one to announce in the new year, either way the world has another job board. is a niche site specifically for jobs in a narrow slice of the high tech world: IT architects, a specialty that is one part technologist and more parts communicator, planner and business strategist.

You may be thinking “Aren’t there plenty of sites to post jobs like this” and the answer is certainly yes. Dice , IEEE , Craigslist all come to mind. So what will get tech companies to post to this site? In a word, free. For the next three months, posting is free for the first 100 companies.

That may not mean much since the site has little traffic and the press release announcing its launch and the free posting program offered no insight on how it would build an audience. The 35 jobs on the site include one that must have come from a recruiter pitching a member of the ITArchitectjobs team.

Still, filling a req for a information technology architect is not easy, so go ahead and post to the site. As our grandma used to say, “What can it hurt?” But do it before the U.K. based company actually begins trying to collect the 50 pounds per post fee. That’s almost 100 American dollars at the current exchange rate.

UPDATE (1/10/2008): ItArchitectjobs director, Amer Mahroof, emailed us to say that the odd job posting we mentioned has been removed and “and have contacted the company in question to let let (them) know that they were in breach of our terms by posting that particular position.”
