Do you offer an app?
We don't offer an app. Our focus has and will continue to be building the best mobile responsive experience possible. We've chosen to do this over native apps for a couple of reasons:
It allows us to focus all our efforts on the web experience, rather than split resources across Web, iOS, and Android and winding up in a scenario where the native apps always trail the web apps in capabilities.
We think our clients are better served focusing on marketing their websites - getting traction on, and marketing a native app is extremely expensive and time-consuming. There's a reason you see so many app commercials!
In our experience, consumers keep a few core apps on their phones. They rarely tend to keep/use smaller niche apps, especially in the job board space.
How do I verify my domain with Google?
There are only two ways that you can link you JobBoard.io site with your Google Webmaster Tools account:
Use your Google Analytics account to link.

Can I customize the look & feel of my job board?
Yes. You can choose from our growing library of pre-built themes or you can customize your site directly with CSS and HTML.
Do you support multiple active languages?
Unfortunately, we only support one active language on a job board at a time. However, there are many platforms that let you add additional languages to your site.

- Your JobBoard.io site can run on a sub-domain of your site, such as jobs.yourdomain.com
You can review the plans available on our pricing page.
What the heck is a .io domain name?
.io is a reference to Input/Output (I/O) - in short, we're nerds. ;)
